This article is a revised version of an invited plenary address given at the 39th Annual Conference of the American Association of Suicidology. The authors outline & summarize the different ways professionals & survivors come to an understanding of suicide. They explain how each group often exists independently & separate from the other & call for dialogue. They argue both perspectives are essential in advancing suicidology & to give hope & meaning to those bereaved by suicide. (14 refs.)
