Suicide Bereavement Clinician Training
The suicide of a loved one can have a profound and sometimes devastating impact on those left behind, called suicide loss survivors. Bereavement after suicide may entail high levels of disorientation, guilt, regret, anger, shame, and trauma. Survivors may also be at risk for elevated rates of complicated grief and future suicidality themselves. This workshop is designed specifically for mental health professionals who may provide grief therapy for suicide loss survivors. It will provide a focused overview of the impact of suicide on survivors, and the clinical and support responses that are needed after a suicide occurs.
When: Tuesday, Jan. 25 and Wednesday Jan. 26, 2022 9am – 12:30pm EST
Virtually via Zoom Attendance at both days is required
