The author describes a response to suicide that was treated successfully with psychotherapy. A 31-year old male had experienced anxiety, insomnia, & hallucinogenic episodes following the death by suicide of a male friend. Through therapy it was revealed that the friend was very much like the father of the subject, & evoked memories of neglect & anger in this disturbed young male. He was able to work through his anger in brief psychotherapy & continued with long-term counselling. (NBB)
