Editorial Reviews

Review

"Shea's approach to suicide risk assessment is at once elegant in its simplicity and comprehensive in its scope and depth." (Preventing Suicide, 3/1/2004)

"This book is, to date, one of the most helpful and well-written works about the in-depth evaluation of suicidal patients." (The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, Volume 191, Number 10, October 2003)



". . . remarkably concise and valuable body of information for clinicians at any level in any specialty." --Counselor: The Magazine for Addiction Professionals

"This outstanding book is informative, interesting, and clinically useful. . . . It will be meaningful and helpful to experienced practitioners, residents, other mental health clinicians, and students." --American Journal of Psychiatry

"In this highly readable, engaging volume, Dr. Shea makes the process of discovering suicidality come alive. Even if you are not directly involved in suicide risk assessment, this is a very worthwhile read. If you are directly involved, this is a must read." --School Psychology Resources Online

". . . a concise, carefully conceptualized, well-written book . . . highly recommended for all psychiatric residents and all other mental health students. Their teachers, as well, will profit greatly by reading it." --Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

From the Back Cover

Critical Acclaim for The Practical Art of Suicide Assessment

"There is . . . no better guide for learning about and clinically assessing the phenomenology of suicidal states. Penned with a compelling elegance and charm, The Practical Art of Suicide Assessment is brimming with clinical wisdom, enlightening case illustrations, and a vibrant sense of compassion."-David A. Jobes, PhD, past president, American Association of Suicidology

"If I were asked to recommend only one book to equip clinicians to conduct the best possible suicide risk assessments, The Practical Art of Suicide Assessment would be it."-Thomas E. Ellis, PsyD, ABPP, past director, Clinical Division of the American Association of Suicidology

"A concise, carefully conceptualized, well-written book . . . highly recommended for all psychiatric residents and all other mental health students."-Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"This outstanding book is informative, interesting, and clinically useful."-American Journal of Psychiatry

The Practical Art of Suicide Assessment covers all the critical elements of suicide assessment-from risk factor analysis to evaluating clients with borderline personality disorders or psychotic process. This highly acclaimed text provides mental health professionals with the tools they need to assess a client's suicide risk and assign appropriate levels of care using the highly acclaimed interview strategy for eliciting suicidal ideation-the Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events (the CASE Approach).
