In this video from a recent CBT workshop at the Beck Institute, Dr. Aaron Beck describes ways to identify a person at risk for suicide. He discusses immediate risk factors (such as those shown through the use of predictive scales), peripheral risk factors, and demographic risk factors. Dr. Beck also discusses his previous research involving the post-attempt suicide ideation scale and important findings from that research.
Beck Institute’s next CBT for Depression and Suicidality Workshop will take place July 15-17, 2013. For more information, visit our website.
