Description

In Adolescent Boys Who Are Suicidal, David A. Jobes demonstrates his integrative, problem-solving approach to working with male adolescents who have contemplated or attempted suicide. Preliminary research suggests that although men and male adolescents are more likely to complete suicide compared to females, there is evidence to suggest clinical success if they are engaged in treatment. Dr. Jobes's approach emphasizes the importance of a strong alliance with the client and working to inspire the client's motivation to pursue psychological and behavioral change.

In this session, Dr. Jobes works with a high school-aged boy who seriously considers suicide as an attractive option for escaping problems in his life. Through the course of this session, the teen becomes more hopeful and begins to formulate some sense of his life in the future.
