    Is this a template or one you created yourself? how can I access it without having to create it myself?

    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.

    Simple Practice needs to hire you Ryan! You have come up with so many great templates! We all want them available in SP so I say they save time and just pay you to do it for them! ;) Thanks for sharing all of them!

    Is there an automatic scoring system?

    At this time, there is no way to automatically score the tool after it is used.  The template simply presents the data in a format that makes it easy for the client to answer the questions.  You will have to do the scoring yourself.  Simple Practice MAY be in the process of creating a template that will include a feature by which scoring can be completed.  But as of this writing, no such feature exists.

    Hi

    For the various inventories supplied by SP, I don't know where to find the scoring mechanisms.  It would be great to have BDI, but what about the ones provided?  How do you score them??? Anyone know?

    I just Google search "BDI scoring" or "BDI score ranges."
