Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcos Modiano-Esquenazi, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book on suicide, risk assessment, and treatment.
Purpose: A principle objective of this book is to provide a thorough understanding of this area. A secondary objective is to provide information on the natural sequence of events in evaluating and treating patients.
Audience: The book is targeted mostly at clinicians (psychiatrists and mental health professionals in general).
Features: The first part of the book's eight parts covers suicide risk assessment, while the second focuses on major mental disorders. Part III encompasses treatment modalities (pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy and ECT) and part IV covers treatment settings such as inpatient versus outpatient. Special populations are examined in part V. In part VI, the authors cover special topics such as the neurobiology of suicide and suicide and the Internet. Part VII discusses the important topic of prevention, and the final part touches on the aftermath of suicide. Throughout the book, figures and tables summarize content and make the topics more understandable. Chapters cover topics that are important for psychiatrists, such as the management of suicidal patients who belong to special populations (elderly patients, children, and adolescents) as well as current information on pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy for suicidal patients. At the end of each chapter there is a summary with key clinical concepts. The references are up to date and include current literature.
Assessment: This is a valuable addition to the psychiatric literature, helping clinicians understand, assess, and treat suicide. The book is well written and provides good, current information about suicide and its prevention.
