This webinar explains the theoretical and practical foundations of the AUDIS-Estimation process. Its main elements are:
- teamwork and the sharing of expertise and information
- the need to seriously consider all suicidal behaviours from systemic and longitudinal perspectives
- adaptating the investigation to the person’s characteristics (estimation criteria and language)
- decoding the person's language and behaviours
- multiplying sources of information
- integrating suicide prevention into intervention plans.
The AUDIS-Estimation process is a clinical decision-support tool for immediate danger and long-term suicidal risk, specifically adapted to the particularities and needs of people with intellectual disorder (ID) or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It has four complementary spheres of risk investigation: identification, estimating the short-term danger, evaluating the medium- and long-term risk, and assessing the suicide option.
