Article Abstract

Because this piece has no abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

Treating Suicidal Behavior: An Effective, Time-Limited Approach is a well-written, thorough, and comprehensive review of an important topic. While providing more information than many primary care providers may be willing to review or are able to utilize, the authors appear to make a conscious effort to present the contents of this volume as accessibly as possible by thoughtfully dividing the text into 2 major sections.

The first section, “Establishing a Foundation for Treatment,” contains 3 chapters that review the literature related to suicidality, present an overview of cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT),and summarize the treatment process.

Some JCP and PCC articles are available in PDF format only. Please click the PDF link at the top of this page to access the full text.
