Summary
This book will serve as a first line of defense for the clinician. It provides information which, appropriately applied, can forestall most problems that can arise when a suicidal patient appears in a clinician's practice or in the hospital. The goal is to help the clinician treat a suicidal patient in a reasonable, sound practice with sophisticated management behaviors to optimize clinical care. B. Bongar's aim is not only to help the clinician to meet such problems, but also to point out that adherence to the principles of practice he describes in careful detail will minimize the risk and avoid the duress of legal involvement. More importantly, it will also improve the quality of care provided to patients and thus increase the potential for saving lives, which is the basic reason for the willingness of a mental health clinician to undertake a therapeutic alliance with a deeply troubled, emotionally distressed suicidal patient.
