This volume presents an authoritative overview of current scientific knowledge about suicide and suicide prevention. Multidisciplinary and comprehensive in scope, the book provides a solid foundation in theory, research, and clinical applications. Issues relevant to clinical case management are highlighted, and various treatment modalities are discussed in light of the latest research findings. Topics covered include the classification and prevalence of suicidal behaviors; social, cultural, and gender contexts of suicide; psychiatric and medical factors; and ethical and legal issues in intervention. Written by three international suicide authorities, the book also includes contributions from other leading scientist-practitioners who report on their respective areas of expertise. Throughout, user-friendly tables, case illustrations, concise summaries of key issues, and annotated references enhance the volume's utility for clinicians, students, and researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is truly an encyclopedic textbook in its scope, comprehensiveness, and feeling of intellectual excitement. It is my essential book." --Edwin S. Shneidman, PhD, Professor of Thanatology Emeritus, UCLA, Founder, American Association of Suicidology

"Maris, Berman, and Silverman are to be congratulated on this important new initiative. Although there have been many books published in the field of suicidology, a comprehensive textbook has been lacking. All readers who want to have a wealth of knowledge about suicide and suicidal behaviors will greatly value having this book on their shelves. Its richness, breadth, and internal consistency make it an excellent resource for clinicians and academicians." --J. John Mann, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons; Chief, Department of Neuroscience, New York State Psychiatric Institute

"A longstanding gap on your bookshelf can now be filled. This volume has been blue-pencilled by Maris, Berman, and Silverman into a disciplined series of integrated chapters, encyclopedic in scope and practical in approach. Every chapter ends with a clear, distilled summary and is enriched with suggestions for the best further reading. Mental health workers will be glad to have this book, as will instructors at the undergraduate and graduate levels and psychiatry training directors. If you want just one book on suicide, buy this one." --John T. Maltsberger, MD
