This workbook is meant to teach general practitioners counselling skills to use with adolescents at risk of suicide. Role plays are used to illustrate 3 factors which can inhibit communications between doctor & patient: embarrassment, fear of consequences & time constraints. Active listening skills are reviewed. Information is provided on counselling the acutely suicidal adolescent. The last part of the workbook gives a suggested counselling strategy & discusses the use of no-suicide contracts.
