Losing Someone You Care For to Suicide

 

 

 

Session Description

Have you lost someone you’ve cared for to suicide? Or are working with those who have? Losing a loved one to suicide may lead to the development of Complicated (Traumatic) Grief. This workshop offers tools to determine whether or not a survivor is suffering from Complicated Grief and the guiding principles and key techniques of evidence-based Complicated Grief Treatment. Also learn to distinguish between survivors who may benefit from grief treatment and those who may not benefit from grief counseling or even find it unhelpful.

     #2 Identify and apply key characteristics of Complicated Grief.
     #3 Identify and apply the guiding principles and key techniques of evidence-based Complicated Grief Treatment.”
