PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Looking at adolescence as a period of turmoil as well as abrupt physical and mental changes, it is not surprising that in western countries suicide is the primary cause of death in adolescents and young adults ages 15–24. Most therapists treating adolescents encounter patients who frequently engage in suicidal behavior. This significantly challenges the therapeutic bond and influences the therapeutic space in a unique way. In this article, we address the challenges specific to the therapeutic alliance in treating adolescents presenting suicidal behaviors. While literature on the nature of the therapeutic bond with adult suicide attempters is available, literature on the distinguishing characteristics of the therapeutic bond with adolescent attempters is lacking. Two vignettes are presented to illustrate this distinctive alliance.
