MALGAREZI, Vitor Apolinário; BOROWSKI, Sílvia Batista Von; CESCONETTO, Rousel Aparecida Zanoni  e  WACHHOLZ, Thaís. Psychologists' perceptions regarding suicide: qualitative research from santa catarina southern scenario. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.2, pp. 169-179. ISSN 2177-093X.

The professional management of suicidal ideation is a complex and little explored challenge. Brazilian statistics show an increase in the incidence and difficulties in protection strategies. Regarding this and considering the Brazilian agreement to create a damage reduction plan, the current study aims to describe perceptions and specificities of psychologists in the monitoring of suicidal risk. It is a qualitative and exploratory study in which six psychologists with a history of attending to the phenomenon granted interviews. From the analysis of the content of such interviews, three axes of analysis were showed, namely: impact of suicide − the professionals' experience, technical and methodological improvement, and ethical disclosure commitment. Furthermore, we highlight the need for significant scientific production related to this theme, to improve discussions, and the possibilities of acting in such a context.
