Overview

Updating the work to reflect current epidemiological data, changes in recent clinical understanding, and other advances, Berman (executive director, American Association of Suicidology), Jobes (psychology, Catholic U. of America), and Silverman (senior advisor, National Suicide Prevention Resource Center) present a psychological monograph on the theory, research, practice, and intervention in the area of adolescent suicide. In turn, chapters treat epidemiology, the theoretical context, the empirical context, assessment, an "integrative-eclectic approach to treatment," standards of care and malpractice in suicide treatment, and prevention. Also included is a brand new chapter on survivors of suicide and "postvention." Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
