In this article, a truly personal experience of a therapist-patient relationship is being described. This is the experience with a patient Ms. A, who attempted a suicidal act. The nature of demands, difficulties, and emotions the therapist was exposed to while managing this patient is depicted. The therapist-patient relationship was believed to influence critical care of the patient, and a positive therapeutic relationship was associated with continuity of care and favorable treatment response. Human emotions are based on ideas, and control of emotional turmoil may be achieved by changing one's ideas. This presentation will describe the need for us to focus on the specific integrative skills required in handling relationship issues in suicidal patients. The intervention efforts focused on decreasing the suffering experienced, while simultaneously building a patient's capacity to cope with difficulties from an emotional perspective.
