Description : This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. This book is based on a three year qualitative study (a study that was funded by the United Kingdom Department of Health) that investigated how psychiatric nurses provided care for suicidal people. Drawing on service user data, this book contains and explains an evidence-based (empirically induced) theory of how to care for suicidal people. Far from being an esoteric theory with no clinical applicability, the findings captured in this book are grounded in the reality of day-to-day practice. Furthermore, in addition to tracing the role of nurses in caring for suicidal people, the authors use their findings to launch into formal level issues regarding future research, education and policy; as well as focusing on the ethical issues involved in care of the suicidal person. The authors close by shifting the focus on 'suicide survivors' and with the help of contributing aithors. As the eminent suicidology scholars who have generously provided their Forewords note - this is a must-read book for anyone involved in the care of the suicidal person.

Description : Suicide remains all too common in the United States. As the ninth leading cause of death -- responsible for 30,000 deaths annually -- it is also one of the more preventable causes of death Increasingly, mental health clinicians must care for suicidal patients within managed care systems. Managed care's cost-driven focus on rapid assessment and triage, narrowly restrictive hospital admission criteria, and abbreviated inpatient stays have resulted in poorer clinical care and increased opportunities both for adverse outcomes such as suicide and for clinician liability. Bringing together a unique mix of clinicians, authorities, and administrators from private practice and managed care, Treatment of Suicidal Patients in Managed Care offers practical guidance on how to improve care and reduce risk for suicidal patients. Contributors explore a wide range of topics: Hospitalization -- Emphasizes the increased importance of the initial assessment when managed care systems shorten or deny hospitalization for suicidal patients and of knowing whom to call within the managed care system. Includes alternative programs from acute residential care to cognitive-behavioral strategies and dialectical behavior therapy for the suicidal patient in crisis Suicide risk among adolescents and the elderly -- For adolescents, emphasizes the value of multiple levels of care when admissions are too short and too often followed by distressing and costly readmissions. For the elderly, offers preventive interventions for primary care physicians who are uncomfortable discussing depression and suicidal ideation and intention with their elderly patients Suicide and substance abuse -- Details the role of case managers in providing continuity of care in a disorder known to be chronic and relapsing Pharmacotherapy of depression and suicidality -- Discusses the effects of managed care and raises questions about the expertise of the prescriber, especially relevant now that more primary care physicians are treating patients with uncomplicated unipolar depression Risk management issues -- To counter the perception that managed care companies profit from withholding care, emphasizes the crucial importance today of documenting the reasons for treatment decisions Helping those affected by the aftermath of a suicide -- A step-by-step process: 1) anticipating a suicide, 2) announcing or sharing the news of a suicide, 3) assessing those affected by a suicide, and 4) seeing what can be learned from reviewing the patient's treatment This clinical guide will aid understanding of clinical, administrative, and risk management issues relevant to the care of suicidal patients. Psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse clinical specialists, social workers, administrators, and primary care physicians will also rely on it as they cope with the mounting pressures of managed care while maintaining the quality of their care for these vulnerable and patients.

Description : Each year almost 30,000 individuals take their own lives, making suicide the eighth leading cause of death in the United States. The data on completed suicide become all the more disturbing when one considers that completed suicides represent only a small percentage of the number of attempts; that suicide may be statistically underreported; and that the rates of suicide in many industrialized countries are increasing. Suicide has likewise been found to be the most frequently encountered emergency situation for mental health professionals, with clinicians consistently ranking work with suicidal patients as the most stressful of all clinical endeavors. Combining the clinical experience and practical recommendations of some of the world's foremost authorities on suicidal and life-threatening behaviors, Suicide: Guidelines for Assessment, Management, and Treatment is designed to fill the current gaps in the training efforts of the mental health and health care disciplines in the area of working with suicidal patients. The chapters are constructed as modules that cover a specific topic in a basic curriculum on suicidology, and include workable practice guidelines that are both essential and up-to-date. Topics include theories of suicide; epidemiology of suicide; biological research; understanding child and youth suicide and suicide among the elderly; procedures for detection of high-risk factors; emergency room care; hospitalization and its alternatives; psychopharmacological treatments; psychological assessment; cognitive and psychodynamic approaches to working with suicidal patients; training and supervision of mental health professionals in the study of suicide; postvention, malpractice and risk management; and forensic issues in suicidology. By bringing together in one landmark volume the cumulative clinical wisdom of many of the pre-eminent experts in suicidology, this book for the first time provides the practitioner and practitioner-in-training with a set of clear and useful guidelines for working with the suicidal patient in clinical practice. As such, it will have broad appeal to psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and other mental health professionals, as well as to primary care physicians, nurses and other health care professionals

Description : here are over 38,000 suicide deaths each year in the United States alone, and the numbers in other countries suggest that suicide is a major public health problem around the world. A suicide leaves behind more victims than just the individual, as family, friends, co-workers, and the community can be impacted in many different and unique ways following a suicide. And yet there are very few professional resources that provide the necessary background, research, and tools to effectively work with the survivors of a suicide. This edited volume addresses the need for an up-to-date, professionally-oriented summary of the clinical and research literature on the impact of suicide bereavement on survivors. It is geared towards mental health professionals, grief counselors, clergy, and others who work with survivors in a professional capacity. Topics covered include the impact of suicide on survivors, interventions to provide bereavement care for survivors, examples of promising support programs for survivors, and developing a research, clinical, and programmatic agenda for survivors over the next 5 years and beyond.

Description : How does the law define "reasonable care" in the treatment of suicidal patients? What are the most clinically and legally appropriate procedures for evaluating and managing suicide risks? And what forms of precautionary planning and documentation are recommended for minimizing the likelihood of malpractice actions? Drawing upon years of clinical experience as well as extensive malpractice claims data and relevant case law, this book outlines effective assessment, management, and treatment procedures that balance the need for high-quality care with the requirements of court-determined and statutory standards. Three widely cited papers on standards of care are accompanied by four new chapters on clinical and legal risk management and issues surrounding pharmacotherapy. Offering frank, balanced coverage of an extremely challenging clinical situation, Risk Management with Suicidal Patients helps psychologists, psychiatrists, and other practitioners develop their own clinically and legally informed strategies for providing the best possible care. It is also an invaluable resource for legal professionals, and may serve as a text in psychology and psychiatry ethics courses and courses on mental health law.

Description : "This book has tremendous value for three audiences embroiled in or potentially subject to these kinds of courtroom disputes: mental health professionals who evaluate and treat persons at risk for suicidal behavior, institutions (clinics, hospitals, jails, prisons) that manage suicide risk, and attorneys in suicide-related disputes. The contents of this book address the nexus of (a) U.S. laws bearing on culpability for suicidal behavior, (b) the standards of care for various health professionals and institutions that assess or treat suicidal patients, and (c) the empirical knowledge that does or does not exist about predicting suicidal behavior and managing suicide risk. You may pick up this book to learn what the health and corrections fields themselves expect their workers to know and do in the face of suicide risk; to interpret the related expectations, duties, responsibilities, and standards of care; to formulate the "crimes of commission and omission" (Murphy, 1975a, 1975b) that a health professional or institution would be wise to avoid; or to understand how U.S. court findings have parsed responsibility for suicidal deaths. It is no coincidence that the first edition of this book was published in 1991 at a time when empirical study of suicidal behavior was advancing from adolescence into early adulthood. The first empirical clinical studies of suicidal behavior, the community-based "psychological autopsy" studies of completed suicide by Robins and colleagues conducted in St. Louis during the 1950s (Robins, Gassner, Kayes, Wilkinson, & Murphy, 1959; Robins, Murphy, Wilkinson, Gassner, & Kayes, 1959), began a process of testing handed-down clinical wisdom and revealing its folklore like qualities. Since that time, a substantial body of well-designed, well-controlled studies-reviewed thoughtfully in this book-have continued to challenge the chestnuts of "clinical experience" and "received wisdom" and have turned many truisms on their heads. For example, we now know that at least half of those who die by suicide had never made a previous attempt. Death by suicide is rare unless a major psychiatric disorder is one contributing factor. Persons under the most severe life stress, defined objectively or subjectively, are not the ones at greatest risk for suicide, when analysis controls for the most significant risk factors. In the one large-enough prospective study of completed suicide, expert assessment of suicidal thoughts or plans did not distinguish between depressed inpatients who killed themselves soon afterward and those who lived on. Some clinicians, institutions, attorneys, and expert witnesses have not yet crossed the watershed separating untested wisdom and personal experience from the modern empirically based clinical standards for assessing and managing suicide risk, as reviewed in this book. The single-case psychological autopsy, for example, is a shibboleth based on the idea that an expert with unique experiences can divine the "inner truth" of a decedent and the circumstances of his or her death. This book poses the meaningful alternative: the possibility of a dispassionate, penetrating "root cause analysis" based on scientific evidence. For decades, suicide has been and continues to be the 11th leading cause of death in the United States. Suicide is uncomfortable to talk about, and many prefer to sweep the topic under the rug; but suicide remains a serious public health problem. This third edition of The Suicidal Patient by Bruce Bongar and Glenn Sullivan will prove to be an essential and vital resource for clinicians, supervisors, attorney, and clinicians in training"--Foreword.

Description : "Primary care is the new frontier for preventing suicide and Bryan and Rudd are its pioneers, offering wisdom and guidance based on their experience in bridging behavioral health care to the primary health care setting. This is a truly significant reference." Lanny Berman, PhD, ABPP Executive Director, American Association of Suicidology President, International Association for Suicide Prevention "In their pragmatic and useful book titled Managing Suicide Risk in Primary Care, Bryan and Rudd provide an essential reference guide for health care professionals working in primary care settings."--PsycCRITIQUES "This book offers a comprehensive approach that can help the physician become competent to assess and intervene with suicidal risk as well as lessen his or her anxiety when dealing with patients at suicide risk. Needless to say, this can be a life and death matter for some patients... One of the great strengths of this book is how they have adapted insights and interventions from traditional mental health care for the uniqueness of primary care... I highly recommend this book for any professional working in primary care. It will be taken off the shelf for reference and reviewed many times in the course of a career."--Family Medicine Journal Roughly forty-five percent of individuals who commit suicide make contact with a primary medical provider in the month prior to their death; nearly twenty percent make contact within one day of their death. This practical guide demonstrates how the primary care setting-an increasingly important provider of mental health treatment-can be an effective place for preventing suicide and providing ameliorative care. Firmly grounded in the clinical realities of primary care, Bryan and Rudd address the key issues that often plague behavioral health consultants (BHCs) in such settings where appointments are brief, patient contact is limited, and decision making and treatment are collaborative. They offer effective strategies for BHCs to manage patients across a suicidal crisis beginning with the development of procedures prior to crisis, steps to take during a crisis, planning for post-crisis care, transition to specialty mental health facilities, and legal issues. Key Features: Targets techniques for suicide assessment and prevention in primary care settings Addresses the clinical realities of working in a primary care setting and how to adapt them to the needs of suicidal patients Covers clinical protocols, legal issues, and risk management Discusses the formation of collaborative relationships with patients and staff Provides brief interventions with suicidal patients and post-crisis strategies Written by leading specialists in behavioral health, primary care, and suicidology

Description : The book is an attempt to make sense of suicide related behaviour in terms of understanding its aetiology and how practitioners can respond in a caring and therapeutic manner. The last 30 years the data gathered has consistently indicated that suicide is a leading cause of death in young people especially men. Alongside this, the incidence of self harm, which has always been high, does not seem to be abating. Some professionals argue that attempted suicide and self harm are both the same entity. This book puts forward that they are two sides of the same coin and this coin is called suicide-related behaviour. This is a general term used in the book to describe all behaviours where the person intended to kill or harm themselves. In doing so relevant issues within the phenomenon of suicide-related behaviour and specific to both self harm and attempted suicide will be explored and addressed.

Description : Parents can have a key role in supporting you that risk of suicide and may be able to help reduce their child’s future suicide risk. There is little research exploring parents’ experiences of caring for a young person at risk of suicide in New Zealand. This exploratory study reports on parents’ experiences of caring for a young person a risk of suicide and their experiences with the services supporting their child. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 13New Zealand parents of suicidal young people. The interviews were transcribed and analysed using thematic analysis. Parents described feeling emotionally overwhelmed, powerless and responsible. They described not taking time for themselves, walking on tiptoes, and finding it difficult to talk about if people had not been through similar experiences. They also spoke about building strengths growing and learning. The second part of the analysis focused on parents’ discussions of the services supporting their child. Parents found it difficult to get the help they wanted for their child and felt they were on the outside. They wanted professionals to give greater recognition to their role in their child’s recovery. These findings suggest ways in which mental health professionals could more effectively relate to parents of young people at risk of suicide. The findings emphasize the need for compassion and sensitivity to parents’ emotional needs, and the importance of collaboration between all of those supporting the young person’s wellbeing.

Description : Approximately one million people worldwide commit suicide each year, and at least ten times as many attempt suicide. A considerable number of these people are in contact with members of the healthcare sector, and encounters with suicidal individuals form a common part of the everyday work of many healthcare professionals. Suicide: An unnecessary death examines the pharmacological, psychotherapeutic, and psychosocial measures adopted by psychiatrists, GPs, and other health-care staff, and emphasizes the need for a clearer psychodynamic understanding of the self if patients are to be successfully recognized, diagnosed, and treated. Drawing on the latest research by leading international experts in the field of suicidology, this new edition provides clinicians with an accessible summary of the latest research into suicide and its prevention. The abundance of new literature can make it difficult for those whose clinical practice involves daily contact with suicidal patients to devote sufficient time to penetrating the research and, accordingly, apply new findings in their clinical practice. In light of the WHO Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020, this new edition is a timely contribution to the field, and a vital and rapid overview, that will increase awareness of suicide prevention methods.

Description : This book provides a comprehensive review of the complex, growing mental health challenges faced by culturally diverse populations of children and adolescents.Suicide Among Diverse Youth: A Case-Based Guidebook is the first book of its kind, and is designed specifically to bridge the knowledge and skills gap encountered by most clinicians dealing with youth from diverse cultural backgrounds, particularly those different than that of the clinician. The title begins with two introductory chapters, which cover cultural aspects of suicidality among youth, culturally informed treatment of suicidality with diverse youth, and examples of preventative approaches. These are followed by population specific chapters which cover a broad spectrum of diverse populations, including underserved ethnic and racial populations in the United States, LGBTQ youth, as well as various immigrant populations from Eastern European and Middle Eastern countries. These case-based chapters are structured in a cohesive, easy-to-read format that promotes ease of reference, beginning with a clinical case report, review of literature, unique characteristics and risk factors associated with suicidality, and evidence-based practice provided by the authors from their considerable experience. The authors are often from the same ethnic, racial, or cultural group that they discuss in their writings; providing experiential knowledge where scientific knowledge is lacking. Suicide Among Diverse Youth: A Case-Based Guidebook is a unique resource that offers the clinical material needed to treat diverse adolescent patients with sensitive, intersectional, and culturally-informed care, and will provide an indispensable resource for medical professionals working with, and caring for these patients.
