Counselor Trainees (CITs) report receiving little to no suicide intervention training in their preparatory programs, so it is unclear what skills and interventions they use in working with clients at risk. This quasi-experimental, longitudinal study collected data at five-time points during a semester and examined the differences between CITs trained in ASIST versus control (training as usual) during their first clinical experience. Study rationale, results, and implications will be discussed.
