Who are we?


Research-Based Education & Consulting came about because of a need to address an important issue in a different way. Most suicide prevention strategies are reactionary. They are based on implementing a plan of action to save people who have exhibited suicidal tendencies or presented information which hints at becoming suicidal. These means and interventions are very necessary and save lives. Thus, the RBEC approach is a method to compliment these methods, and also attempt to reduce their necessity by empowering people to reverse course, and not become suicidal in the first place. This new technique is a combination of multiple psychological and behavioral theories and practices, including emotional intelligence, positivie psychology, resilience, cognitive theory, behavioral theory, learning theory, interpersonal psychological theory of suicide, and others.
