Summary "The literature on the relationship between culture and suicide has historically been widely scattered and often difficult to find. This well-organized book summarizes that widespread literature so that counselors can begin to include diversity issues - now recognized as important variables to consider - when conducting suicide assessments or interventions. Cultural Diversity and Suicide focuses on Americans of European, African, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American backgrounds, and the cultural/ethnic variables the book examines focus on gender, age, religion, and sexuality."--Jacket
