Dr Durkin sees himself as a ‘Neo-Arisotelian’, a term that refers to the thinking style of the Greek philosopher Aristotle and that is applied in today’s world.
John Durkin PhD was a firefighter for 17 years. After enjoying ‘the best job in the world’ he submitted to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and saw a catastrophic downturn. He’d sensed that downturn in other firefighters. When two committed suicide he wondered how to stop it. Psychiatrists didn’t seem able because they hadn’t helped him, but maybe he could find a way.
He embarked on an academic career and motivated by the loss of those colleagues learned how to prevent suicide. Now he teaches others to do it.
