10 contributors to this book provided chapters on factors which increase suicide risk, the special problems that arise during a person’s treatment in the hospital or outside, treatment options & the importance of establishing a therapeutic “lifeline”. Pallis says, “trainees, as well as more experienced psychiatrists, will find this book useful. It contains sensible advice & offers an invitation to go further than the plain “management” or “disposal” of the suicidal.”
