Summary

Inform yourself with thorough and accurate knowledge about the incidence of adolescent suicide. Adolescent Suicide serves to correct erroneous conceptions--held by the public and professionals--about the nature of suicidal behavior among the young, thereby promoting the opportunity for more prompt and effective evaluation and management of potentially fatal incidents.

In this landmark volume, authorities address the problem of suicide among adolescents, which has emerged in recent years as a significant public health problem. In-depth discussions of the epidemiology and behavioral characteristics of youth who attempt and complete suicide, risk factors, methods of death, circumstances of the suicidal act, and reasons for the dramatic increase in the phenomenon provide social workers, educators, psychologists, and psychiatrists with systematic information that can be used in both prevention and intervention efforts. There is also a wealth of valuable material here on school-based suicide prevention programs, strategies for managing and counseling the relatives, peers, and classmates of individuals who have committed suicide, and coping with suicide in residential treatment centers.
