This document, intended for for universities and clinical training directors, contains guidelines for the development and implementation of simulation-based suicide clinical skills training. The guidelines explore multiple facets of the use of simulation in suicide skills training, including:

  • The benefits of incorporating simulation-based learning
  • Considerations for resource allocation
  • Development of simulation scenarios
  • Training of standardized clients
  • Recommendations for implementation and facilitation of simulation-based learning experiences
