by

Treating Suicidal Behavior: An Effective, Time-Limited Approach (Treatment Manuals for Practitioners) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This manual provides an empirically supported approach to treating suicidality that is specifically tailored to today's managed care environment. Structured yet flexible, the model is fully compatible with current best practice standards. The authors establish the empirical and theoretical foundations for time-limited treatment and describe the specific tasks involved in assessment and intervention. The book then details effective ways to conduct a rapid case conceptualization and outpatient risk assessment, determine and implement individualized treatment targets, and monitor treatment outcomes. Outlined are clear-cut intervention techniques that focus on symptom management, restructuring the patient's suicidal belief system, and building such key skills as interpersonal assertiveness, distress tolerance, and problem solving. Other topics covered include the role of the therapeutic relationship, applications to group work and longer-term therapy, the use of medications, patient selection, and termination of treatment. Illustrated with helpful clinical examples, the book features numerous tables, figures, and sample handouts and forms, some of which may be reproduced for professional use.

Book News Annotation:

A manual tailored to the managed-care environment that provides a framework for the clinician to quickly determine and accomplish treatment goals, taking into account the severity, chronicity, and diagnostic complexity of the patient's symptoms. Offers guidance on treating all aspects of suicidal behavior, discussing the problem from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. Describes the treatment process in depth and presents a session-by-session outline of key treatment components. Rudd (Baylor U.) and his two co-authors are psychologists who teach at universities in Texas and Florida.
