Suicide Meaning Conversation
Suicide Narratives Suicide Meaning Conversation (SMC) supports people to develop a meaningful narrative that sits behind, beyond and central to the journey of arriving at the suicidal experience, especially when this is an ongoing and repetitive experience (as it is for so many). The SMC seeks to develop understanding of the experiences of suicide in a person’s life as meaningful and important. The SMC offers a space to explore a person’s experiences of suicide from the first time a person experienced suicidal feeling, until the current moment.
The SMC is a semi-structured interview inspired by the Maastricht Interview of Voice Hearing (Corstens, Escher, & Romme, 2008) and the Power Threat Meaning Framework (Johnstone & Boyle, 2018) structure.
