Handbook of Military and Veteran Suicide: Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention – eBook PDF
For the last decade, suicidal behavior in military and veteran populations has been a persistent feature in the media and in the news, with suicide rates among active-duty American military personnel reaching their highest level in about three decades. Handbook of Military and Veteran Suicide, (PDF) studies the most advanced scientific understanding of the phenomenon of active duty and veteran suicide while giving a useful, practical clinical guide for those working with this population.
This comprehensive Handbook includes all relevant topics and current research in suicide in military and veteran populations, including links between PTSD and suicide, the stigma of mental health treatment in the military, inspecting for firearms access in military and veteran populations, “subintentioned” suicide (e.g. irresponsible driving and other such “accidental” deaths), women in combat, and working with families. Chapters also include suicide risk assessment, evidence-based treatments for PTSD, traumatic brain injury, ethical issues in treating suicidal patients, and managing suicide in older veterans. Important issues that may arise in assessing and treating military and veteran populations who are at threat for suicide are presented and discussed with evidence-based and practical recommendations. This Handbook will benefit researchers, clinicians, and policymakers who work with active-duty military and veteran populations.
