Practice-oriented, evidence-based guidance on assessment, management and treatment of suicidal behavior - one of the most devastating problems in modern society.
This book is both a compact ""how-to"" reference, for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, and an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education. Structured similarly to others in the series, it is a ""reader friendly"" guide covering aspects of the clinical assessment, management, and treatment of those at risk for suicide. It makes liberal use of tables, boxed clinical examples, and clinical vignettes, and other tools, for use in daily practice.
The book, which also addresses common obstacles in treating individuals at risk for suicide represents an essential resource for anyone working with this high risk population.
