Beck Scale For Suicidal Ideation (BSSI)
The Beck Scale for Suicidal Ideation (BSSI) is a tool which measures suicidal thinking of clients who are at least 17 years old. This was created by Aaron Temkin Beck, an American psychiatrist who is also known as the father of cognitive therapy. The BSSI is usually completed within 5 to 10 minutes and has been translated into various languages such as Spanish and German. This test may be purchased by those with level B qualifications which means that they should have pertinent master’s degrees, certification, license, or supervised training.
