"Suicide Prevention through Sound Suicide Assessment"
“. . . . The CASE Approach moves the clinician almost imperceptibly into the secret internal workings of the mind and soul of the patient tormented by suicidal ideation. I believe that the CASE Approach is a remarkable conceptual and clinical contribution to the field of suicidology. It should be routinely taught to any front-line clinician. It has the power to meaningfully save lives.”

Past President, American Association of Suicidology
Author of Managing Suicidal Risk, Second Edition:
A Collaborative Approach
