Summary
The problem of violence among youth has become increasingly serious. Issues related to adolescent suicide and, to a lesser extent, adolescent homicide have been addressed in the literature, yet few experts have focused on the connections that exist between the two. This groundbreaking volume examines the clinical and epidemiologic singularities and differences between youth suicide and homicide, offering valuable insights into both, and providing a foundation for the development of public health policies and prevention strategies. The authors address such questions as: What are the current rates of adolescent homicide and suicide? What are the long-term trends? What are the relationships between homicide and suicide? Is there more of a problem now than in years past? Is there a relationship between youth violence and the media? Who is most likely to commit suicide and/or homicide? What types of treatment and prevention strategies might prove most effective? This book reviews the relevant literature and presents new data from a range of international sources to provide an in-depth, comprehensive examination of youth violence. Epidemiologic patterns and demographic variables among adolescents in the United States are compared with trends in other countries. Using information gleaned from these long-term patterns, the authors present various approaches for the development of effective prevention and intervention strategies, and they explore the possibility of predicting longitudinal trends. Ideal for professionals in the various mental health fields, this book is also valuable for anyone working with the families of suicide and homicide victims
