The reviewer states that this book aims to provide a clinical guide to the assessment, treatment & prevention of suicidal behaviour from an integrative theoretical perspective – the suicidal process approach. This approach seeks to examine suicide across a developmental process, integrating persistent vulnerability factors, at both a psychological & a biological level, & examining their relationship over time with chronic & acute stress in order to better understand suicidal behaviour.
