Suicide is a complex human behaviour that remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Although suicidal behaviour continues to perplex clinicians and scholars, there have been recent advances with regard to the research related to the understanding, assessment, and biopsychosocial treatment of suicidal individuals, as well as the prevention of suicidal behaviour. This volume combines the efforts of several leaders in the field of suicidology in an attempt to grasp a better understanding of why people have suicidal thoughts, engage in suicidal behaviour, and ultimately die by suicide. The book is divided into four major parts and provides a comprehensive summary of the exciting progress being made in the field of suicide prevention. Part I discusses epidemiology, epigenetics, and theories of suicide. Part II focuses on assessment, prevention, intervention, and postvention. Part III examines suicide in special populations. Part IV explores suicidal behaviours in psychological disorders. This unique and comprehensive book is intended for graduate students, researchers, clinicians, and professionals who may encounter issues relating to suicide on a regular basis.

This manual provides an empirically supported approach to treating suicidality that is specifically tailored to todays managed care environment. Structured yet flexible, the model is fully compatible with current best practice standards. The authors establish the empirical and theoretical foundations for time-limited treatment and describe the specific tasks involved in assessment and intervention. The book then details effective ways to conduct a rapid case conceptualization and outpatient risk assessment, determine and implement individualized treatment targets, and monitor treatment outcomes. Outlined are clear-cut intervention techniques that focus on symptom management, restructuring the patients suicidal belief system, and building such key skills as interpersonal assertiveness, distress tolerance, and problem solving. Other topics covered include the role of the therapeutic relationship, applications to group work and longer-term therapy, the use of medications, patient selection, and termination of treatment. Illustrated with helpful clinical examples, the book features numerous table, figures, and sample handouts and forms, some of which may be reproduced for professional use.

Suicidal Behavior

Perhaps 30–40% of those who die by suicide progress from thought to nonfatal suicidal behavior to fatal suicidal behavior(Maris, 1992).

Almost one million people die worldwide by suicide each year, making it one of the leading causes of death throughout the lifespan. Suicide attempts outnumber deaths by suicide by a ratio of at least 25:1, those who attempt suicide are at high risk of later death by suicide, and suicide risk is one of the most frequent reasons for admissions to inpatient psychiatric units. Treatment of those at risk for suicide is thus a pressing priority. Research over the past two decades has led to the development of excellent empirically supported treatment methods. This book aims to increase clinicians' access to empirically supported interventions for suicidal behavior, with the hope that these methods will become the standard in clinical practice.

Estimating the risk for suicidal behavior among patients is often a very complex challenge for psychiatrists, general practitioners, psychologists, surgeons, specialists in internal medicine, neurologists, nurses, and social workers. Disease, Pain, and Suicidal Behavior is designed to help you understand the methodological problems involved in the assessment of risk for suicidal behavior in patients with various somatic and psychiatric disorders so you can establish effective approaches to the psychosocial treatment of endangered patients. Through the book’s comprehensive and insightful discussions, you will even learn specific strategies for improving the quality of life of such patients. Disease, Pain, and Suicidal Behavior discusses psychiatric disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, personality disorders, anxiety disorders, and alcohol and drug abuse as risk factors for suicidal behavior. From its helpful and clearly written pages, you will also learn about the role of social factors in suicidal behavior and the relationship between suicidal behavior and biological factors. Perhaps most important of all, you will learn which groups of patients and which disorders are associated with the highest risk of suicide through the book’s critical discussions of: the lifetime risk of suicide in depressed patients the stages of diseases like multiple sclerosis and the strains placed on the patient young male schizophrenics and their vulnerability to self-destructive acts mortality in patients with spinal cord injuries forced reduction in daily activities for patients with heart and lung conditions and resulting emotional instability the high risk of suicide immediately after a cancer diagnosis is given identifying risk factors for a second attempt at suicide questions to ask those at risk for suicidal behavior Recognizing which of your patients run the risk of committing suicide can be an overwhelming task because of the multiplicity of factors involved. Disease, Pain, and Suicidal Behavior, because it examines critically the existing literature and studies on suicide and suicide risk, can help you evaluate and prevent suicidal behavior in a timely manner. You will turn the last of its pages with a much improved understanding of which illnesses and sufferings present an increased risk of suicidal behavior.

Suicide is one of the most important causes of death in modern societies. To develop more effective preventive measures, we have to be aware of and learn more about its neurobiological foundations. In recent years, the tools of modern neurosciences have increasingly been utilized to characterize the pathophysiology of complex human behaviors such as suicide. To improve suicide risk assessment and suicide prevention, a better understanding of its pathophysiology is crucial. This includes research from a variety of disciplines such as neuropsychological, psychosocial and cultural studies but also findings from biochemistry, neuropathology, electrophysiology, immunology, neuroimaging, genetics, and epigenetics. Important results have, for example, been obtained in the field of gene-environment interaction and suicidal behavior. We have just begun to understand how early-life adversity may increase suicide risk by epigenetic mechanisms. Based on such insights, novel therapeutic interventions and preventive measures can be developed. Furthermore, a better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in suicidal behavior could reveal the mechanism of compounds like lithium salts. In this book, suicidal behavior and its prevention is discussed by international experts in the light of the most recent results from a broad spectrum of neurosciences.

Leading experts examine suicidal behavior and its prevention in immigrants and their descendants – the fastest expanding proportion of the population in many European countries. Nearly half of the inhabitants of several large European cities, such as London, Berlin, or Amsterdam, and a rising proportion of many countries’ overall population, are immigrants or from an ethnic minority. However, this fact has been understudied in research and prevention of suicidal behavior. This volume addresses this gap. Leading experts describe rates and risk factors of suicidal behavior among immigrants and ethnic minorities, looking at high-risk groups such as female immigrants and refugees, as well as examining the role of cultural factors. They also show how epidemiology, theory, and other research findings can be translated into solid prevention and treatment programs.

In this remarkably clear and readable evaluation of the research on this topic, Barry Wagner presents the current state of knowledge about suicidal behaviors in children and adolescents, addressing the trends of the past ten years and evaluating available treatment approaches. Wagner provides an in-depth examination of the problem of suicidal behavior within the context of child and adolescent behavior. Among the developmental issues covered are the evolving capacity for emotional self-regulation, change and stresses in family, peer, and romantic relationships, and developing conceptions of time and death. He also provides an up-to-date review of the controversy surrounding the possible influence of antidepressant medications on suicidal behavior. Within the context of an integrative model of the suicide crisis, Wagner discusses issues pertaining to assessment, treatment, and prevention.
