Abstract

Older adults frequently engage in such indirect life-threatening behaviorsas extreme lack of self-care, refusal to eat, refusal to take medications,and failure to comply with an understood medical regimen. These behaviors are often classified as non-compliance or passive suicide. Analysis of suchphenomena reveals that these actions can represent attempts by the person to gain control of and to ameliorate a negative life situation. A case is presented which demonstrates the ultimate outcome of engagement in such behavior when it is misinterpreted and left untreated. The functions of indirect life-threatening behavior are discussed.
