Description


The LAS is a self-report instrument for teenagers between the ages of 15 and 20 that is based on the theoretical construct of suicide proneness. It assesses life-enhancing behaviors and life-threatening behaviors to provide a complete evaluation that is useful in any situation where an individual's attitudes toward his or her own life may be of concern. The long version of the LAS has 96 items covering 11 scales. The short version (LAS:S) includes the same scales as the long version, but does not provide as much detail with only 24 items. The short version is ideal for follow-up testing and can measures the effectiveness of intervention or repeated assessment over time. Back to the top
