Dr. William Hom discusses what is new & current in assessment & treatment of suicidal behavior. He presents 2 brief case histories, one an attemptyed suicide & the other a completed suicide, to demonstrate factors that predispose an individual to suicide & to highlight the fact that there is still much to be learned about self-destructive behavior. Intervention & treatment strategies are examined. Drug therapy, with both well-known & newer antidepressant drugs, is discussed. (NBB)
