Handwritten in less than 30 minutes with an index card, the Crisis Response Plan is a practical suicide prevention tool that can be completed anywhere, at any time, by any trained individual.
The Crisis Response Plan reduces suicidal behavior by up to 76%, making it one of the most effective suicide prevention tools developed to date.
The Crisis Response Plan helps individuals in crisis to remember why they want to live and to manage their stress more effectively. Training can increase the strategy's efficacy.
An innovative treatment approach with a strong empirical evidence base, brief cognitive-behavioral therapy for suicide prevention (BCBT) is presented in step-by-step detail in this authoritative manual. Leading treatment developers show how to establish a strong collaborative relationship with a suicidal patient, assess risk, and immediately work to establish safety. Proven interventions are described for building emotion regulation and crisis management skills and dismantling the patient's suicidal belief system. The book includes case examples, sample dialogues, and 17 reproducible handouts, forms, scripts, and other clinical tools. The large-size format facilitates photocopying; purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials, including templates, tips, and resources specific to the crisis response plan procedure.
