The authors of this chapter note that although there is a rich & scholarly literature on sociological, psychological & biological aspects of suicide, there is a scarcity of studies on the development & evaluation of programs for treatment & prevention. Throughout the article, they argue that from a scientific point of view, the prevention of suicidal behavior is still in its infancy. (69 refs)
