This practical handbook presents an evidence model for understanding and treating suicidal behavior in all its forms, providing easy-to-use assessment tools for clinical practice-including "interactive" self-assessments to highlight important ethical points and checklists against which readers can assess how they are doing-clinical vignettes and narratives to illustrate key assessment and intervention principles, and an intervention model for working with suicide survivors. Each chapter is designed for use in individual instruction or as a training module.
