Suicide is a perplexing human behavior that remains among the leading causes of death worldwide, responsible for more deaths each year than all wars, genocide, and homicide combined. Although suicide and other forms of self-injury have baffled scholars and clinicians for thousands of years, the past few decades have brought significant leaps in our understanding of these behaviors.

When community and family support systems are weak or unavailable, and when internal resources fail, populations that struggle with chronic, persistent, acute, and/or unexpected problems become vulnerable to physical, cognitive, emotional, and social deterioration. Yet despite numerous risk factors, a large number of vulnerable people do live happy and productive lives. This best-selling handbook examines not only risk and vulnerability factors in disadvantaged populations but also resilience and protective strategies for managing and overcoming adversity. This third edition reflects new demographic data, research findings, and theoretical developments and accounts for changing economic and political realities, including immigration and health care policy reforms. Contributors have expanded their essays to include practice with individuals, families, and groups, and new chapters consider working with military members and their families, victims and survivors of terrorism and torture, bullied children, and young men of color.

Zahlreiche Jugendliche probieren es einmal aus, aber es gibt auch einige, die sich regelmäßig über Wochen, Monate oder Jahre hinweg selbst verletzen. Die häufigste Absicht, die mit diesem Verhalten einhergeht, ist die Reduktion von unangenehmen Emotionen. Ziel des Leitfadens ist es, aktuelle Ergebnisse zur Symptomatik, Diagnostik, Therapie und Prävention zu vermitteln. Kernstück des Leitfadens sind die Leitlinien zur Diagnostik und Behandlung von Nichtsuizidalem Selbstverletzendem Verhalten. Die Leitlinien zur Diagnostik beschreiben die Exploration des Patienten, der Symptomatik und störungsrelevanter Faktoren. Zudem werden Hinweise zur körperlichen Untersuchung, zur Differenzialdiagnostik sowie zur Verlaufskontrolle und Qualitätssicherung gegeben. Auf Basis der aktuellen Therapieforschung erläutern die Leitlinien zur Therapie das konkrete Vorgehen beim Erstkontakt und bei der Akutbehandlung, Möglichkeiten der Weiterversorgung sowie das psychotherapeutische und pharmakologische Vorgehen. Des Weiteren wird auf das Therapiesetting, die Elternarbeit und die Zusammenarbeit mit Schule, Jugendhilfe und Sozialarbeit eingegangen.
