260 - SIMPLE STEPS: A Comprehensive Model of Suicide Assessment

Mar 18, 2017 1:00pm ‐ Mar 18, 2017 2:30pm


Based on a study of more than 12,000 callers to a suicide prevention hotline, the goal of this session is to take the mystique out of conceptualizing suicidality and to present an evidenced-based, comprehensive model of suicide assessment. Issues of working with a diverse clientele, clinical supervision, documentation, and treatment planning will be highlighted in the context of comprehensive suicide assessment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will learn about a new evidenced based, comprehensive model of suicide assessment.
  • Attendees will discuss not only how to assess clients with this model of suicide assessment but also how to document suicidality and integrate suicide assessment into continuous treatment planning.
  • Attendees will discuss the implications and practicality of this model in clinical practice and clinical supervision.
