about this item

Reflecting the very latest cutting-edge research in the field, The International Handbook of Suicide Prevention, 2nd edition, considers the complex array of individual and societal factors that can lead to suicide, explores the various ways in which these factors may be mitigated, and presents the most up-to-date evidence for effective suicide prevention approaches. Contributions from leading authorities in the field consider suicide from epidemiological, psychological, clinical, sociological, and neurobiological perspectives, providing the clearest picture yet of worldwide patterns of suicide and explicating some of the key theoretical frameworks put forward to explain them.
