264 participants in this study were randomly assigned to either the experimental treatment or the control condition (i.e. treatment as usual). Both groups evidenced significant improvement across all outcome measures. Reductions were reported in suicidal ideation & behaviour, associated symptomatology & experienced stress, along with marked improvement in self-appraised problem-solving ability. Available data demonstrate the efficacy of a time-limited, outpatient intervention. (59 refs.)
