Suicide Over the Life Cycle: Risk Factors, Assessment, and Treatment of Suicidal Patients attempts to solve the mystery of suicide by filling in the gaps in our understanding about risk factors and treatment of suicidal patients, and by integrating and translating current knowledge about suicidal behavior into practical treatment considerations.

This book brings together the research studies and clinical experience of more than 40 internationally recognized contributors who paint an insightful and thought-provoking portrait of the suicidal patient at various stages of the life span. A comprehensive guide, this superb text is a practical and encyclopedic compendium of assessment and intervention strategies that the clinician can use in day-to-day treatment of suicidal patients.


The editors of this book selected the ambitious task of summarizing the existing knowledge about suicide at different stages of the life course. They have done a excellent job in assembling the existing literature on suicide including risk factors profiles of different age groups, the biochemical basis of suicide, genetic vulnerability, the role of substance abuse, and personality factors. . . . As a practicing mental health professional, this text should be part of one’s library. Its clinical application of the literature makes it a unique contribution to the literature on suicide.—Clinical Gerontologist

Outstanding as a textbook for its rigor and comprehensiveness. This work needs to become an available reference for anyone involved in day-to-day suicide patient assessment and management.—JAMA

The editors of this laudable volume are to be highly commended for producing what will undoubtedly prove to be a landmark work.—Journal of Nervous and Mental Disorders
