MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Suicide Prevention Contracting: The Pitfalls, Perils, and Seven Safer Alternatives demonstrates that suicide prevention contracting, a widely adopted but little-understood form of suicide prevention, is almost wholly counterproductive and potentially dangerous for both patients and the clinician attempting to assist them. Edwards and Goj make a compelling case for this alarming pronouncement and offer seven alternative procedures.
