The Suicidal Crisis is the first book to help clinicians evaluate the risk of imminent suicidal behavior. What sets the Suicidal Crisis apart is its clinical focus on those at the highest risk. The text contains sixty individual case studies of acutely suicidal individuals, detailed instructions on how to conduct risk assessments, and test cases with answer keys. Another unique feature is a discussion of how clinicians' emotional responses to acutely suicidal individuals may help identify those at highest risk.
