Grief after Suicide: Walking the Journey with Survivors

Feb 23, 2013 09:00am -
Feb 23, 2013 04:30pm

Event Description

John R. Jordan, Ph.D., instructor

The suicide of a loved one can have a profound and sometimes devastating impact on those left behind, called suicide survivors. Bereavement after suicide may entail high levels of disorientation, guilt, regret, anger and trauma. Survivors sometimes struggle with the social stigma often placed on suicide. Survivors may also be at risk for elevated rates of complicated grief and future suicidality themselves. This workshop will provide an intensive overview of the impact of suicide on survivors and the clinical and support responses that are needed after a suicide occurs. Keeping with the theme of Dr. Neimeyer’s presentation the workshop will offer a special focus on the challenge to meaning-making that suicide can present to survivors, and on narrative techniques that can help with the healing process. The workshop will include didactic presentation, group discussion, case examples from the presenter’s practice and video.

Upon completion of the program the student will be able to:

    ·         Describe the impact of suicide on survivors

    ·         Describe clinical and support responses that are needed after a suicide occurs

    ·         Discuss a special focus on the challenge to meaning-making that suicide can present to survivors and on narrative techniques that can help with the healing process
