Sydney, Australia (WiredPRNews.com) – A self-help course has been blamed for the suicide of a woman in Sydney four years ago. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), a coroner in Australia stated on Tuesday that the death of 34-year-old Rebekah Lawrence, who committed suicide by jumping from an office window resulted from her participation in the controversial self-help seminar, The Turning Point.

Deputy State Coroner Malcolm MacPherson is quoted by the AP as stating of the findings, “The evidence is overwhelming that the act of stepping out of a window to her death was the tragic culmination of a developing psychosis that had its origins in a self-development course known as ‘The Turning Point.”

As noted in the report, MacPherson recommended the creation of laws for stricter regulations for courses designed for self-improvement.
