The ASIQ may be used during intake interviews or during treatment to reduce liability and take appropriate preventative action whenever there may be a risk of suicide. Endorsement of critical items alerts you immediately in case of serious suicidal ideation. The ASIQ includes a 25-item self-report; items rated on a 7-point scale; and a built-in scoring key.
Norms are based on 2,000 adults aged 18 years and older, including psychiatric outpatients, normal adults and college students.
Internal consistency and test-retest reliability coefficients range from .96-.97 and .85-.95, respectively in various samples.
The ASIQ yields a total score with a corresponding T score and percentile score. Comparing the total score to a cut-off allows you to identify individuals in need of further evaluation for suicide risk.
Results of several research studies support the ASIQ as a valid measure of suicidal ideation.
