Corrections Staff Suicide

There is substantial evidence that the suicide rate of correctional officers is higher than that of the general population. This workshop describes evidence-informed factors of corrections staff suicide; strategies to create a workplace culture that counters these factors, and, instead, nurtures factors that promote resilience and wellness; ways to intervene when staff members appear to be reaching a breaking point; and ways for administrators to effectively and compassionately address a completed staff suicide. This is offered as a 4-hour course.
