Description

Product Description

The Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) approach has garnered a strong evidence base and has been implemented by therapists from a range of orientations in diverse clinical settings. This extensively revised manual provides a proven therapeutic framework for evaluating suicidal risk and developing and implementing a suicide-specific treatment plan that is respectful, empathic, and empowering. In addition to their clinical utility, the procedures used for assessment, treatment, and progress monitoring within CAMS can help reduce the risk of malpractice liability. In a large-size format for easy photocopying, the book includes all needed reproducible tools for implementing CAMS. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials. For CAMS training opportunities with David A. Jobes, visit www.cams-care.com.

Review

"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 Emeritus, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington; developer of DBT

"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, Krus Endowed Chair in Psychiatry; Director, STRONG STAR Consortium; and Director, Consortium to Alleviate PTSD, University of Texas Health Care 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, Executive Director, 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


" Managing Suicidal Risk: A Collaborative Approach, Second Edition, provides a thorough introduction to the use of the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicide (CAMS) protocol. Experienced clinicians might easily incorporate the SSF-4 and associated CAMS materials into their practice with suicidal patients. Reproducible Suicide Status Forms and other CAMS materials are provided in the manual….A complete case example featuring one of Jobes’s own former patients is interwoven throughout the manual….Provides a clear and flexible framework for the treatment of suicidal behavior in outpatient settings. Jobes offers an evidence-based treatment framework which was seemingly co-authored with his many patient-survivors of suicide over years of research and treatment. The manual provides important updates to the first edition which have resulted from rigorous evaluation of the CAMS model. With research support for CAMS growing, the second edition of Managing Suicidal Risk: A Collaborative Approach may become a relied-upon reference in the toolkit of clinicians and allied professionals who serve suicidal patients.”
Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy Published On: 2017-06-26

"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." (on the first edition)
Journal of Clinical Psychiatry Published On: 2008-05-01

"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." (on the first edition)
PsycCRITIQUES Published On: 2007-07-01

"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." (on the first edition)
Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy Published On: 2008-12-01

"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." (on the first edition)
Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic Published On: 2008-12-01

This is a good book to have as an adjunct to the CAMS training (although not required). It provides context, research and in depth explanations of this intervention, as well as clinical examples. The only complaint I have; in the parts that include clinician scripts/suggested language, the speaking/reading level is way above the accessible fifth grade level suitable for most of the population I work with. I would suggest simplified language in future editions.

The material gives me confidence to work with, and more importantly collaborate with, suicidal clients. It''s a very client centered approach which is easy to replicate with high fidelity in practice.

After attending a conference with Dr. Jones, I bought this book and have utilized it''s methodology and documentation work sheets with a 15 year old boy who had just been discharged from a week''s stay at the hospital for suicidal ideation and behavior. It proved highly effective and the best possible way to track elements of risk, while also working toward the relevant goals for choosing to live. This was masterful and research based practice addressing risk to suicide specifically, while including a collaborative stabilization plan.

I was so excited to get my second edition of this book. The first edition was an awesome learning experience for me and I did not believe it could be improved upon. Yet, Dr. Jobes has taken it to another level! His voice in the book is eloquent and reads as if he was sitting right there with you. This amazing intervention has many decades of research supporting it and should be in every clinician’s repertoire of evidenced based interventions. CAMS’s collaborative approach allows the patient and therapist to communicate honestly and openly without fear. CAMS is comprehensive and easy to learn! I encourage all who work in the helping field to purchase this book and attend Dr. Jobes training’s… it has saved and will continue to save many lives in the future.
