'Counseling Suicidal Clients' by Andrew Reeves

Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC (March 1, 2010)- Counselling Suicidal Clients by Andrew Reeves, from University of Liverpool Counselling Service, is a new title for counselling practitioners published today by SAGE. This title addresses the important professional considerations when working with clients who are suicidal. It covers work on the 'bigger picture', including legal and ethical considerations and organisational policy and procedures, including how practitioners can work with the dynamics of suicide potential in the therapeutic process.

The book is divided into six main parts:

  • The changing context of suicide
  • The prediction-prevention model, policy and ethics
  • The influence of the organisation
  • The client process
  • The practitioner process
  • The practice of counselling with suicidal clients.

The book also contains chapters on the discourse of suicide, suicide and self-injury, and self-care for the counsellor. It is written for counsellors and psychotherapists, and for any professional who uses counselling skills when supporting suicidal people.
