Book Description :

Suicide is an event that cannot be ignored, minimized, or left untreated. However, all too often mental health professionals and health care practitioners are unprepared to treat suicidal clients. This text offers the latest guidance to frontline professionals who will likely encounter such clients throughout their careers, and to educators teaching future clinicians. The book discusses how to react when clients reveal suicidal thoughts; the components of comprehensive suicide assessments; evidence-based treatments such as crisis intervention, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and more; and ethical and legal issues that may arise. Case studies, exercises, quizzes, and other features make this a must-have reference for graduate level courses. Key topics: Risk and identification of suicidal behaviors across the lifespan (children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly) The links between suicidality and mental illness (psychotic disorders, mood disorders, and substance abuse) Suicide risk among special populations (military personnel, LGBTQ individuals, the homeless, and more) A model for crisis intervention with suicidal individuals

Book Description :

Background: In 2001, the U. S. Department of Health and Huan Services, National Strategy for Suicide Prevention, provided the first national program for suicide prevention and its specific call for evidence based practice to guide school based suicide prevention plans. In the 2013, the Utah legislature passed HB 154, Youth Suicide Prevention, requiring school districts and charter schools to implement a youth suicide prevention program for students in grades 7-12. School districts and charter schools shall require each licensed employee to complete two hours of professional development on youth suicide prevention within their license cycle. Evidence Based Practice Framework:The evidence based practice (EBP) model chosen for this scholarly project was the Rosswurm and Larrabee model. The model was selected to guide the process for change to evidence-based practice. The model represents principles of quality improvement, utilization of team-work, and evidence-based translation strategies to promote adoption of a new practice. The model is valuable in the systematic process of integrating evidence into practice at the individual level and served as the best evidence based practice model to provide structure for this project. Methods: The objective of this project was to offer and implementing a training program at a Utah high school that does not currently have a suicide prevention program in place. The project will be evaluated using a pre and post evaluation provided by the Question, Persuade, Refer, Gatekeeper representative. The pre and post evaluation measures the knowledge gained from the workshop. Findings/Results: Ten participants attended the training. The evaluation showed that all ten participants demonstrated an increase in knowledge, favorable attitudes, awareness, and help seeing behavior s following participation in this suicide prevention program. Conclusion/Recommendations: Teaching faculty, staff, and parents an EBP suicide prevention training has shown an increase in confidence to approach and identify a suicidal student. The training has been successful throughout many Utah high schools. It is recommended to combine the QPR Gatekeeper and Hope4Utah high schools. It is recommended to combine the QPR Gatekeeper and Hope4Utah programs due to both programs large success in schools.

This progressive reference redefines qualitative research as a crucial component of evidence-based practice and assesses its current and future impact on healthcare. Its introductory section explains the value of sociocultural context in case conceptualization, and ways this evidence can be integrated with quantitative findings to inform and transform practice. The bulk of the book's chapters review qualitative research in diverse areas, including pain, trauma, heart disease, COPD, and disabling conditions, and examine ways of effectively evaluating and applying qualitative data. This seismic shift in perception moves the healing professions away from traditional one-size-fits-all thinking and toward responsive, patient-centered care. Among the topics in the Handbook: ·Examining qualitative alternatives to categorical representation. ·The World Health Organization model of health: what evidence is needed? ·Qualitative research in mental health and mental illness. ·Qualitative evidence in pediatrics. ·The contribution of qualitative research to medication adherence. ·Qualitative evidence in health policy analysis.

Book Description :

The goal of this book is to explore the phenomenon of suicide, focusing on males who are at a greater risk than females. Scholars and mental health professionals continue to have the tendency to ignore men and focus instead on the more narrow demographic groups. Attention is drawn to the lack of help-seeking behavior exhibited by men as well as the numerous recommendations for the prevention of male suicide. The issues specific to male suicide includes the atypical nature of male depression, the role of loneliness, drug and alcohol abuse, the male hormone (testosterone), and men’s preferred method for suicide (guns). Suicide in specific groups of men, including male athletes, soldiers, mass and serial murderers, suicide bombers, murder-suicides, and famous creative men, is discussed in great detail. In addition, the text explores the many and varied reasons for suicide in gay men and in ethnic minorities. The invited contributors provide a cross-cultural viewpoint with essays on male suicide in Australia, China, Ghana, Palestine, and Uganda. Two examples are given for potential programs that appear to be effective for men: Mates in Construction which was designed to help construction workers in Australia, and Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) training. The book concludes with discussions of how to prevent suicide in men, a group known to deny the existence of personal problems and is reluctant to seek help. With three illustrations and 19 tables, this book will be an excellent resource for crisis interveners, researchers, counseling centers, mental health professionals, and human service providers.

Book Description :

Though schools have become the default mental health providers for children and adolescents, they are poorly equipped to meet the mental health needs of their students. Evidence-Based Practice in School Mental Health differs from other books that address child and adolescent psychopathology by focusing on how to help students with mental disorders in pre-K-12th-grade schools. Chapters address the prevalence of a disorder in school-age populations, appropriate diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, comorbid disorders, available rapid assessment instruments, school-based interventions using multi-tiered systems of support, and easy-to-follow suggestions for progress monitoring. Additionally, the text shares detailed suggestions for how school-based clinicians can collaborate with teachers, parents, and community providers to address the needs of youth with mental health problems. Each chapter finishes with extensive web resources and real-life case examples drawn from the author's clinical practice. This book serves as a helpful resource for school-based mental health providers (e.g., school social workers, school psychologists, and school counselors), communities-in-schools coordinators, and MSW students focusing on child and adolescent mental health.

GET BOOK

Book Description :

The goal of this book is to fully explore what the author refers to as 'the near epidemic levels of suicide and homicide-suicide' among law enforcement officers, and ultimately to offer recommendations and best practices with which to better address the problem. The book begins by discussing suicide in some depth, for one has to know suicide, unequivocally, to understand a suicidal or homicidal-suicidal officer. Suicide and homicide-suicide are complex, multi-determined events - the result of an interplay of individual, relational, social, cultural and environmental factors. The complexity of causation necessitates a parallel complexity of knowledge. There are at least two avenues to understanding: the nomothetic (general) approach, which deals with generalizations using empirical, statistical and demographic methods or techniques; and the idiographic (specific) approach, which typically involves the intense study of individuals. This book explores both. Attempting to be mindful of the needs of the office on the street, the mental health provider, the administrator, the forensic specialist, and the survivors of these needless tragedies, the belief is that by amalgamating the concerns of a diverse audience, we can meet the challenge of identifying at-risk individuals and situations, and saving lives.

Book Description :

The best way to grasp the essence of death scene investigation (DSI) is to witness its application, called the psychological autopsy, by an expert forensic scientist/clinician. This remarkable book affords the opportunity to delve into the challenges that the forensic mental health specialist and public safety professional confront in DSI. Suicides, and often death, are complex, multidetermined events. People, whether police investigators or mental health professionals, are generally perplexed, and even confused, when they are confronted by the equivocal case. Was it a suicide? Homicide? Accident? These are critical questions. Dr. Leenaars shows that DSI is, however, not mysterious; the reader can learn the generally accepted, evidence-based protocols of the psychological autopsy. Illuminated by individual (idiographic) case studies and general (nomothetic) research, this definitive guide allows the investigator to uncover the bare bones of a suicide or death.

Book Description :

Evidence-Based Treatment Approaches for Suicidal Adolescents: Translating Science Into Practice combines state-of-the-art research and treatment development with clinical descriptions of evidence-based and evidence-informed treatment strategies for adolescents struggling with suicidality and self-harm. The book provides important information on clinical approaches that have shown promise in reducing the risk of suicide attempts and self-harm in teens and preventing the tragedy of premature death by suicide. Following two chapters on risk assessment and safety planning, six chapters present different approaches to psychosocial treatment. Although some approaches share common theoretical roots, and most address similar targets and mechanisms (e.g., restricting access to lethal means of self-harm, enhancing family support and functioning, and strengthening emotion regulation), each treatment modality has important differences and distinct strengths. The book's final chapter addresses pharmacological strategies for managing and treating suicidality. This combination of information on risk assessment and management, safety planning, psychosocial treatment, and pharmacologic treatment reflects the perspective that psychosocial and biologically based risk and protective factors are increasingly recognized as crucial for improving the mental health of and outcomes for adolescents and their families. The volume's many useful features include the following: * The book is user-friendly. Each treatment chapter follows a common structure: overview, theoretical model, review of current empirical evidence, primary treatment components and intervention strategies, case example, recommendations for implementing the approach in practice, resources for obtaining training, and suggested readings. Readers can easily find relevant information and compare treatment approaches.* The book is practice friendly. By offering a review of existing evidence-based treatments for at-risk adolescents in one accessible volume, the book makes it easier for clinicians to learn about current findings in the field and to choose between existing approaches. Moreover, the clinically rich chapters contain case examples and suggestions for implementing each treatment into practice across a range of settings. * The book is pragmatic. Recognizing that clinicians attempting to implement these promising treatments in community practice with limited resources may encounter challenges, the authors include a table at the end of each treatment chapter describing elements that may more easily be put into practice when implementation of the full treatment protocol is not feasible.* The book emphasizes risk assessment and safety. Risk and protective factors are explored in-depth, as are strategies for enhancing safety. These strategies are relatively straightforward, but they have the enormous potential to save lives. An indispensable resource not only for clinicians working across diverse practice settings, Evidence-Based Treatment Approaches for Suicidal Adolescents: Translating Science Into Practice will also prove valuable to policy makers, health and behavioral health system leaders, and researchers engaged in the critically important work of reducing suicide among adolescents.

In Critical Suicidology, a team of international scholars, practitioners, and people directly affected by suicide argue that the field of suicidology has become too focused on the biomedical paradigm: a model that pathologizes distress and obscures the social, political, and historical contexts that contribute to human suffering. The authors take a critical look at existing research, introduce the perspectives of those who have direct personal knowledge of suicide and suicidal behaviour, and propose alternative approaches that are creative and culturally sensitive. In the right hands, this book could save lives.

Book Description :

This book will help the reader to understand the suicidal mind from a phenomenological point of view, shedding light on the feelings of suicidal individuals and also those of clinicians. In accordance with the importance that the phenomenological approach attaches to subjectivity and sense of self as the starting points for knowledge, emphasis is placed on the need for the clinician to focus on the subjective experiences of the at-risk individual, to set aside prior assumptions, judgments, or interpretations, and to identify ways of bridging gaps in communication associated with negative emotions. The vital importance of empathy is stressed, drawing attention to the insights offered by neuroimaging studies and the role of mirror neurons in social cognition. It is widely acknowledged that when a clinician meets a person who wants to die by suicide, the clinician does not fully understand what is going on inside the mind of that individual. This book recognizes that any approach to suicide prevention must promote understanding of suicidal thoughts and feelings. The awareness that it fosters and the innovative perspectives that it presents will appeal to a wide readership.
