<br> Clinical depression is an illness that effects us psychologically, biologically and socially. It may be brought on by sadness, anger and according to some researchers genetically.

Running head: SUICIDAL CLIENTS 1 Working with a Suicidal Client Daron Elam Walden University Working with a Suicidal Client Determining: Suicidal or Not? Most suicide attempts occur in the context of interpersonal discord or other severe life stress (Butcher, Mineka & Hooley, 2006, p.292). In determining whether a person is suicidal or not, there are trends or commonality populations that make it easier for a counselor to narrow the process. Mood disorders, separated or divorced persons, borderline personality and anti-personality disorders also come at a heightened risk. (Butcher, Mineka & Hooley, 2006).
PTSD and depression are related psychological conditions. PTSD is a syndrome that develops after a person witnesses, participates, or hears of an extreme traumatic stressor. The reaction to this experience is typically fear and helplessness and ultimately depression as seen in this patient: reliving the events over and over and trying to avoid being reminded of it (Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas, 2011). Furthermore, psychosocial and environmental stressors are also known risk factors for depression (National Institute of Mental Health, 2012). Research has shown that stress in the form of loss, especially death of close family members or friends , can trigger depression in vulnerable individuals.

In psychological therapy, specifically, psychodynamic therapy, depression is thought to be derived from a repressed sense of loss and from anger unconsciously turned inward. Therefore, psychoanalytic treatment tries to help the patient achieve insight into the repressed conflict, and often encourages the outward release of the hostility that is being directed inward. Recent studies have shown that a form of psychotherapy that concentrates on present-day interactions between the depressed person and the social environment is quite effective for alleviating unipolar depression..
