This is the second book based on the TRIPLE i in Suicidology international conferences, which are organised annually by the Slovene Center for Suicide Research in memory of the late Prof. Andrej Marušic with the aim of promoting intuition, imagination and innovation in the research and prevention of suicide and suicidal behaviour. The carefully selected chapters provide food for thought to practitioners, researchers, students and all those who come into contact with the tragedy of suicide, with the hope of stimulating new ideas and interventions in the difficult fight against suicidal behaviours.

In five parts, the internationally renowned team of authors summarises the research looking at understanding individuals (assessing risk in older adults and psychotherapy with suicidal patients), understanding the groups at risk of suicide (including people in prison, men, and people with mood disorders), understanding the role of community(including the Papageno effect and technology-based and collaborative approaches to prevention), models of understanding suicide (including the integrate motivational-volitional model of suicidal behaviour and the hot air balloon model for postvention with those bereaved by suicide) and understanding the unique ethical and methodologicalissues associated with research in this field.
