First book review

Working with Suicidal Individuals
A Guide to Providing Understanding, Assessment and Support

The experience and competence of Tony White counselling suicidal clients is evident. He inspires confidence in others finding themselves working with such clients by his thorough analysis of suicide decisions, how to assess risk via a range of quantitative and qualitative tools, and how to contract effectively to support the client to live differently.

Contemporary research into suicide is combined with the classical and redecision traditions of transactional analysis theories to provide an underpinning map to orient professional thinking and actions. Additionally he shares his expertise in working with high risk groups of prisoners and adolescents, and also describes working with those who self-harm, to create a useful and necessary guide.'

  1. Fantastic review - well done you.

    I searched it on uk Amazon and I see it isnt released here until 15th December. As soon as it is I will rate it top stars and write a review. And buy it of course.


  2. Thank you Kahless.
    I look forward to your review.

    Yes Dec 15 has been stated as the release date but it is being printed right now so I don't know if that means it will come out earlier or not. We have to just wait and see
