This article presents pilot findings from a suicide prevention program employing a psychoeducational approach in which treatment is administered in a group format. The goal of the program was to train inmates in coping skills that could be used to deal with stressful situations. The Reasons for Living Inventory was used to measure changes in attitude. Results show significant pre- to post-treatment differences. Difficulties of developing empirical support for treatments conducted within this setting as well as implications for future research are discussed. (3 refs)
