It is the hope that this review will be able to inform best practice in treatment and clinical research of these highly prevalent and burdensome disorders.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42019128535

   One of the most dangerous misconceptions about suicide is that asking a loved one if they are suicidal will increase the odds that they will attempt suicide.  Today Dr. Nate Ivers of Wake Forest University discusses the importance of making “the covert overt” by asking blunt, straightforward questions of those you suspect may be thinking about suicide.  What words should you use, and if the answer is yes, what should you do next?  And why are we so uncomfortable about asking these potentially lifesaving questions?

Conclusions: Several areas of PCAs' perceptions regarding late-life depression were discordant with the current scientific view, although their practice behaviors were largely consistent with the principles of evidence-based practice for depression. Specialized mental health training, a standard depression care protocol, and higher training standards are essential to mobilize the large number of PCAs to improve the mental health outcomes of hard-to-reach older adults.

Abstract Psychotherapy with suicidal patients is inherently challenging. Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses attention on the patient's internal experience through the creation of a therapeutic space for an open-ended exploration of thoughts, fears, and fantasies as they emerge through interactive dialogue with an empathic therapist. The Boston Suicide Study Group (M.S., M.J.G., E.R., B.H.), has developed an integrative psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy with suicidal patients based on the authors' extensive clinical work with suicidal patients (over 100 years combined). It is fundamentally psychodynamic in n...
