Advance Praise

“Jeremy Pettit and Ryan Hill created a very useful text for youth, and therapists working with adolescents. The book uses evidence-based principles and practices to provide the reader with accessible tools for youth in crisis, or who want to learn healthy coping skills. Overcoming Suicidal Thoughts for Teens is an absolute must-add to any set of training resources for clinicians!”
—Robert Cramer, PhD, associate professor of public health sciences, and Irwin Belk Distinguished Scholar in Health Research at UNC Charlotte

“This groundbreaking and timely work will help countless teenagers who are quietly dealing with internalized feelings of desperation and hopelessness around seemingly insurmountable pressures in their lives. It is viewed as a much-needed resource for teenagers to destigmatize the topic of self-harm during a time of unparalleled social and political unrest, and pressures associated with social media, the hypercompetitive world of college entrance examinations achievement and advancement, and prolonged pandemic-related angst and disruption.”
—Gary X. Lancelotta, PhD, ABPP, board certified in clinical child and adolescent psychology; and director of Child Psychology Associates, P.A. in Miami, FL
