“This book is indubitably a masterpiece and ought to benefit providers and patients alike....Those of us who, due to the nature of our practice or preference, can see the patients along the continuum—from inpatient to outpatient care—will gain a lot from this book.”

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry (on the first edition)


“User-friendly....This manual packs quite a wallop for a book so deceptively easy to read. It is a genuine advance in the state of the art and science of suicide prevention.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition)


“An essential addition to any clinician's repertoire of books, especially for those interested in working with depressed clients. The success of the CAMS framework and what sets it apart from other treatment approaches is the emphasis placed on understanding the broader, underlying issues at the core of the suicidal patient. Jobes provides an alternative approach instead of the traditional focus on suicidal ideation as a symptom of a broader psychopathology. Moreover, it is clear that Jobes speaks from a scientist-practitioner perspective as evidenced by his extensive knowledge and activity in suicide research as well as by his personal case examples. Jobes successfully provides the clinician with the light needed to help those individuals who have been trapped by the darkness of suicide.”

Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy (on the first edition)


“David Jobes, an expert in the field of suicidology, offers an innovative method of approaching...assessment, treating, and tracking outcomes with suicidal individuals....The text is likely to resonate with a wide variety of clinicians, from the novice to the expert with years of experience.”

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic (on the first edition)


“CAMS dramatically decreases suicidal ideation and overall symptom distress while increasing hope, patient satisfaction, and retention to clinical care.…We suicidologists believe suicidal people must be meaningfully understood, appreciated, and given particular skills to find their way in life. This book is a major contribution in this singular pursuit.”

—from the Foreword by Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington


“There are few books that I recommend hands-down as 'must reads' for all behavioral health clinicians—this is one of them. In this second edition, Jobes has succeeded in summarizing a prolific 30-year clinical research career in suicidology into a can’t-put-it-down, novel-like professional resource. The evidence-based CAMS approach in this book has saved lives and will continue to save the lives of patients at high risk for suicide.”

—Alan L. Peterson, PhD, ABPP, Aaron and Bobbie Elliott Krus Endowed Chair in Psychiatry, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio


“This book provides powerful, evidence-based tools for engaging patients and managing the situations that tend to unnerve clinicians the most. CAMS offers a way for clinician and patient to work as a team using the self-identified drivers of distress in the patient’s language. The approach is refreshingly patient-centered and collaborative—the way most clinicians wish they could work. It allows the clinician to be courageous, honest, and to relinquish the illusion of control, while having a potentially life-saving impact. Crossing any lines of theoretical orientation, CAMS can be readily implemented 'in the trenches.' I hope this fantastic book becomes a cornerstone in every clinical training program in the mental health disciplines.”

—Christine Moutier, MD, Chief Medical Officer, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention


“CAMS is a prominent feature of the clinical landscape of therapeutics for suicidality. The second edition of this manual is an eagerly awaited update that reflects significant research advances, making it an essential addition to the modern clinician's toolbox. CAMS is effective, and, crucially, it is well liked by both patients and clinicians. This book offers an articulate and practical account of a leading therapy.”

—Thomas Joiner, PhD, The Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University


“Jobes is one of the leading forces in suicide prevention, whose ideas and thinking have led to untold advances. The influence of CAMS can be seen within all of today's most established approaches to reducing suicidal behavior. Flipping through the well-worn pages of my copy of the first edition of Managing Suicidal Risk, I didn't think it would be possible to improve upon it. But true to form, Jobes has knocked it out of the park. This second edition synthesizes our rapidly expanding knowledge of safe and effective care for suicidal patients. It is an essential tool for any clinician.”

—Craig J. Bryan, PsyD, ABPP, Department of Psychology and National Center for Veterans Studies, University of Utah


“It is not uncommon for people who are considering suicide to interact with medical and/or mental health clinicians in the months leading up to an attempt. The CAMS framework provides a flexible and thorough structure for new and seasoned social workers to thoroughly assess and intervene with suicidal clients. By incorporating Managing Suicidal Risk, Second Edition, into our direct practice curriculum, it is my hope that all of our graduates will feel prepared to assess and treat suicidality.”

—Jonathan Kratz, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Assistant Professor, Anne and Henry Zarrow School of Social Work, University of Oklahoma
