Very informative. It s great to have information focused on self-harming/suicidal behaviors in one place. It is easy to read and understand. I really like that it breaks down information and data by diagnosis and provides worksheets that the therapist can use in their practices to complete suicide assessments. It also includes worksheets to use with clients. I strongly recommend this book to therapists.
