This summarized paper reviews the successful use of cognitive therapy, social-skills training, & problem-solving therapy with suicidal youth, & discusses the possible application of parent-child communication training & instruction in anger control. Cognitive therapy effects a change in negative thought patterns; social-skills training is based on the premise that depression is associated with poor social skills; & problem-solving therapy provides training in a more generic set of skills.
