This book offers essential information about assessing, managing, and providing mental health treatment for suicidal adult outpatients.

Suicide is a heartbreaking phenomenon that is the result of innumerable factors embedded in the personal histories and experiences of each patient. Yet despite this complexity, research has uncovered commonalities that can enable mental health practitioners to successfully treat suicidal patients.

In this book, author Sam Knapp guides readers through the full process of treating suicidal patients, from screening to relapse prevention, using effective, research-informed interventions. He explains suicidal behavior through ideation-to-action theories of suicide, and argues for the application of principle-based ethics when making treatment decisions. He emphasizes the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship, and respecting patient autonomy as much as possible in such circumstances. Throughout, he makes current research on suicide accessible and useful to practicing mental health providers, connecting it with practical approaches and case examples informed by the author’s extensive clinical experience.
