"If you're seeking a comprehensive understanding of bullying and youth suicide-and detailed presentation of exemplary prevention and intervention programs-this is it. This book addresses all levels of the biopsychosocial model with exquisite rigor and clarity. It will serve as a guiding light in the fields of psychology, education, and public health." --Robert-Jay Green, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Clinical Psychology PhD Program, and Founder and Senior Research Fellow, Rockway Institute for LGBT Psychology & Public Policy, California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, San Francisco
"This book is a masterful and timely review of our current understanding of the complex links between bullying and suicide and a 'must read' for both scholars and practitioners who deal with these challenges. The chapters are comprehensive in coverage and broad in scope, with efforts to understand the links between bullying and suicide for both perpetrators and victims. The authors provide a critical review of the empirical research to date and consider multiple theoretical models for understanding the mechanisms underlying the identified links between bullying and suicide; the book also addresses both implications and applications for critical stakeholders, with particular focus on education and public health. This volume provides readers with an in-depth understanding of what we know and what we don't yet understand about how bullying can lead to suicide, informing both research and practice in the field." --Shelley Hymel, PhD, Professor, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia
"As one of the leading causes of death among young people, youth suicide is a serious public health problem, and the association of bullying with youth suicide is of growing interest. As a child and adolescent psychiatry trainee, I particularly appreciated the detailed literature review of the relationship between bullying and youth suicide, the discussions of the various models of suicide, and recommendations for mental health providers in most of the chapters. This book is likely to be most helpful for individuals working with schools, communities, research, or institutions involved in the assessment, intervention, and other developments involving bullying." --Soo Lee, PsycCRITIQUES
