The authors develop a different perspective of suicide. They shift their focus from an ethical statement (e.g. rational suicide) to the ethical justification for intervention based on the needs & interests of the therapeutic profession & professionals. They suggest situational case-centered ethics for suicide intervention. Some practical implications for the intervening care-giver are discussed.(RA)
