Description

The second edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Suicide Assessment and Management has been extensively updated and expanded to more thoroughly reflect the challenges clinicians face in assessing and managing suicide risk -- and ultimately in preventing tragedy. The number of chapters has been increased approximately 20%, from 28 to 34. In addition, 22 new chapter authors were recruited for the second edition, representing nearly half of the 50 authors from the first edition, to allow the reader to obtain a more varied and sometimes new point of view.Focusing on core competencies where appropriate, the book offers many new features:  An extensively revised organization of sections and chapters to coincide with the natural sequence of events in evaluating and treating patients. Depending on where clinicians are in this series of events, they may more readily access information they need. A robust and entirely new section on suicide prevention that includes chapters on lethal means restrictions, suicide prevention programs, and current research related to prevention A chapter on suicide in the military, which was added to address the critical social challenge of depression and posttraumatic stress disorder in soldiers returningfrom Iraq and Afghanistan An entire chapter on the role of the Internet in subjecting people to intimidation, humiliation, and the exposure of private acts to the public sphere. Cyberbullying is an emergent problem, that clinicians should know about. An extensive review of neurobiological findings related to the risk and completion of suicide, many of which have been reported since the last edition was published A thoughtful discussion of the myriad issues raised by managed care, including "split" treatment, involving two clinicians managing a patient's care. A thorough exploration of the essential aspects of suicide risk assessment. Unlike physicians in other fields, psychiatrists treating patients at risk for suicide do not have access to diagnostic procedures and laboratory tests to assist them. With this new edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Suicide Assessment and Management, clinicians can hone their assessment skills and ensure that their knowledge of suicide assessment and management is current, evidence-based, and comprehensive. When dealing with patients at risk for self-harm, nothing less will do.show more

A thorough understanding of suicide, risk assessment, and treatment is a required competency for psychiatrists. At the same time, the demands of managed care make suicide assessment more difficult and more fraught with risk, magnifying the clinician's need for a comprehensive and current resource. Surpassing the first edition in terms of structure, scope, and hands-on utility, this new edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Suicide Assessment and Management covers evaluating and treating patients. This includes assessment, major mental disorders, treatment, treatment settings, special populations, special topics, prevention, and the aftermath of suicide. The number of chapters has been increased approximately 20%, from 28 to 34. In addition, 22 new chapter authors were recruited for the second edition, representing nearly half of the 50 authors from the first edition, to present more diverse perspectives. The result is a larger and more substantive text, one that addresses everything today's practitioner needs to know, from the basic biological mechanisms associated with suicide to the effects of Internet harassment. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Suicide Assessment and Management is essential reading.show more
