The reviewer states that “this book provides a thorough framework for understanding factors surrounding adolescent suicide and for working with suicidal adolescents and their families to resolve maladaptive recursive cycles that hold the suicidal ideation in place.”. The author is said to blend research, practice, & developmental concepts of adolescence into a well-balanced integrative approach that would be helpful to clinicians at any level. (3 refs.)
