The Columbia–Suicide Severity Rating Scale

Post  Admin on Sun Dec 18, 2011 3:35 am

The Columbia–Suicide Severity Rating Scale- Initial Validity and Internal Consistency Findings From Three Multisite Studies With Adolescents and Adults


Results:
The C-SSRS demonstrated good convergent and divergent validity with other multi-informant suicidal ideation and behavior scales and had high sensitivity and specificity for suicidal behavior classifications compared with another behavior scale and an independent suicide evaluation board. Both the ideation and behavior subscales were sensitive to change over time. The intensity of ideation subscale demonstrated moderate to strong internal consistency. In the adolescent suicide attempters study, worst-point lifetime suicidal ideation on the C-SSRS predicted suicide attempts during the study, whereas the Scale for Suicide Ideation did not.
Participants with the two highest levels of ideation severity (intent or intent with plan) at baseline had higher odds for attempting suicide during the study.
