Psychotherapists’ reactions to client suicide are explored. Using a literature review & research, implications are identified for therapists, supervisors, & researchers. Suggestions to therapists include using personal & professional supports, & participating in a post-suicide review. The primary task for supervisors is to create experiences that will positively impact therapists’ beliefs about their professional role. Researchers are encouraged to investigate numerous areas identified by Horn.
