Publisher Comments:

Multidisciplinary and comprehensive in scope, this volume serves as an authoritative overview of scientific knowledge about suicide and its prevention, providing a foundation in theory, research, and clinical applications. Issues relevant to clinical case management are highlighted, and various treatment modalities are discussed in light of the latest research findings.

Book News Annotation:

Psychologists and psychiatrists, all American but one, offer a broad overview of the current scientific understanding of suicide and its prevention. Considering theory, research, and clinical applications, they cover the foundations of what they call suicidology; sociodemographic and epidemiologic issues; medical and psychiatric issues; indirect self-destruction, ethics, philosophy, and the law; and treatment and prevention.

Topics covered include the classification and prevalence of suicidal behaviors; social, cultural, and gender contexts of suicide; psychiatric and medical factors; and ethical and legal issues in intervention. Written by three international suicide authorities, the book also includes contributions from other leading scientist-practitioners who report on their respective areas of expertise.
