Suicide is a serious problem, hallmarked by complexity and ranked as a leading cause of death worldwide. International studies of suicide epidemiology show that suicide rates are generally greater in males than females and increase with age, with the elderly having the highest suicide rates (WHO, 2002). The prevention of suicide is, in part, contingent on the ability to identify individuals and populations at high risk and to offer prompt, effective interventions. However, evidence exists that suicidal individuals remain commonly undetected, rendering appropriate intervention unlikely. This encyclopedia presents important research on suicide.
Suicide is a perplexing human behavior that remains among the leading causes of death worldwide, responsible for more deaths each year than all wars, genocide, and homicide combined. Although suicide and other forms of self-injury have baffled scholars and clinicians for thousands of years,the past few decades have brought significant leaps in our understanding of these behaviors.This volume provides a comprehensive summary of the most important and exciting advances in our understanding of suicide and self-injury and our ability to predict and prevent it. Comprised of a formidable who's who in the field, the handbook covers the full spectrum of topics in suicide andself-injury across the lifespan, including the classification of different self-injurious behaviors, epidemiology, assessment techniques, and intervention. Chapters probe relevant issues in our society surrounding suicide, including assisted suicide and euthanasia, suicide terrorism, overlap betweensuicidal behavior and interpersonal violence, ethical considerations for suicide researchers, and current knowledge on survivors of suicide.The most comprehensive handbook on suicide and self-injury to date, this volume is a must-read text for graduate students, fellows, academic and research psychologists, and other researchers working in the brain and behavioral sciences.
