With suicide as a continuing concern, educators need to address gaps in counselor training to meet CACREP standards and prepare counselors to serve suicidal clients. A Curriculum Task Force defined 7 domains of 24 competencies for working with individuals at risk for suicide (AAS, 2006). Counselors were surveyed about suicide self-efficacy and instructional strategies in their graduate programs. A self-efficacy measure using the core competencies framework was developed and analyzed. This presentation presents findings from the exploratory factor analysis and the survey.
