Child and Adolescent Suicidal Behavior

Miller guides readers to understand, screen, and assess for suicide risk in students in grades K-12.

The book also shows how to develop a coordinated plan for postvention in the aftermath of a suicide, offering specific dos and don'ts for supporting students, parents, and school personnel. User-friendly tools include reproducible handouts; the book's large-size format facilitates photocopying.
