This book was written by two elementary school teachers who saw a need for children to understand that daily pressures can lead to feelings of hopelessness, which in turn can lead to suicide. The authors stress the importance of learning coping and communication skills, illustrating these techniques in case history form. An adolescent’s suicide is followed from the attempt through family therapy, where feelings are examined and coping and communication skills are demonstrated.(NBB)
