Product Description

Review

The book is a good addition to the library of anyone interested in the broad topic of cultural psychiatry. It reminds us that the importance of culture and ethnicity is not only to be seen in the context of symptom expression, or even in that of prevalence of disorders, but in the equally important context of how and why we often respond or fail to respond to psychotropic drugs. ( The British Journal of Psychiatry , March 2010)

From the Author

This book, which is a how-to-do text, contains ideas, tools & techniques which are simple to understand and apply. It is a life-saving instructional handbook, intended for all who come into contact with depressed and/or suicidal people.
In addition to being a practitioner's handbook, it is essential reading for both tutors and students on counselling and therapy courses.
I have written it as a radical alternative to the traditional risk assessment & management and medication approach; and throughout, from the gathering body or practice-based evidence. I have provided many good examples of lives saved.

Colleagues and workshop students I have been teaching over the past 10 years or so, have implored me to commit to print, all the many tools, techniques, principles, assumptions and ideas around this particular approach. This is so that the benefits may be experienced worldwide. I am most pleased with the result.

- John Henden, (Author) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By B. Winbolt on 26 July 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a first; a book on how to intervene effectively with people who are seriously considering suicide, and a much needed addition to the Solution Focused literature. It can be used by both professionals, and individuals who may be contemplating suicide, their friends and family members.
In the introduction John says:
"Much has been written about the subject of suicide, but little on the specific 'how-to-do' or 'what-works' in the 1:1 relationship between the worker and suicidal person. This book concentrates on how lives are saved; what workers do and say that is effective, and what clients have said they found helpful."
John's successes in this area speak for themselves. Over the past 15 years spent developing his ideas, many healthcare professionals and former clients have come forward to attest to the value of his approach. And more importantly, many lives have been saved.

I am so pleased I bought this book after attending training on solution focussed therapy in Northamptonshire . Having read the book I feel more confident to work with people contemplating suicide . The way in which the book is written makes it so simple and easy to read and understand. I have found the illustrations and techniques extremely effective . Wonderful stuff. I love it.

An excellent read: so easy to follow and understand. No psychobabble or jargon, so the reader can coast through, learning about the many useful techniques along the way.

Arrived in good time. The Author explains techniques in an easy to understand way. Some ideas are new and some are well known, but well worth reading.
