The Assessment And Management of Suicidality (Practitioner's Resource)

The Assessment And Management of Suicidality (Practitioner's Resource) Lowest new price: $17.95

Author: M. David Rudd

Suicide risk assessment has become a routine task among clinicians working in outpatient settings. As inpatient alternatives have slowly dwindled and lengths of stay have decreased dramatically over the past two decades, it has become increasingly important that mental health practitioners be well informed about, and comfortable with, assessing suicide risk and managing those at-risk in outpatient settings. There is little doubt that those in clinical practice will see suicidal patients even if they are not identified as working in the specialty area. It is difficult, if not impossible, to so tightly control the patient flow to prevent these individuals from appearing through routine referral channels. Since the author had yet to find a brief, thorough, and easily accessible clinical guide to suidice risk assessment, one that clinicians of all stripes could review in a short time frame, he wrote this book to fill that gap in the literature.

The Best Way to Say Goodbye: A Legal Peaceful Choice At the End of Life

The Best Way to Say Goodbye: A Legal Peaceful Choice At the End of Life Lowest new price: $11.35
Lowest used price: $4.60
List price: $30.00
Author: Stanley A. Terman
Brand: Brand: Life Transitions Publications

What are our two greatest end-of-life fears? To endure unnecessary prolonged pain and suffering, and merely to exist in a state of total indignity and dependency such as in Alzheimer's dementia. Uninformed, some people add layers of tragedy to their destiny. Some choose to die prematurely; others, violently; a few risk imprisonment by mercy killing. Often their lament is, If only Physician-Assisted Suicide were legal. Yet there is an alternative that is already legal: Voluntary Refusal of Food & Fluid. While sometimes intentionally maligned as barbaric starvation, ceasing all Food & Fluid is a truly peaceful way to hasten dying by dehydration. While taking an average of 14 days, it allows for the exchange of healing goodbyes with loved ones who can forever be sure it was these patients' intent since they could have changed their mind.
What makes the process peaceful? Knowing how to control thirst. (The author went on two fasts himself to learn what works.) In addition, good discussions with family members before beginning. Consistent with the principles of some religions, this method is available even for patients who are physically too sick to put a lethal dose of medication in their mouths and swallow.
By creating strategically effective documents for a trusted agent or proxy to withhold Food & Fluid on the patient's behalf, this way to Permit Natural Dying can actually extend the quality of life of those with early dementia. They can enjoy living until they reach a point they have previously described in behavioral terms (perhaps with help from using one of the book's forms).
Beyond serving as an authoritative source of information to strive for an ironclad strategy for dementia, the book endorses life's most ironic fact: When people know they can control when they die--they can, and often do--choose to live longer.
Poignant memoirs illustrate its practical guidelines and useful forms; for example, why Proxy Directives are more effective than Living Wills, and how to make Living Wills work better if they are the only available choice.
The book-within-a-book format of this book is as unique as its content is comprehensive. Over 300 citations, an index, a glossary, and further resources... yet its core reading is user-friendly for all. The subject matter is lightened by 22 cartoons and humorous stories; deepened by provocative discussions of the secular meaning of Sanctity of Life ; and broadened by considering the emotional, practical, clinical, legal, moral, ethical, religious, spiritual, and political aspects of a subject that will affect absolutely everyone.

Author: Jeffrey S. Black

Suicide is profoundly tragic. What depth of unbearable pain and hopelessness suicidal people experience. And when a Christian commits or contemplates suicide, it is both tragic and confusing.

Jeffrey Black tells us that the intention to commit suicide is a crisis--a sinful act born out of pain and sorrow. Though promised new life in Christ and a living hope, some believers don't keep their eyes focused on these truths. God has the power to help.

Here we learn the signs of suicide and guidelines for intervening when someone appears suicidal.

There are 26 other helpful booklets in the Resources for Changing Lives series.

Author: John M. Violanti

In this second edition of Police Suicide: Epidemic in Blue, the author brings together 'old and new' information on police suicide and he introduces some promising findings. In doing so, he clarifies some issues and provides a source of information for police officers, administrators, and academic researchers. In this lucidly written book of ten chapters, Doctor Violanti discusses the classical studies in suicide, the accuracy and validity of police suicide rates, probable precipitating factors associated with police suicide, the impact of retirement, the idea of 'suicide by suspect,' the antecedents of murder-suicide, the plight of survivors of police suicide, and information and suggestions for police suicide prevention. Also discussed is the relationship between suicide and the reluctance of police officers to seek professional help. Suggestions are made for police suicide prevention that include intervention programs and suicide awareness training. The author stresses that the first and most important step in preventing suicide is to recognize the problem. It is hoped that this new edition will provide an additional resource to help prevent these deaths.

Life After Suicide

Life After Suicide Lowest new price: $17.90
Lowest used price: $3.59
List price: $27.95
Author: E. Betsy Ross

Life after Suicide: A Ray of Hope for Those Left Behind begins with personal and often painful journeys into the scarred psyches of people who lost a loved one to suicide. When the author's husband killed himself, she had a choice: either hide behind denial or tackle her grief head-on. Beginning with her own story of unfinished personal affairs, Ms. Ross also includes accounts of others who have struggled with recurring feelings of abandonment, rejection, and stigma while moving forward to stages of healing and restoration of faith in themselves. She then describes the dynamics of after-suicide bereavement and gives specific suggestions for helping survivors, children, and others. The author also discusses the ethical debate over suicide as a sin, widowhood by suicide, the delicate responsibilities of the coroner or police, and the importance of support groups. Ms. Ross presents her own reflections on suicide in moral, philosophical, and social terms - and the impact of the dysfunctional family - and explores possible influencing factors for both the act of suicide and society's attitude. Backed by years of research and her extensive work with survivors and support groups, this is a valuable guide for recovering from grief, offering useful information for both survivors and those who work with them. Capped by a comprehensive grief and postvention resource guide, Life after Suicide stands as an important resource for libraries, crisis centers, funeral homes, hospices, and other caregiving organizations.
