Février 2013 - Quelques nouveaux livres sur le suicide


Pour vous abonner à notre liste d'envoi, complétez le formulaire en-ligne.

Bonjour à vous toutes et tous,
Elle est commencée, la 23e Semaine nationale de prévention du suicide. Sous le thème, « T’es important pour nous. Le suicide n’est pas une option », plusieurs activités auront lieu un peu partout dans la province pour sensibiliser la population sur la problématique du suicide ainsi que sur sa prévention.
D’ailleurs, nos membres Danielle St-Laurent et Mathieu Gagné de l’INSPQ viennent de rendre public les dernières données sur le suicide au Québec. En 2010, 1089 personnes se sont enlevées la vie au Québec. Suite aux efforts en prévention et en intervention, comme plusieurs projets de partenariat menés par le CRISE, le Québec ne détient plus la triste position de tête en cette matière au Canada. Fait encourageant également, les taux estimés en 2010 ramènent le Québec à des taux comparables aux années 1970. http://www.crise.ca/fr/pub_details.asp?no_pub=655&docu=publication&auteurp=St-Laurent%20Danielle&section=publications
Plusieurs d’entre vous seront heureux d’apprendre que le CRISE prépare sa deuxième saison de webinaires. Les thèmes abordés cette année seront l’intervention auprès des enfants suicidaires, le suicide en prison, le lien entre toxicomanie et le suicide ainsi que la détresse psychologique et le suicide en milieu agricole. Comme l’année dernière, ces webinaires seront offerts gratuitement. Surveillez nos envois et notre site web pour en savoir plus.
Nous préparons également notre 10 e Institut d’été qui se tiendra du 1 er au 3 mai 2013 à l’UQAM. Il portera sur les souffrances, l’euthanasie et le suicide assisté. Plus d’information suivront dans les semaines à venir.
Pour ceux qui désirent être au courant des activités du CRISE, je vous invite à nous suivre via notre nouveau compte Twitter (https://twitter.com/CRISE_FR).
Pour cette liste, nous avons inclus les nouveaux livres que le Centre de documentation s’est procuré lors des deux dernières années.
Bonne lecture

Caillard, V., & Chastang, F. (2010). Le geste suicidaire. Issy-les-Moulineaux, France: Masson.

Résumé: Le geste auto-agressif le plus apparemment ' bénin ' est un signal symptôme aussi important à percevoir que le geste suicidaire le plus élaboré. Il recouvre une réalité humaine complexe, parfois pathologique, toujours potentiellement mortifère. Le geste suicidaire revêt la signification d'un message qui s'est passé de mots mais représente aussi une histoire ou l'étape d'une histoire dramatique. Le geste suicidaire est un véritable trouble en soi, que l'on est en droit d'autonomiser grâce à une syndromique particulière (le syndrome présuicidaire), ses modalités d'installation et d'évolution (la crise suicidaire), sa psychopathologie déclinable selon diverses grilles de lecture, sa composante familiale, voire génétique, sa physiopathologie biologique, ses formes cliniques : aiguë, chronique, secondarité ou comorbidité avec d'autres troubles psychiatriques. Cet ouvrage clarifie tout d'abord les notions et présente l'épidémiologie ainsi que les déterminants biologiques, psychologiques et sociologiques. Une partie clinique expose les liens entre les conduites suicidaires et d'autres troubles : psychoses, troubles de l'humeur, troubles anxieux, troubles de la personnalité. Au sein de cette partie, les auteurs insistent particulièrement sur les populations spécifiques (adolescents, détenus, salariés) et les répétitions suicidaires. Enfin, la prise en charge est détaillée dans sa diversité, du médecin généraliste au service d'urgence : psychothérapies, traitements médicamenteux, importance de l'entourage et postvention. Un chapitre final se focalise sur la prévention du suicide en milieu professionnel. [Tiré de la quatrième de couverture]

Cyrulnik, B. (2011). Quand un enfant se donne "la mort". Attachement et société. Paris: Odile Jacob.

http://img.over-blog.com/197x300/4/04/44/26/Livres-05/quand-un-enfant-se-donne-la-mort.jpg Résumé : « Jusqu’à présent, personne n’avait osé aborder, voire effleurer cette triste réalité du suicide des enfants, préférant souvent la nier en la dissimulant au travers de jeux dits dangereux. Le suicide touche aussi les plus petits, les enfants, les préadolescents. Je suis convaincue que la lecture de ce livre remarquable permettra de sauver des vies. Je suis convaincue que ce travail est vital afin d’agir pour prévenir la souffrance des enfants qui, par désespoir, faute d’être entendus par les adultes, agissent de manière risquée jusqu’à l’accident fatal prévisible. Le travail inédit réalisé par Boris Cyrulnik à travers une approche pluridisciplinaire mêlant neurobiologie, biochimie, psychologie, sociologie et autres disciplines nous éclaire. Ce livre nous donne de l’espoir. Nous pouvons tous, dès à présent, être des acteurs de la prévention du suicide des enfants. L’amour, l’affection, les liens familiaux, l’écoute d’adultes constituent des protections efficaces. Je crois que le message le plus important de ce livre remarquable de Boris Cyrulnik, c’est que l’histoire n’est jamais écrite. » Jeannette Bougrab Secrétaire d’État chargée de la Jeunesse et de la Vie associative [Tiré de la quatrième de couverture]

 

Courtet, P. (Ed.). (2010). Suicides et tentatives de suicide. Paris: Médecine-Sciences Flammarion Éditions Lavoisier.

Résumé
: Le suicide est un problème majeur de santé publique. On compte en France annuellement 11 000 décès par suicide et 200 000 tentatives de suicide. Ce manuel fait le point des connaissances sur cette maladie qui, lorsqu'elle n'est pas létale, est lourde de conséquences physiques et psychologiques pour le suicidant et son entourage. Dans une première partie les données cliniques du phénomène sont exposées : épidémiologie, sociologie du suicide, définition des conduites suicidaires. Avec les axes de la recherche, la deuxième partie présente les travaux les plus actuels sur la vulnérabilité suicidaire : les avancées des neurosciences dans le domaine de la biologie ou de la génétique, l'impact des événements de vie et la modélisation du processus suicidaire. Les aspects stratégiques présentés dans la troisième partie orientent le thérapeute dans sa démarche clinique : évaluation du risque suicidaire, risque en fonction des pathologies (patients psychiatriques ou souffrant d'affections somatiques), du terrain (hommes, femmes, jeunes et adolescents, personnes âgées), de situation de vie particulières (immigration, milieu carcéral), etc.; prévention. La quatrième partie, consacrée aux aspects thérapeutiques, expose la problématique de la prise en charge des suicidants : la difficulté, l'urgence, le suivi. L'organisation et les structures de soins actuelles intègrent ces éléments incontournables afin d'intervenir efficacement auprès des personnes. La prise en charge passe également par les traitements médicamenteux, la psychothérapie… sans oublier le rôle de la société dans la prévention du suicide. L'ouvrage est destiné aux psychiatres, psychanalystes, psychologues et à tous les personnels soignants confrontés au problème de la prise en charge du suicide et de la tentative de suicide.

Aldridge, D., & Pérez Barrero, S. (2012). A Comprehensive Guide to Suicidal Behaviours: Working with Individuals at Risk and their Families London: Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

Résumé : Over a million people commit suicide worldwide every year. Taking an interdisciplinary approach that looks at the person at risk, the family and personal relationships they have and the communities in which they are embedded, this book will help anyone working with suicidal individuals to prevent this major cause of death. Backed up by research and clinical expertise the book clarifies the facts about suicide and debunks the many unfounded myths surrounding the subject. It covers the classifications and manifestations of suicide, as well as the major risk factors, at-risk groups and warning signs. Advice on effective communication and a repertoire of strategies for distress management are offered, not only for supporting at-risk individuals and those who have survived a suicide attempt, but also families coping with bereavement. A final chapter explores the impact of the internet and the digital age on both the propagation and prevention of suicide. This book will be essential reading for anybody working with people at risk of suicide, including clinicians, therapists, psychologists, social and healthcare workers and volunteers working in suicide prevention.

Nock, M. K., Borges, G., & Ono, Y. (Eds.). (2012). Suicide : Global Perspectives from the WHO World Mental Health Surveys. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press.

Résumé :Suicide is a serious public health problem worldwide, accounting for more loss of life annually than all forms of war and interpersonal violence combined. Despite this fact, suicide remains a poorly understood problem, and progress in understanding suicidal behavior around the globe has been slow. This book represents a major advance in our understanding by reporting the results of the largest, most representative study of suicidal behaviors conducted to date - the WHO World Mental Health Survey Initiative, interviewing more than 100,000 people from 21 countries on 6 continents. Previously unavailable data on the prevalence, onset, persistence, risk, protective factors and treatment of suicidal behaviors are presented and discussed, along with the implications of these findings. This volume provides valuable information for clinicians, scientists, policy-makers and anyone seeking to understand the occurrence of suicidal behavior worldwide.

Simon, R. I. (2011). Preventing Patient Suicide: Clinical Assessment and Management. Arlington, VA, US: American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc.

Résumé : Today’s psychiatrists practice in an environment that poses difficult challenges. Both treatment time and duration are limited by insurance requirements; many facilities are understaffed; split treatment arrangements are typical; and high-risk, acutely suicidal patients are admitted to inpatient units for short lengths of stay. In addition, law now plays a pervasive role in the practice of psychiatry. The doctor-patient relationship is no longer defined solely by the involved parties. Clinicians must juggle these requirements and limitations while providing the very best care to their patients, especially those at high risk. Preventing Patient Suicide: Clinical Assessment and Management provides the wisdom of Dr. Robert I. Simon’s vast clinical experience, combined with the latest insights from the evidence-based psychiatric literature, to offer a cutting-edge survey of suicide prevention and management techniques.

Lester, D., & Rogers, J. R. (2012) Crisis Intervention and Counseling by Telephone and the Internet (Third Edition). Springfield: Charles C. Thomas .

Résumé : This book will further stimulate interest and discussion of the telephone and the Internet as a mode of treatment. In this extensively revised third edition, a practical framework for providing immediate problem-solving assistance by telephone to persons in crisis is provided. Several new chapters have been added and several chapters have been updated and rewritten. The text offers specific techniques to deal with out-of-control situations with the highly important initial steps to protect the caller, the crisis worker, and the community. The scope of the book includes an overview of counseling by telephone, how to effectively manage crises, how to be supportive verbally and nonverbally, how to accurately assess situations, and how to help create a sense of stability. Part I discusses the varieties of telephone services, while Part II covers crisis intervention and counseling, including telephone therapy, active listening, cognitive therapy approaches, transactional analysis and learned helplessness approaches, as well as Gestalt therapy approaches. Part III discusses a variety of problem callers: the obscene caller, the chronic caller, the silent caller, the nuisance caller, and the “one counselor” caller. A new section, Part IV—Special Topics, includes valuable information on dealing with adolescents, war veterans, rural communities, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities on campus. Part V offers a look at contact beyond the telephone, including crisis intervention by e-mail and letter. Part VI views the roles of telephone counselors, such as the mental health professional, the nonprofessional crisis worker, selecting telephone counselors, and training crisis workers. Finally, Part VII summarizes and evaluates today’s telephone counseling services. This unique and up-to-date book serves as a comprehensive tool for those setting up telephone and Internet counseling services and those in charge of centers already operating, especially in training and supervising those on the front lines, the crisis interveners.

Fincham, B., Langer, S., Scourfield, J., & Shiner, M. (2011). Understanding Suicide: A Sociological Autopsy. New York, NY, US: Palgrave Macmillan.

Résumé : Suicide has an important place in the history of sociology, because of Durkheim's famous study and the debates that have followed since it was published more than a century ago. The sociological study of suicide remains a powerful illustration of competing paradigms. The bold aim of this book is to make a new contribution to this classic sociological debate. The authors highlight the importance of qualitatively-driven, mixed methods sociological research on individual suicides, coining the term 'sociological autopsy' to describe their ESRC-funded study of 100 suicide case files. They illustrate how qualitative and quantitative data can be combined; and navigate the dual paradigms of objectivism and constructionism, examining what can be known about suicidal lives and also taking a critical stance on the knowledge itself. Substantive themes developed in the book include the gendered character of suicidal behaviour, the role of the life-course and the importance of social bonds, especially intimate relationships.

Shrivastava, A., Kimbrell, M., & Lester, D. (Eds.). (2012). Suicide from a Global Perspective: Risk Assessment and Management. New York, US: Nova Science Publishers, Inc.

Résumé :Suicide is the cause of death for nearly one million people per year. Death by suicide is often reported as being due to other causes to avoid stigmatization and other negative consequences of suicide for the family. It can, therefore, be assumed that the number of people who commit suicide is in actuality much higher than the given number. Attempts at suicide, estimated to be ten times more frequent than completed suicide, often cause permanent impairment and disability. The loss of life caused by suicide presents a significant loss for the communities in which it occurs – socially, economically and by blocking progress towards the creation of a civic society. This book brings together current knowledge about suicide, its causes and its prevention, which is a useful tool for public health efforts and for clinicians’ daily work. The present volume focuses on assessing risk and treating suicidal patients.

 

 

Pompili, M., & Tatarelli, R. (Eds.). (2011). Evidence-Based Practice in Suicidology: A Source Book. Cambridge, MA, US: Hogrefe Publishing.

Résumé : Suicide rates have increased by 60% worldwide in the past 45 years, with deaths by suicide projected to reach 1.5 million by the year 2020. Despite millions being spent on suicide prevention activities, little is known about their effectiveness: As the US Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN) reported, “The single greatest obstacle to the effective prevention of suicide is the lack of evaluation research.” Evidence-based medicine involves the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients – which means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research. This substantive and authoritative volume shows for the first time how evidence-based approaches can be used in suicide prevention – as well as where evidence is lacking and how we might obtain it. Leading researchers and practitioners describe what really works in suicide prevention, the evidence for and against particular approaches, both in general terms (such as by means of hotlines, restriction of means, psychopharmocology) and for specific disorders (such as schizophrenia, personality disorder), and make specific recommendations about where we go from here.

Bryan, C. J., & Rudd, M. D. (2011). Managing Suicide Risk in Primary Care. New York: Springer Publishing Company.

Résumé : Roughly forty-five percent of individuals who commit suicide make contact with a primary medical provider in the month prior to their death; nearly twenty percent make contact within one day of their death. This practical guide demonstrates how the primary care setting-an increasingly important provider of mental health treatment-can be an effective place for preventing suicide and providing ameliorative care. Firmly grounded in the clinical realities of primary care, Bryan and Rudd address the key issues that often plague behavioral health consultants (BHCs) in such settings where appointments are brief, patient contact is limited, and decision making and treatment are collaborative. They offer effective strategies for BHCs to manage patients across a suicidal crisis beginning with the development of procedures prior to crisis, steps to take during a crisis, planning for post-crisis care, transition to specialty mental health facilities, and legal issues.

Chehil, S., & Kutcher, S. (2012). Suicide Risk Management: A Manual for Health Professionals: John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Résumé : Suicide Risk Management: A Manual for Health Professionals is a short, clearly written book that provides practical guidance on how to manage the suicidal or potentially suicidal patient. Written by two expert teachers, the book has been used in courses for trainee psychiatrists and for health professionals throughout the world. Feedback from participants on these courses has informed revision of the new edition. This book is of interest for all mental health professionals who come into contact with patients who present with suicide potential, i.e. all mental health professionals, as well as general health professionals who are often the first point of contact for a suicidal patient. The book opens with a review of the epidemiology, risk factors and associated aspects of suicide. It then presents two assessment tools: The Tool for Assessment of Suicide Risk (TASR) provides instruction on how to use it appropriately in the clinic. The Suicide Risk Assessment Guide (SRAG) acts as a self-study program to asess clinical evaluation skills. Both tools were created for use in the authors’ own practice and are now successfully taught to and used by health professionals around the world. Refined through actual experience, these proven tools help assess and evaluate patients with confidence. Case vignettes allow the reader to practice using the information they have learned from the book. Throughout the book, bulleted lists, tables and flowcharts effectively describe how to use the many factors to assess the risk of suicide in an individual patient.

Simon, R. I., & Hales, R. E. (Eds.). (2012). Textbook of Suicide Assessment and Management (second edition). Washington: American Psychiatric Publishing.

Résumé :This textbook seeks to provide information that is clinically useful for the mental health practitioner treating the patient at risk for suicide. The editors have enlisted recognized experts for each of the chapters, and to the extent possible, the authors rely on evidence-based medicine. To maintain a clinical focus, nearly all the chapters contain clinical cases, followed by a discussion that seeks to integrate the clinical finding with the material presented in the text, and each chapter ends with "Key Points" so that the reader will have a clear understanding as to what the chapter authors felt were the major learning objectives. The individual chapters in this textbook identify and address special clinical situations (such as suicide in children and the elderly, in incarcerated individuals, and in patients with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, substance use disorders, and so forth) in ways that prepare and fortify the clinician's assessment and treatment of patients with suicidal ideation or intent. Chapters on outpatient treatment, emergency treatment, inpatient treatment, safety interventions, somatic treatments, psychodynamic psychotherapeutic treatment, and other specialized therapeutic regimens inform the reader about optimal care of patients at risk for suicidal behavior. The primary goal for this book is to assist clinicians who daily face the often daunting, sometimes frustrating, and always worrisome task of clinical assessment and management of the patient at risk for suicide.

Colucci, E., & Lester, D. (Eds.). (2013). Suicide and Culture: Understanding the Context. Cambridge, MA, US: Hogrefe.

Résumé :The increasing domination of biological approaches in suicide research and prevention, at the expense of social and cultural understanding, is severely harming our ability to stop people dying – so run the clearly set out arguments and evidence in this lucid book by leading social scientists and suicide researchers. In the first part of this book, instead of simply comparing suicide in different countries, the authors review and examine the fundamental issues of why culture is of vital importance in understanding and preventing suicidal behavior, what the “cultural meaning” of suicide is, and where current research and theory are leading us. The second part of the book then presents (and, importantly, also critiques) exemplary recent research, including a quantitative and qualitative study on the meaning of suicide in Australia, India, and Italy, which is reported in detail, as well as other studies on correlates of suicidal behavior in Kuwait and the US, on a culturally specific form of suicide (sati), and on the role of cultural conflict in South Korea. In the concluding section, the editors highlight both the necessity and the challenges of conducting good culturally sensitive studies, as well as suggesting solutions to these challenges. This volume is thus essential reading for anyone involved in suicide research and prevention. [Tiré de la quatrième de couverture]

 

Whittington, R., & Logan, C. (Eds.). (2011). Self-Harm and Violence: Towards Best Practice in Managing Risk in Mental Health Services. Chichester, UK: Wiley-Blackwell.

Résumé : [This book] presents the first exploration of the most effective clinical practice techniques relating to the management of risk in mental health care settings: 1) Based on the Department of Health's Best Practice in Managing Risk guidance document, which was developed over a 12-month period in consultation with a national expert advisory group; 2) Features contributions from many members of the group that drew up the Best Practice document - all leading theoreticians and practitioners in their particular fields - and embeds the principles laid out in the guidelines in real world practice; 3) Reveals how contemporary risk management is a multidisciplinary and collaborative enterprise in which practitioners from different professions need to engage with each other in order to achieve success.

Worchel, D., & Gearing, R. E. (2010). Suicide Assessment and Treatment: Empirical and Evidence-Based Practices New York: Springer Publishing Company.

Résumé : Suicide is an event that cannot be ignored, minimized, or left untreated. However, all too often mental health professionals and health care practitioners are unprepared to treat suicidal clients. This text offers the latest guidance to frontline professionals who will likely encounter such clients throughout their careers, and to educators teaching future clinicians. The book discusses how to react when clients reveal suicidal thoughts; the components of comprehensive suicide assessments; evidence-based treatments such as crisis intervention, cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and more; and ethical and legal issues that may arise. Case studies, exercises, quizzes, and other features make this a must-have reference for graduate level courses

 

Cover, R. (2011). Queer Youth Suicide, Culture and Identity: Unliveable lives?. Farnham (UK): Ashgate.
Résumé: Despite increasing tolerance, legal protections against homophobia, and anti-discrimination policies throughout much of the western world, suicide attempts by queer youth remain relatively high. For over twenty years, research into queer youth suicide has debated reasons and risks, although it has also often reiterated assumptions about sexual identity and youth vulnerability.
Understanding the cultural context in which suicide becomes a necessary escape from living an unliveable life is the key to queer youth suicide prevention. This book uses cultural theory to outline some of the ways in which queer youth suicide is perceived in popular culture, media and research. It highlights how the ways in which we think about queer youth suicide have changed over time and some of the benefits and limitations of current thinking on the topic.
Focusing on identity, Queer Youth Suicide, Culture and Identity also investigates why queer young men continue to attempt suicide. Drawing on approaches from queer theory, cultural studies and sociology, it explores how sexual identity formation, sexual shame and discrepancies in community belonging and exclusions are implicated in the reasons why some queer youth are resilient while others are vulnerable and at risk of suicide. As such, it will appeal to scholars of sociology, media studies, queer theory and social theory with interests in youth, gender and sexuality, and suicidology.[tire du site web de l’éditeur: http://www.ashgate.com/]
