Hot call to a warm line: Preliminary explorations into doing suicide prevention
Unformatted Document Text:  7 feelings without indicating when she feels that way and when she does not. In turn, the working peer seeks an assessment of the current status of these feelings; the previously implied and unstated “now” gets specified with “is this one of the times”? When repeated in line 117, DH replaces “it” with the reference to her trouble as “suicidal.” Then, in line 118, the caller using a marked acknowledgement (“no”) and a temporal indicator (“tonight”) to clearly reject the working peer’s query, indicating that now is not one of those times where she feels “very depressed.” This makes the potential “trouble” not currently relevant, although DH’s “oh okay” does not express some relief and seems not much different than the other times he uses this to indicate he simply acknowledges the caller’s report as “news”. With the trouble not being current and this not seeming to be a “hot” call, the working peer can work on addressing this “warm” problem. DH initially has some difficulty here, indicated by the long pause preceding and within this next turn, the false start (“alright uhm:”), and two stutter starts (“I ah- I n-“). There is a sense that to DH this is still a serious situation that requires a problem-solving response. With nothing to suggest, he appropriately seeks out information of what type of help she is seeking from him, while also indicating his genuine interest in the caller (“I want to help you”) and the importance of her troubles to him. Given this shift to a problem-solving mode, the working peer does not wait for the caller’s answer; he suggests something he can easily do: “talk” to her. The caller’s repeat of this suggestion confirms it as a viable solution. An agreement of how DH can help the caller has been reached. Then, the caller returns to more reports of her “life story” and talk about her pets. Her “life story” went on to report on her widowhood and loss of middle class status. Pauses and tokens in line 191-194 indicate that the call is between topics, as this prior topic was closed by the working peer’s acknowledgement in line 191 and the long pause that follows.

feelings without indicating when she feels that way and when she does not. In turn, the working
peer seeks an assessment of the current status of these feelings; the previously implied and
unstated “now” gets specified with “is this one of the times”? When repeated in line 117, DH
replaces “it” with the reference to her trouble as “suicidal.” Then, in line 118, the caller using a
marked acknowledgement (“no”) and a temporal indicator (“tonight”) to clearly reject the
working peer’s query, indicating that now is not one of those times where she feels “very
depressed.” This makes the potential “trouble” not currently relevant, although DH’s “oh okay”
does not express some relief and seems not much different than the other times he uses this to
indicate he simply acknowledges the caller’s report as “news”.
With the trouble not being current and this not seeming to be a “hot” call, the working
peer can work on addressing this “warm” problem. DH initially has some difficulty here,
indicated by the long pause preceding and within this next turn, the false start (“alright uhm:”),
and two stutter starts (“I ah- I n-“). There is a sense that to DH this is still a serious situation that
requires a problem-solving response. With nothing to suggest, he appropriately seeks out
information of what type of help she is seeking from him, while also indicating his genuine
interest in the caller (“I want to help you”) and the importance of her troubles to him. Given this

Her “life story” went on to report on her widowhood and loss of middle class status.
