This book discusses the dramatic increase in youth suicide and looks at why it is now one of the leading causes of death in young people. Presented in a balanced, factual manner, using both empirical and clinical data, the authors give specific suggestions that they have found useful as experienced clinicians. The book begins with a discussion and exploration of the problem from an epidemiological, demographic, and socio-cultural perspective. There is a discussion of assessment concerning "objective" paper and pencil self-report instruments and an examination of their validity; and reliability. The reader is also provided with the legal and ethical perspectives of suicide and their impact on the helper, "special issues" such as the aftermath of suicide, cluster suicide, and school-based suicide prevention programming.
