This ground breaking volume examines the clinical and epidemiologic similarities and differences between youth suicide and homicide, offering valuable insights into both issues, and providing a foundation for the development of public health policies and prevention strategies. This book reviews the relevant literature and presents new data from a range of international sources to provide an in-depth, comprehensive examination of youth violence. The authors present various approaches for the development of effective prevention and intervention strategies, and they explore the possibility of predicting longitudinal trends.
