The article examines the applicability of an Adlerian view of suicide as sabotaged social interest to clients in a contemporary multicultural context. The approach examined here also focuses on common human factors in suicide and common useful approaches to working with people and communities affected by suicide. AdlerТs theory of suicide as sabotaged social interest was conceived and developed in the early 20th century, during a time of global political crises, economic chaos, and social unsettledness. Sadly, this makes this theory particularly applicable to the first two decades of the 21st century as well.
