Book Description

July 26, 2004 1593851006 978-1593851002 1
Grounded in a comprehensive model of suicidality, this volume describes an empirically supported cognitive-behavioral treatment approach. The clinician is guided to assess suicidal behavior and implement interventions tailored to the severity, chronicity, and diagnostic complexity of the patient's symptoms. Provided are session-by-session guidelines and clear-cut strategies for defusing the initial crisis; reducing suicidal behavior; restructuring suicide-related beliefs; and building interpersonal assertiveness, distress tolerance, problem solving, and other key skills. A special chapter covers risk assessment. Enhancing the book's utility are tables, figures, and sample handouts and forms, some of which may be reproduced for professional use.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Offer[s] clinicians for the first time a flexible and unique therapeutic program that is direct, time-limited, and buttressed by empirical support. Thus, clinicians facing the urgency of suicidal behavior can decide on the content and timing of interventions designed to eliminate suicidal behavior, and assess in an ongoing way the effectiveness of their efforts. Even if not often confronted with suicidal behavior, clinicians who become familiar with the procedures outlined in this manual will gain confidence in their ability to deal with suicidal crises." --From the Series Editor Note by David H. Barlow

"This important book presents a short-term cognitive-behavioral treatment model that will be perused with interest by all contemporary suicidologists. The authors are exemplary scientist-practitioners within the field of psychology. They have produced a noteworthy, clinically useful contribution." --Edwin S. Shneidman, PhD., Professor of Thanatology Emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles

"From premier scholar-clinicians, this remarkable book deftly guides the practitioner through the considerable challenges of working with suicidal patients. It is among the first (and only) comprehensive works of its kind. The authors manage to incorporate the wisdom of empirical science into a realistic and user-friendly practical approach, a rare accomplishment in the contemporary literature. The liberal use of intriguing case examples helps illustrate a broad range of theoretically grounded, intuitively appealing techniques and interventions that are essential to lifesaving clinical work. Written with great clarity, the book will be valuable for everyone from graduate students to mature clinicians. I am certain that the ripple of this book's impact on the field of clinical suicidology will be seen for many years to come." --David A. Jobes, PhD, Department of Psychology, The Catholic University of America; Past President, American Association of Suicidology

"This book fills an important gap in the array of manualized treatment approaches that are currently available. Drawing on extensive research and experience in the treatment of suicidal individuals, the authors have fashioned a flexible, empirically validated, time-limited approach that will be welcomed by therapists of all persuasions. The book provides specific, detailed information on the 'why' and 'how' of a variety of integrated techniques. Replete with assessment forms, charts, and practical guidelines, this book will serve as a basic reference for therapists facing one of the most challenging clinical situations." --George A. Clum, PhD, Department of Psychology, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University


"The text has numerous strengths including its theoretically grounded approach towards assessing suicide risk, clear session-by-session outlines of the implementation of both short- and long-term treatment strategies, and rich descriptions of empirical support for the techniques proposed....An exceptional guide to help clinicians effectively and efficiently treat suicidality, and the authors animate the test by providing a multitude of client worksheets, session transcripts, and flow charts. This book will definitely be on my list of recommendations for students and colleagues who want either to build or to strengthen their foundation in conducting cognitive therapy."--Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews
(Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews 2004-07-28)

"Provides practitioners with a working manual for dealing with the most serious, complex, and potentially lethal clinical problem found in any treatment and psychiatric rehabilitation setting....Should be on the shelf of all practitioners who interface and treat suicidal individuals."--Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal
(Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal 2004-07-28)

"A lifeline for both the patient and the therapist....Provides a rich web of techniques, advice, suggestions, and instructions to which the therapist and patient can hold onto in times of a life-and-death crisis without the therapist being overburdened by the sense of responsibility or the patient with uncontrollable anxiety....Very impressive."--Death Studies
(Death Studies 2004-07-28)

"By incorporating the clinical information contained in this book, clinicians will be better able to decide when and how to effectively intervene in the suicidal syndrome....This book is comprehensive, well-organized, and articulate."--Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
(Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease 2004-07-28)

1.0 out of 5 stars Authors are extremely verbose January 15, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These authors wrote as if they were paid by the number of words. The gist of the book is that suicidal patients should be treated with Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Change a few words here and there and the book could be CBT treatment for just about any Axis I diagnosis. They spend a lot of time reviewing literature on CBT. They repeat the same ideas over and over again throughout the book. What little they had of substance on suicidal behavior would be best presented in a small pamphlet rather than a book. The book also seems to assume that the client is high functioning, and articulate. In my opinion, this book is written to impress rather than inform. I bought the book because David Barlow is listed as the editor. I am greatly surprised that David H. Barlow would allow his name to appear on such a poorly written book.

The lead author, David Rudd, PhD, ABPP, has devoted most of his career to working to prevent suicide. He and his colleagues have produced an outstanding book on both understanding and treating persons with suicidal intent. This book has my highest endorsement.
