Book Description :

This book explores suicide prevention perspectives from around the world, considering both professionals’ points of view as well as first-person accounts from suicidal individuals. Scholars around the globe have puzzled over what makes a person suicidal and what is in the minds of those individuals who die by suicide. Most often the focus is not on the motives for suicide, nor on the phenomenology of this act, but on what is found from small cohorts of suicidal individuals. This book offers a tentative synthesis of a complex phenomenon, and sheds some light on models of suicide that are less frequently encountered in the literature. Written by international experts, it makes a valuable contribution to the field of suicidology that appeals to a wide readership, from mental health professionals to researchers in suicidology and students.

Book Description :

Today's psychiatrists practice in an environment that poses difficult challenges. Both treatment time and duration are limited by insurance requirements; many facilities are understaffed; split treatment arrangements are typical; and high-risk, acutely suicidal patients are admitted to inpatient units for short lengths of stay. In addition, law now plays a pervasive role in the practice of psychiatry. The doctor-patient relationship is no longer defined solely by the involved parties. Clinicians must juggle these requirements and limitations while providing the very best care to their patients, especially those at high risk. Preventing Patient Suicide: Clinical Assessment and Management provides the wisdom of Dr. Robert I. Simon's vast clinical experience, combined with the latest insights from the evidence-based psychiatric literature, to offer a cutting-edge survey of suicide prevention and management techniques. The author: Addresses sudden improvement in high-risk suicidal patients, a phenomenon both common and perilous, with techniques for determining whether the improvement is real or feigned. Explores in depth the misuse of suicide risk assessment forms, with emphasis on their inherent limitations. Examines the many entrenched myths and traditions about suicide, exposing them to the critical light of evidence-based medicine, including the concept of "imminent suicide risk" and the myth of "passive suicide ideation". Discusses the continuum of chronic and acute high-risk suicidal patients, the fluidity with which one can become the other, and the difficulty in assessing these patients. Explores how the law and psychiatry interact in frequently occurring clinical situations, and the importance of therapeutic risk management. In addition, the book contains a variety of features that illuminate the subject and enhance the reader's understanding, including: Inclusion of illustrative case studies, combined with commentary on commonly occurring but complex clinical situations. Key points at the end of each chapter that identify critical information. A Suicide Risk Assessment Self-Test, a teaching instrument that consists of fifty questions designed to enhance clinician suicide risk assessment by incorporating evidence-based risk and protective factors. Dr. Simon provides a nuanced, empathic, yet pragmatic perspective on identifying, assessing, and managing the suicidal patient while successfully navigating a complex legal and clinical environment that poses its own risks to the practitioner.

Book Description :

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among adolescents and young adults (Centers for Disease Control [CDC], 2011). However, no evidence-based suicide prevention programs currently exist that utilize formative assessment measures to screen for individuals deemed at-risk (National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices [NREPP], n.d.). Given that timely intervention may prevent premature death, there is a dire need to create a direct, formative measure to account for the time-sensitive nature of the data. Glover and Albers (2007) suggest that universal screening measures should be feasible, contextually appropriate, and technically adequate. Borrowing from the literature base of school-based behavior assessment, a widely used, formative measure known as Direct Behavior Rating (DBR; Chafouleas, Riley-Tillman, & McDougal, 2002) was adapted to create a formative suicide risk assessment measure, known as the Direct Behavior Risk Rating (DBRR). The DBRR is a no-cost, 5-item measure that is designed to identify students at-risk for engaging in suicidal activity. The present study tested the hypotheses that DBRRs demonstrate concurrent validity with regard to the Beck Scale for Suicidal Ideation (BSI; Hypothesis 1), demonstrate overall classification accuracy with regard to BSI risk status (Hypothesis 2), and identify cut scores associated with optimal conditional probability statistics (Hypothesis 3). Compared to single DBRR items, the DBRR-Multiple Item Scale (DBRR-MIS) demonstrated a moderate to strong correlation with the BSI and appropriate discriminatory power when modeled against the BSI as the criterion, respectively. Adequate cut scores were identified for the DBRR-MIS for potential differentiation of risk status. However, as the purpose of a screening measurement tool is to achieve an optimal percentage of correct decisions (i.e., true positives & true negatives), results of receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analyses indicated that the DBRR-MIS displays a disproportionate balance among probability statistics (i.e., positive predictive power & negative predictive power), resulting in over-identification of those at risk. Given that limited resources often thwart screening implementation in educational settings, further research is needed to improve the technical adequacy of the DBRR. Initial findings indicate that, upon continued examination, the DBRR-MIS may be an innovative method of assessing suicide risk among the student population.

"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
