Suicide: Understanding and Responding

Suicide: Understanding and Responding

by Douglas G. Jacobs, Herbert N. Brown, Herbert N. Brown

Editorial Reviews

This is a major collection, a collation of materials drawn from Harvard Medical School conferences on the subject of suicide. It is particularly wide-ranging, encompassing biological, psychological, sociological and cultural perspectives, and culminating in an examination of the moral or philosophical aspects of suicide. It's refreshing to find experts acknowledging the therapeutic community's current limitations in responding to the problem of suicide. Recommended for both scholarly and general collections.
