"Suicide Prevention Techniques" is highly engaging and thought-provoking, providing a detailed description of a genuinely person-focused approach to crisis care. Joy writes with a refreshingly honest and caring tone, and it is clear why so many clients have found the support of Suicide Crisis transformative. -- Emma Cernis, Clinical Psychologist and Wellcome Trust Clinical Doctoral Fellow, University of Oxford Department of Psychiatry
This book provides a clearly written outline of the core skills and personal qualities needed to try to save lives at risk of suicide. If it's not on your course reading list it should be. I haven't seen a better description of how to always have hope, maintain that when others have none, and to value all human life as if it were a member of your family. -- Vivien Isaac-Curson, a retired Psychiatric Nurse and Clinical Coordinator
This invaluable book is not a top-down medicalised view of how to save lives but rather a compassionate account of immensely practical lessons from someone who has experienced suicidal crisis and has used her knowledge and understanding to so effectively support others. -- Dr Heather Castillo, author of Personality Disorder Temperament or Trauma? and The Reality of Recovery in Personality Disorder.
This book should be compulsory reading for all those who work with and care for those vulnerable to suicide. We can and must do more. -- Steven Powles is a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers. He has worked with Joy in helping families who have lost someone to suicide navigate their way through the inquest process.
