Suicide is unique in that it offers an accessible overview of suicide. Written by Ronald M Holmes and Stephen T Holmes, two of the foremost authors of murder and violent crime books in the world, this book examines the social problem and criminal justice concerns of suicide from unique perspectives. The authors discuss the various forms of suicide and analyze the latest data on regional differences and how gender, marital status, occupation, health, drug use and religion all influence the practice of suicide.
Ronald Holmes and Stephen Holmes offer a unique text aimed primarily at criminal justice undergraduates, though other behavioral science students will find this work a helpful reference text, too. . . . What makes this work distinctive is its forensic science overlay, as the authors offer detailed coverage on suicide notes and methods.
Suicide rates are on the increase, online courses are availabke to raise wawareness, this book explains in detail how to react, deal and attend to people who are suicidal
A fascinating read, but perhaps not as comprehasnsive as needed for my course
Very helpful for students wanting a depth understanding - but not much for application of concepts in counselling and psychotherapy practice.
This book has been very useful in understanding the thought and behaviour processes behind suicide. A really interesting read. The learners found it very insightful and interesting.
A very unique text which will enable students studying criminal psychology to explore the complexities of suicide. Presented in a student friendly and comprehensive format.
