Considering not only suicidal and risk-taking behavior, this work also covers related disorders such as depression, conduct problems, and substance abuse that often precede suicide and risk-taking. The material, presented in a structured way, allows the reader to follow the logical progression from a wide literature base. This permits a more specific examination of cognitive deficits (in problem solving and decision making) of the adolescents who engage in suicidal and risk-taking behaviors.
