Suicidal Behavior in Children and Adolescents (Current Perspectives in Psychology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this remarkably clear and readable evaluation of the research on this topic, Barry Wagner presents the current state of knowledge about suicidal behaviors in children and adolescents, addressing the trends of the past ten years and evaluating available treatment approaches.

 

Wagner provides an in-depth examination of the problem of suicidal behavior within the context of child and adolescent behavior. Among the developmental issues covered are the evolving capacity for emotional self-regulation, change and stresses in family, peer, and romantic relationships, and developing conceptions of time and death. He also provides an up-to-date review of the controversy surrounding the possible influence of antidepressant medications on suicidal behavior. Within the context of an integrative model of the suicide crisis, Wagner discusses issues pertaining to assessment, treatment, and prevention.

About the Author

Barry Wagner is Professor of Psychology and Director of Clinical Training at the Catholic University of America. He lives in Washington, D.C.
