About the Authors
  • In an epoch when rates of death and illness among the young have steadily decreased in the face of medical progress, the persistently high rates of youth suicide and suicide attempts around the world remain a tragic irony and a challenge to both our clinical practice and theoretical understanding. How can these deaths be prevented? Can they be anticipated? Are there perceptible patterns of risk and vulnerability? What role do families, gender, culture, and biology play? What are the treatments for and outcomes of suicide attempters? To address these questions, experts from around the world in all areas of psychiatry, from epidemiology, neurobiology, genetics and psychotherapy, have brought together their current findings in Suicide in Children and Adolescents.

    • Focused uniquely on deaths by suicide of children and adolescents
    • Written by an international team of experts from all the relevant areas of psychiatry, from epidemiology to neurobiology
    • Looks at prevention and treatment outcomes for suicide attempters

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book moves beyond the traditional approach of viewing suicide as a diagnostic feature of depression, personality disorder or other diagnostic category … There are several clinically orientated chapters, which I would recommend anyone assessing potentially suicidal children to read … each chapter provides an authoritative account of the current literature, which is generally well appraised and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has any contact with suicidal youth …'. Psychological Medicine

    'The authors have a wonderful way of making sense out of the complex interplay of biopsychosocial and psychodynamic forces that lead youth to end their lives. The topics of suicide evaluation and prevention are immensely helpful and very thorough …'. Doody's

    'Knowledge is expanding rapidly in child and adolescent psychiatry and in suicidology alike. This new book summarizes and discusses the latest development in the field.' European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
