Abstract

The recent publication of core competencies in suicide risk assessment and management (Suicide Prevention Resource Center, 2006) and the American Psychiatric Association's (2003) practice guidelines have raised concerns about how best to address these issues in clinical supervision of trainees. This article reviews the identified core competencies, addresses implications for supervision of trainees, and provides a general framework for applicable strategies for the supervision process to facilitate clinical skill development and refinement.
