Overview

For the past decade, Adolescent Suicide: Assessment and Intervention has been recognized as the best and most authoritative text on this most tragic of subjects. This long-awaited second edition incorporates almost 15 years of new research and critical thinking about clinical assessment and intervention in addition to an expanded focus on prevention. Authored by three of the world’s leading experts on suicide, including among them a psychiatrist, this book is a must-have reference and text for those working with this at-risk population.

This volume reflects on what is current and promising in working with the suicidal adolescent and provides information relevant to theory, research, practice, and intervention. It provides empirically based findings that can be easily integrated and translated for practical use by the clinician. In addition, the book includes discussion of malpractice risk management, over 40 case illustrations, and an extensive list of references—all of which help provide a thorough understanding of the at-risk-for-suicide patient.
