This article explores the consequences of a therapy group member’s suicide on the group’s interactions & coping style. The exploration takes an ethnographic approach, which emphasizes a deep description of the circumstances surrounding the group member’s death, the meaning of that action for the members, including the therapists, & the group coming to terms with the crisis.
