by Dr. Thomas Joiner

7:30 AM - 4:00 PM

In his theory of suicidal behavior, Dr. Thomas Joiner, PhD proposes three factors that mark those most at risk of death: The feeling of being a burden on loved ones; the sense of isolation; and, perhaps chillingly, the learned ability to hurt oneself. He tests the theory against diverse facts taken from clinical anecdotes, history, literature, popular culture, anthropology, epidemiology, genetics, and neurobiology--facts about suicide rates among men and women; white and African-American men; people with anorexia, athletes, sex workers, and physicians; members of cults, sports fans, and citizens of nations in crisis.
