BDI - Beck Depression Inventory (the original, public-domain release)
None

This is the world-famous BDI for assessing depression levels.  It was never intended to be a diagnostic tool, but you can get symptom indicators.  This tool is intended for SP clinicians and NOT intended for research use (better to use the BDI-II, which is copywritten).  It's simply a quick way for a clinician to get some data about the client's level of depression, areas of focus, and topics for conversation.  It provides useful information for creating a treatment plan.  Health plans LOVE IT when you include these assessments with the client's record as part of a clinical review.  It validates a course of treatment and may assist in helping you get on-going reimbursement for treatment.

    I created this myself.  Keep in mind, this is the BDI, not the BDI-II (which is the most current).  BDI-II is copywritten, so you must buy it from Pearson Clinical.  But the original BDI is in the public domain.  In order for you to access this BDI template, it must be uploaded into the shared template library.  Someone at Simple Practice must do this and this requires an approval process.  I just uploaded this about a week ago, so it may be a bit before it becomes available.
