Full Book Title: Making Peace with Suicide: A Book of Hope, Understanding and Comfort
Author Name: Adele Ryan McDowell, Ph.D.
Book Synopsis: Making Peace with Suicide provides a comprehensive and compassionate look at the world-wide phenomena of suicide. The book is designed for those who have lost a loved one to suicide; those considering suicide; and those who work with or counsel the bereaved and the suicidal. Making Peace with Suicide analyzes the factors and circumstances that can lead to suicide and offers an intimate view of suicide through personal stories and coping strategies from both survivors of suicidal loss as well as the unique perspective of the formerly suicidal. The book sheds light on the phenomena of suicide vis-à-vis teenagers, the military, post-partum depression, as an end-of-life choice, and asks if addiction is a form of slow suicide. Dr. McDowell provides a seven-step healing process and explores suicide and the soul and today's global energy of suicide.
