Author: David L. Conroy

"Out of the Nightmare" presents a no-fault theory about depression and suicide. It argues that we should not blame the victim, the family, the caregivers, or society in general. It provides a detailed analysis of each of the barriers that stand between suicidal pain and recovery, and provides those who suffer from depression with hundreds of resources to find their way out of the nightmare. Recovery from depression is decomposed into recovery from envy, shame, self-pity, grandiosity, fear, stigma, prejudice, and the vicious circles of sucidal pain. The book helps sufferers find lasting relief from internalized negative self-judgments.

Suicide as a Cultural Institution in Dostoevsky's Russia

Suicide as a Cultural Institution in Dostoevsky's Russia Lowest new price: $115.54
Lowest used price: $13.97
List price: $54.95
Author: Irina Paperno
Brand: Brand: Cornell Univ Pr

In the popular and scientific imagination, suicide has always been an enigmatic act that defies, and yet demands, explanation. Throughout the centuries, philosophers and writers, journalists and scientists have attempted to endow this act with meaning. In the nineteenth century, and especially in Russia, suicide became the focus for discussion of such issues as the immortality of the soul, free will and determinism, the physical and the spiritual, the individual and the social. Analyzing a variety of sources―medical reports, social treatises, legal codes, newspaper articles, fiction, private documents left by suicides―Irina Paperno describes the search for the meaning of suicide. Paperno focuses on Russia of the 1860s–1880s, when suicide was at the center of public attention.

Suicide in America

Suicide in America Lowest new price: $9.95
Lowest used price: $2.33
Author: Herbert Hendin

In this new edition of his acclaimed work, Dr. Herbert Hendin casts new light on the problem of suicide, offering what he calls a "psychosocial perspective." Demonstrating that treatment of seriously suicidal people is possible, he also shows how our social policy toward suicide is marked by misconception. He evaluates the "right-to-die" movement, and in a comprehensive new chapter he presents a powerful portrait of euthanasia and assisted suicide in the Netherlands. Interviews with the leading practitioners and proponents are included. This book has much to say not only about how we die but also about how we choose to live.

Suicide: Closing the Exits

Suicide: Closing the Exits Lowest used price: $46.00
List price: $99.00
Author: Ronald V. Clarke

This book reports a program of research concerned with the possibility of as guns, drugs, preventing suicide by restricting access to lethal agents, such and carbon monoxide. To many people, it may seem implausible that deeply unhappy people could be prevented from killing themselves by "closing the exits, " but the suggestion is by no means a new one and has been current in the journals for some time. This book is the first major exposition of the idea, however, with the evidence collected in one place and an examination of the implications for understanding the suicidal person and for preventing suicide. We hope to convince public health officials that, although the idea is largely disregarded at present, restricting access to lethal agents should take its place as a major preventive strategy along with the psychiatric treatment of depressed and suicidal individuals and the establishment of suicide pre­ in communities to counsel those who are suicidal or in crisis. vention centers We came to this position by two different routes. R. c. 's interest derived from a concern with the role of opportunity in crime. This originated in his doctoral research dealing, not with suicide, but with another form of escape-absconding from training schools for young offenders. He found that the variance in absconding was explained more by the opportunities to abscond presented by the school's environment and regime than by the offender's history or personality.
