Suicide affects all societies and has unfortunately become more common in recent decades.  Understanding the factors influencing this phenomenon can help in developing programs to reduce suicide.  Past studies have identified emotional vulnerabilities such as emotion dysregulation as risk factors for suicide. A secondary factor is parenting styles, which again has been studied for its effect on suicide risk. Identifying factors in suicide risk can be important in crafting prevention programs. The aim of this study was to predict resilience to suicide based on emotion dysregulation and parenting styles among Shiraz university students. The method of research was correlational.  The sample included 148 students of Shiraz University who were selected via convenience sampling method.  Measures were Resilience to Suicide Inventory, Emotion Dysregulation Scale and Parenting Styles Questionnaire. For regression analysis, stepwise methods were used. The results showed that authoritative parenting style can predict resilience to suicide positively and significantly. Authoritarian parenting style and emotion dysregulation also predicted resilience to suicide negatively and significantly. This work shows that emotion regulation training and educating parents about the impact of parenting styles can help improve resilience to suicide.
