In a Nutshell:
What You Must Know About Suicide
Suicide is not an illness.
The story behind it: An animated Video
Columbia University Press
The book gives a profound insight into the phenomenon of suicide and what goes on in the mind – and in the brain – of the suicidal person. And it gives hope for people who may be at risk of life-threatening suicidal crises.
“I have vivid memories of the conference workshops in which Konrad would play back videos of patients telling their stories of suicidal thoughts and behaviours. We would dissect the conversations between the patient and their clinician, to identify best practice, to reflect and learn from these encounters.”

“The field of clinical suicide prevention is exploding in terms of focus and research. Within this context, the “Attempted Suicide Short Intervention Program” (ASSIP) is perhaps the most significant innovation we have seen in the assessment and treatment of suicidal risk in the past decade. Developed by a superb team of clinician–researchers, this patient-centered approach is built on sound theory, clinical practice, and science. This is a landmark contribution and may well mark a fundamental shift in how we think about effectively intervening to help save lives of suicidal patients.”
