Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Curran, a Massachusetts school psychologist, presents a comprehensive review of adolescent suicide research: the reasons, the often negative reactions of mental health professionals, and information about assessment, treatment, and prevention. His formal, factual style is directed at professionals, but parents and interested laypersons will benefit from several case studies illustrating the deep roots of emotional disturbance. What enlivens an otherwise competent but theoretical discussion are the compassionate and insightful conclusions that all suicidal behavior should be regarded as desperate pleas for help, not acts of ``coercion and manipulation,'' and that subtle predictors can even elude therapists. Quinnett, unlike Curran, primarily addresses suicidal young people. The director of crisis services at Spokane's Community Mental Health Center, Quinnett tries to dissuade through logic (e.g., horror stories of bungled suicide attempts); facts about anger, loneliness, depression, and ambivalence; and philosophical discussions about the healing power of time and the human need for strong beliefs. Though his intentions are laudable, his arguments persuasive, and his suggestions sensible, the information can be easily misinterpreted by confused and/or hopeless individualsthe author's main audience.
