Year: 1992 Source: Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v.22, no.3, (Fall 1992), p.407-408 SIEC No: 19920491

The reviewer found one of the strengths of this book to be “the use of the case method”, a technique usually employed in business & law. Each chapter in the book presents case material, followed by discussion by three experts, who were “selected … with great care”. The reviewer hopes that this volume will be the first in an ongoing series of case studies, and “that future volumes will employ this same method to explore other thorny & poorly understood issues in suicide prevention”.
