Relational Suicide Assessment: Risks, Resources, and Possibilities for Safety
Department of Family Therapy
A relational approach to evaluating your suicidal clients.
Moving beyond the traditional paper-and-pencil self-report, this book offers therapists a new approach to suicide assessment. Guided by a relational understanding of the therapeutic process, it emphasizes a semi-structured interview process and collaborative conversations to explore a client’s strengths and resilience as well as risk factors.
