This chapter reports psychoanalytic research on 7 adolescents who had each made at least one serious suicide attempt & presents a replication of the findings using the psychoanalyatic material of another adolescent suicide case. The investigation demonstrated that attempted suicide in adolescence is not an impulsive act but the end point in a pathological regression.
