by

Treating Suicidal Behavior: An Effective, Time-Limited Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This manual provides an empirically supported treatment approach for suicidality that is specifically tailored to today's managed care environment. The authors present an innovative framework to help the clinician rapidly determine and accomplish essential treatment goals, taking into account the severity, chronicity, and diagnostic complexity of the patient's symptoms. Carefully structured, yet flexible enough for the realities of day-to-day practice, the treatment model offers guidance on treating all aspects of suicidal behavior. It is fully compatible with current standards of care and uniquely designed for maximum effectiveness in the time-limited setting.

Synopsis:

Grounded in a comprehensive model of suicidality, this volume describes an empirically supported cognitive-behavioral treatment approach. The clinician is guided to assess suicidal behavior and implement interventions tailored to the severity, chronicity, and diagnostic complexity of the patient's symptoms. Provided are session-by-session guidelines and clear-cut strategies for defusing the initial crisis; reducing suicidal behavior; restructuring suicide-related beliefs; and building interpersonal assertiveness, distress tolerance, problem solving, and other key skills. A special chapter covers risk assessment. Enhancing the book's utility are tables, figures, and sample handouts and forms, some of which may be reproduced for professional use.
