Evaluating and Treating Adolescent Suicide Attempters by Anthony Spirito

Book Description

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the emotional, behavioral and cognitive characteristics of adolescents who have attempted suicide. Each chapter opens with a case study vignette from the author's extensive clinical files followed by a summary of the empirical literature. Assessment and treatment practices close each chapter. While suicide is the third largest killer of adolescents, most suicide attempts do not result in death. Therefore the treatment of the suicide attempter following the attempt becomes a significant part of the clinician's work with these adolescents. Moreover, the precursors and behavioral markers for a suicide attempt become important signals for the school counsellor, youth worker, or therapist. This book also include assessment measures to use when evaluating an adolescent who has attempted suicide. It includes an outline form of an assessment battery for adolescents who have attempted suicide. It analyzes and discusses treatment and case studies. It presents detailed descriptions of specific therapy techniques useful with adolescents who attempt suicide. It includes succinct reviews of the literature, ways to measure relevant factors related to suicidal behavior, tips for clinicians, and reviews of pertinent assessment measures.
