This presentation discussed group work programs the authors developed to prevent suicidal behaviours among teenagers & to increase their feelings of self-understanding & self-acceptance. Special exercises were used to identify the students’ understanding of life & to identify at-risk pupils. Different stress situations are modelled & various forms of aggressive behaviour, especially suicide, are analyzed. One of the main results reported is a reduction in the risk of suicidal behavior.
