This volume presents current ideas and scientific findings on key topics in the field of suicidology. Chapters from noted authorities address a broad range of psychological, social, and biological factors in suicidal behavior and report on advances in prevention and treatment. Topics covered include adolescent suicide, psychopharmacological treatment for at-risk patients, cultural beliefs and behaviors, and cognitive risk factors. Also addressed are the scientific basis of clinical practice in suicidology, suicidality in children and older adults, and the debates around physician-assisted death. Designed for both professionals and students, the book demonstrates the role of high-quality research in promoting a fuller understanding of suicidal behavior and facilitating the development of effective therapeutic interventions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Review of Suicidology, 2000 sets the foundation for an evidence-based approach to one of the most pressing public health challenges of the new millennium--the prevention of suicidal behavior. Not only are our achievements acknowledged, but our limitations are as well, providing a balanced view for undergraduate and postgraduate students of suicidology." --Robert D. Goldney, MD, President, International Association for Suicide Prevention; Department of Psychiatry, University of Adelaide, Australia
"Every clinician working with psychiatric patients is on the front lines of the war against suicide. The major weapon is knowledge. This volume provides a wealth of information on patterns of suicide, risk factors, and effective treatment approaches for major psychiatric disorders. It reviews a broad landscape of research that will richly reward the reader." --J. John Mann, MD, Professor of Psychiatry Columbia University; Chief of Neuroscience, New York State Psychiatric Institute

"Sections on basic research, treatment issues, high-risk groups, and ethics present the latest information and sophisticated, well-thought-out recommendations in a well-organized and well-written text. Though the introduction says that the target audience is the individual with no background in suicidology, experienced researchers and clinicians would also value this volume....this book is the best of the best....this book is indeed state of the art....Educated laypersons, practicing clinicians, and suicide researchers would all be glad to have it on their shelf." --"Death Studies"
