Suicide Assessment and Treatment: Empirical and Evidence-Based Practices

Suicide Assessment and Treatment: Empirical and Evidence-Based Practices Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suicide is an event that cannot be ignored, minimized, or left untreated. However, all too often mental health professionals and health care practitioners are unprepared to treat suicidal clients. This text offers the latest guidance to frontline professionals who will likely encounter such clients throughout their careers, and to educators teaching future clinicians.

The book discusses how to react when clients reveal suicidal thoughts; the components of comprehensive suicide assessments; evidence-based treatments such as crisis intervention, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and more; and ethical and legal issues that may arise. Case studies, exercises, quizzes, and other features make this a must-have reference for graduate level courses.

Key topics: Risk and identification of suicidal behaviors across the lifespan (children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly) The links between suicidality and mental illness (psychotic disorders, mood disorders, and substance abuse) Suicide risk among special populations (military personnel, LGBTQ individuals, the homeless, and more) A model for crisis intervention with suicidal individuals

Synopsis:

This book is a graduate level text designed to teach the latest, evidence-based treatments for suicide. While it is intended primarily as a text, it may also be a useful reference for health care practitioners. The book discusses suicide identification, assessment, and treatment across various special populations. It also includes textbook features such as chapter objectives, vignettes, role play exercises, quizzes, case studies, and more.

This book is designed to provide graduate students and health professionals with the essential knowledge in the following areas:

  • Incidence and prevalence rates of suicidal behaviors in various demographic and diagnostic groups
  • Risk and identification of suicidal behaviors across the lifecycle (children/adolescents, adults, elderly)
  • Risk and identification of suicidal behaviors in special populations (military, LGBT, and more)
  • Impact and treatment of survivors of suicide
