My name is Fredric Matteson. As a therapist and suicidologist with 30 years in the mental health field, I am the Creator and Founder of Contextual-Conceptual Therapy (CCT) -- an educational approach to helping acutely suicidal persons. In my role as an educator I have had the great pleasure and opportunity to be invited to speak before Linda Wolf's Teen Talking Circle trainees. Over the years I have been greatly impressed and inspired by Linda and the TTC vision to help facilitate compassionate listening and the permission and encouragement of each person's authentic voice to be expressed and to be heard. It is this self-validation that strikes at the core of the suicidal dilemma and that serves as a basis for true individual autonomy and family resiliency
