Tips on using this test in your telepractice
Use this powerful predictor of eventual suicide to help you measure three major aspects of hopelessness: feelings about the future, loss of motivation, and expectations. Responding to the 20 true or false items on the Beck Hopelessness Scale® (BHS®), patients can either endorse a pessimistic statement or deny an optimistic statement.
Predicts Eventual Suicide
Research consistently supports a positive relationship between BHS scores and measures of depression, suicidal intent, and ideation.
