In this practical session, we will explore two best practices for suicide assessment and intervention. First, participants will learn how to use the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) and converge C-SSRS results with additional contextual information to identify necessary level of care for clients with suicidal ideation. Then, participants will learn considerations for outpatient management of low to moderate suicide risk including how to conduct the Safety Planning Intervention (SPI). The presentation will incorporate demonstration, application, and discussion throughout.

Workshop Objectives

  • Integrate the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) into comprehensive suicide assessment
  • Utilize C-SSRS results and additional contextual information to identify appropriate level of care for individuals with suicidal ideation
  • Apply Safety Planning Intervention (SPI) in context of counseling relationship.
