This book provides a comprehensive view of rational suicide in the elderly, a group that has nearly twice the rate of suicide when chronically ill than any other demographic. Views of rational suicide are evolving, particularly because of a growing older population with a longer life expectancy. However, there is little guidance for geriatric mental health professionals about this. The book’s frame of reference does not endorse a single point-of-view about the legitimacy of rational suicide, but serves as a resource for both those clinicians who agree that older people may rationally commit suicide and those who believe that this wish may require further assessment and treatment. This book is the first to consider psychotherapeutic, spiritual, and pharmacological interventions for an older adult who is contemplating suicide without a diagnosable mental illness. The book concludes with a commentary on modern society, aging, and rational suicide that ties all of these elements together, making this the ultimate guide for addressing rational desires for suicide among the elderly. Rational Suicide in the Elderly is an excellent resource for all medical professionals with potentially suicidal patients, including geriatricians, geriatric and general psychiatrists, geriatric nurses, social workers, and public health officials..
