Pub. Date:
Osborne (psychiatry and behavioral sciences, George Washington U.) is a practicing psychiatrist with 20-plus years of experience in the profession. She presents an edited diary of a young American woman who committed suicide in her early 20s. Written over a seven-year period and discovered only after her death, the diary provides a uniquely in-depth, longitudinal first-person account of the evolution of self-esteem and the suicidal process. In addition to a detailed transcription of the diary, the text includes Osborne's commentary and analysis based on the diary's contents, discussions with family and friends and treating professionals, a review of medical and clinical records, and several encounters with the victim. The text offers health care professionals, aspiring professionals, and parents insights into the adolescent mind and the changes needed to develop more effective suicide prevention and treatment strategies.
