Andrew McKie
Issued Date: 11 Jun 2013

Abstract


The prevention of suicide is often discussed alongside the ethics of suicide itself. The ethics of prevention often centres around the use of ethical principles in the context of dilemmas and problems. The limitations of this approach are highlighted by focussing upon the concept of the moral community. Relational virtues arising from this commu-nity suggest important strategies for both client and carer alike.
