This study evaluates the reliability of the Firestone Voice Scale for Self-Destructive Behavior (FVSSDB), which is based on the concept that a suicidal person has a destructive “voice” or an integrated system of negative thoughts & attitudes. The author concludes the scale is an effective assessment instrument which provides insight into the specific destructive voices of a patient, thereby facilitating diagnosis, identification & counselling.
