Collins O P~~Jurich A P
This book review describes the book as well-organized & clearly presented. It provides a clear definition of the problem & keys to understanding causes, assessing risk, & developing strategies for intervention. Referencing is thorough & makes assessing specific information easy. Although authors of the book review would have liked more emphasis on a family systems approach to understanding adolescent suicide, they cinsider the book a useful contribution to the literature on this critical issue.
