|Main Creator:||Doyle, Louise, 1975- author.|
"Suicide and self-harm are worldwide public health issues that can have devastating effects on families, friends, and communities. They are both a priority for anyone working in mental health, social work, emergency departments, and related fields. However, suicidal and self-harming behaviour can take place anywhere, any time. It may be a pupil in school, an inmate in a prison, or a colleague or family member.
For this reason, this book has been written in clear accessible and practical style for anyone who wants to learn more about working with and preventing suicidal and self-harming behaviour. It identifies common risk and protective factors, as well as specific warning signs of imminent suicidal behaviour. It provides essential communication skills for undertaking a risk assessment, illustrating how each skill can be used in real life practice. It looks specifically at the issue of self-harm and suicide in prisons, schools, and emergency departments. It lays out clear strategies for identifying and addressing issues of self-care when working with people who are suicidal or who self-harm. It identifies how we can assist those who are bereaved following the death of a loved one by suicide. Packed with learning outcomes, case scenarios, and reflective questions, this book acts as a toolkit for anyone working in this difficult field." -- Publisher
