Presentation Abstract

Psychological Body Armor (PBA) is a unique form of human resilience consisting of two key pathways: proactive resilience (one's immunity to crisis) and reactive resilience (one's ability to bounce back from adverse experiences). Recent exploratory research was able to identify several components from each pathway that predicts overall resilience, which disaster mental health and other emergency responders can build to help maintain functioning after exposure to traumatic events. However, these same components can be applied to help strengthen the research mentor-mentee relationship in order to enhance the quality, efficacy and productivity of collaborative research pursuits.
