In this video from a recent CBT workshop at the Beck Institute, Dr. Aaron Beck discusses CBT for suicidal ideation. Dr. Beck references the suicide intent scale which is used to determine an individual’s level of suicidality. Dr. Beck explains that suicidal patients typically experience high levels of hopelessness. It is key to address and decrease hopelessness to reduce suicidality.
