Suicide Over the Life Cycle: Risk Factors, Assessment, and Treatment of Suicidal Patients attempts to solve the mystery of suicide by filling in the gaps in our understanding about risk factors and treatment of suicidal patients, and by integrating and translating current knowledge about suicidal behavior into practical treatment considerations.

This book brings together the research studies and clinical experience of more than 40 internationally recognized contributors who paint an insightful and thought-provoking portrait of the suicidal patient at various stages of the life span. A comprehensive guide, this superb text is a practical and encyclopedic compendium of assessment and intervention strategies that the clinician can use in day-to-day treatment of suicidal patients.
