Using the semantic differential, the author studied the view of life and death of 3 groups of differing lethality level women. He found that high lethality subjects rated life negatively and death positively. This may be a way to differentiate between manipulative clients and those who are more committed to death as an option. The highly lethal may require more restraint and social engineering treatment programs. (JLH)
