In the light of recent evidence that suicide intervention workers may experience greater fear of death than the general population, the present study examined the death anxiety of interventionists & its relation to skill in responding to suicidal clients. Compared to 109 matched controls, the interventionists were found to have significantly lower death anxiety, thereby reversing the earlier finding.
