Summary
"Suicide is one of the most daunting challenges that clinicians encounter in their practices. Unfortunately, there is a paucity of research designed to conceptualize and treat it. Relatively few interventions have been developed specifically to prevent suicide, and the degree to which interventions with established efficacy apply to suicidal patients is unclear because suicidal patients are often excluded from clinical trials. Cognitive Therapy for Suicidal Patients: Scientific and Clinical Applications crystallizes more than 3 decades of basic, clinical, and therapeutic research, providing a comprehensive review of the psychological factors associated with suicidal behavior. The authors describe their cognitive model of suicide, the instruments they developed to classify and assess suicidal behavior, and effective cognitive intervention techniques for suicidal individuals. The book includes a step-by-step protocol for cognitive therapy that is vividly illustrated in an extended case study. Individual chapters are dedicated to applying the protocol with special populations and overcoming challenges when working with suicidal patients. This book is an important new resource for clinicians by acknowledged experts in the field"--Cover. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
