ABSTRACT
Suicide assessment is one of the most daunting tasks asked of psychotherapists, as clinicians are often faced with evaluating a client's suicidality at a moment's notice. Because it is important for psychotherapists to be continually aware of knowledge and skills related to current assessment practices, this article provides a brief update on suicide risk factors, myths about suicide, and suicide assessment strategies. Simple tips and resources for further information and training are also included.
