CALM: Counseling on Access to Lethal Means

Originally developed by Elaine Frank and Mark Ciocca as an in-person workshop, CALM was adapted by SPRC into a 2 hour online course. It is designed to help providers implement counseling strategies to help clients at risk for suicide and their families reduce access to lethal means, particularly (but not exclusively) firearms. It includes a number of components: background on suicide data and lethal means; an introduction to firearms; video presentation that models the counseling strategy; a presentation and discussion on conducting a counseling session; optional role plays; and a course evaluation. The original workshop is in section III of the BPR,

Prevent violence evidence base

This tool provides access to abstracts from published studies that have measured the effectiveness of interventions to prevent violence. To be included in the database, studies must have measured the impact of interventions directly on violence. Studies have been selected through a systematic review of published academic literature and the full inclusion criteria for studies can be accessed via the menu bar. The abstracts can be searched by violence type, keywords and geographical area of implementation. Self-directed violence is one of six types of violence covered. Records are added on an ongoing basis.
