"The Oxford Handbook of Suicide and Self-Injury, under Professor Nock's editorship, presents a comprehensive, current, and incisive picture about the assessment, classification, course, etiology, treatment, and prevention of suicidal and self-injurious behavior. Written with scientific rigor and clinical insight, it belongs in the library of every scientist and clinician interested in suicide and self-injury across the lifespan. In addition to providing a snapshot of the current state of science of suicide and self-injury, this book also paints a clear picture of the limits of our current understanding, thereby providing a roadmap for where the field needs to go in the future." -David Brent, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Endowed Chair in Suicide Studies, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine "This extremely informative text includes 29 well-constructed chapters by experts in each respective area. [T]he organization of the text is appealing and reader-friendly [and] have a number of consistencies that are helpful to the reader. The Oxford Handbook of Suicide and Self-Injury covers a diverse array of topics in a transtheoretical and multidisciplinary nature that will appeal to a wide variety of readers. The extensive reach of this book will likely have a broad impact. Seasoned therapists, physicians, and researchers will also benefit from a deepened understanding of the important concepts covered in the book. The Oxford Handbook of Suicide and Self-Injuryr sets the groundwork for future quality work on the prevention and intervention of self-injurious behaviors." -Colleen M. Cummings, PsycCRITIQUES "With NSSI as a provisional DSM-5 diagnosis and with changes in the DSM-5 expected to occur more frequently than in the past, The Oxford Handbook of Suicide and Self-Injury can provide clinicians with greater understanding of the issues for assessment and treatment. It also provides the reader the opportunity to be well informed for the coming dialogues about suicide and NSSI." --Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
