This book focuses on suicidal behavior among children and adolescents. It describes the nature and problem of suicide and suicidal behavior, the theoretical models that explain suicide and nonfatal suicidal behavior, and examines research on the precursors, risk factors, causes, and clinical and preventive interventions that are helpful across a wide spectrum of suicidal youths.
