Abstract

Suicide is a consistent and considerable public health problem for which effective interventions are needed. This review outlines the weaknesses and shortfalls of the current research literature aimed at developing and evaluating interventions for this population. Randomized controlled trials targeting suicidal behaviors in which cognitive behavioral therapy interventions are compared to control interventions are summarized. Finally, common factors seen across those trials which have found significant differences between their cognitive behavioral therapy intervention and the control conditions are highlighted, and elements that are consistent across the trials that did not yield significant findings are also discussed.
