Description

A provocative look at research and practice in suicide prevention - a ""must read"" for all concerned.

The book discusses the contributions that each of the major disciplines have made to suicidology (is there a misplaced devotion to Durkheim’s 100-year-old theories?), and provide an overview of research and theories in some typical areas. Drawing from this, specific recommendations as to what researchers and theorists can do in the future to advance our understanding of suicide and suicide prevention are offered. It is hoped that these recommendations will stimulate research and theorizing so that our understanding of suicide will progress.
