Tattered Teddies: An interactive handbook about the awareness and prevention of suicide in children

“Tattered Teddies is a valuable contribution in that it provides information which is evidence-based and drawn from current research within the child suicide field…The authors also included information regarding prevention, intervention, and postvention which professionals can extend to the family, friends, and school-wide programs of a child with whom they are working. One final innovative area is the inclusion of a chapter addressing the often overlooked area pertaining to self-care for those dealing with children facing these difficult interpersonal issues.”
-Rebecca Goodney, MS and Julie Cerel, PhD
American Association of Suicidology, Book Reviewers

“My own assessment of the handbook is that it is very useful. The content is thorough and evidence-based, which I like. There is material for both families and professionals who work in this area. The handbook is also extremely well written and user friendly. I would definitely use it again, if the situation was appropriate.”
