Suicide Prevention from the Author: Robert D. Goldney. Suicide claims approximately one million lives worldwide each year, but it is increasingly recognized that there are ways in which some of this loss of life can be prevented. Part of the Oxford Psychiatry Library, the second edition of Suicide Prevention places suicide in an historical and contemporaneous context, noting how interpretations of its causes and prevention have changed over the years. This comprehensive but concise pocketbook provides healthcare professionals with an appreciation of the subtle relationship between illness and biological factors, and their interaction with society. The text covers the methodological challenges of demonstrating the effectiveness of intervention due to the low base rate of suicide, and summarizes the latest innovative research, giving practitioners a firm knowledge base in a range of management options which can confidently be utilised for those who are suicidal. Suicide Prevention focuses both on the individual, where specific non-pharmacological as well as medication treatments can be utilised, and on the broader community approaches which can be pursued, ensuring that this practical text is relevant to a broad range of professionals working in the field of suicide prevention.

Preventing Suicide from the Author: Karen Mason. 12th Annual Outreach Resource of the Year (Counseling) What is the church's role in suicide prevention? While we tend to view the work of suicide prevention as the task of professional therapists and doctors, the church can also play a vital role. Studies show that religious faith is an important factor reducing the risk of suicide. Yet many pastors, chaplains and pastoral counselors feel overwhelmed and unprepared to prevent suicides. In this practical handbook, psychologist Karen Mason equips ministry professionals to work with suicidal individuals. Integrating theology and psychology, she shows how pastoral caregivers can be agents of hope, teaching the significance of life, monitoring those at risk and intervening when they need help. Because church leaders are often present in people's lives in seasons of trouble and times of crisis, they can provide comfort in the midst of suffering and offer guidance for the future. When our church members struggle in the darkness, the darkness need not overcome them. Discover how you and your church can be proactive in caring for those at risk of self-harm.
