Endorsements

An extremely readable book that offers detailed, practical advice. Designed for the practitioner, this book's recommendations are evidence based and are the culmination of many years of clinical experience. King has distinguished herself in the area of applied clinical research in adolescent suicidal behavior; the book reflects her and her coauthors' dedication to this field. Noteworthy features include key clinical points, sample dialogues, and reproducible assessment sheets that will ensure easy uptake of the most practical and important information. Another highlight is the clear description of how to implement a thorough safety plan. The authors spell out how their principles and practices can be applied in a variety of settings, including mental health clinics, primary care, and the schools.
-Anthony Spirito, PhD, ABPP,
Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Alpert Medical School of Brown University

This concise and well-organized volume provides very useful information in an easy-to-read, easy-to-access format. The authors emphasize the importance of paying attention to culture and present clinical approaches based on the best available research. Recognizing that many of us care for adolescents in settings where resources are extremely limited, they suggest practical ways professionals can make a critical difference in a young person's life while taking steps to manage their own liability. The book also offers innovative ideas to ensure that suicidal youth become partners in their own care. This book is a terrific asset for clinicians.
-David A. Litts, OD

Let's be honest - working with teenagers who evidence suicidal behavior raises the anxiety of any therapist, seasoned or not. King, Ewell Foster, and Rogalski are uniquely qualified to offer workable and effective strategies for practitioners. These experts provide sound guidance for each stage of the process, from assessing risk and managing safety plans to engaging support systems and providing the teen with realistic coping strategies. At last, we have a well-written and comprehensive resource that is a 'must have' for all therapists.
-Anne Marie Albano, PhD, ABPP,
Department of Psychiatry, Columbia UniversitY
