A Program to Promote Resilience in Stroke Survivors and Care Partners

(IRB#: IRB_00142681)

Stroke can have a large impact on a persons life as well as their family. Unfortunately, changes in mood, such as feeling down, anxious, or having difficulty enjoying things, can be a common experience for persons who have had a stroke. Similarly, changes in mood can also affect the persons partner, who provides support. We have created a program for couples who are coping with the effects of stroke. Research is needed to better understand how to design the most effective program that improves the emotional health of couples coping with stroke.
