(from the preface) Suicide is a complex human behavior that remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Although suicidal behavior 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 behavior. 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 behavior, and ultimately die by suicide; the state of the field with regard to evidence-based intervention, prevention, and postvention strategies; and special consideration in conceptualizing, assessing, and treating/preventing suicidal behavior in demographically and clinically diverse populations. The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the science on this significant public health issue, resulting in a unique resource intended for graduate students, researchers, clinicians, and professionals who may encounter issues relating to suicide on a regular basis.
