For suicidal victims, the habit of hurting themselves can tackled through applying the dynamic single subject approach. This would mean that the changes in the behavior of the patient must be considered in order to find ways to help to make decisions that will induce happiness. The independent variable which is the dynamic changes in the behavior will provide the dependant variables, or the methods to stop the change from a positive mood to a negative mood.
