Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Resilience can be defined as one’s capacity to effectively cope with, adjust to or recover from stress or adversity. Research has demonstrated that higher levels of resilience may decrease the risk for suicide. During this webinar, we will review the relationship between suicide risk and resilience. We will examine how this relationship may impact our inmate-patient population and discuss methods to increase resilience in incarcerated patients.
