"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.”

"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

"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)

"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

"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)
