Supporting Suicide Survivors During a Pandemic

 

 

 

Session Description

Have you lost someone you’ve cared for to suicide? Or at working with those who have? Losing a loved one to suicide may lead to the development of Complicated (Traumatic) Grief. This workshop will offer participants the 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. Participants will 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.

Learning Objectives

     #1 Specify and summarize at least five frequent reactions 1 to those who’ve lost someone they’ve cared for to suicide.
     #2 Specify and apply key characteristics of Complicated Grief.
     #3 Specify and apply the guiding principles and key techniques of evidence-based Complicated Grief Treatment.
