Those surviving the suicide of a loved one require a level of support that goes beyond traditional grief counselling. Yet few mental health training programs devote any time to training clinicians on the challenge of helping survivors cope with their tragic loss. This program will cover topics including:
•How grief after suicide is different than other grief
•The impact of suicide on family, friends, and others
•Video examples of clinical techniques used in actual sessions
•Clinical work for survivors long term: Principles for effectiveness
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Human Service Professionals including: Counselors, social workers, clinicians, education professionals, as well as clinical students and interns.
This program is approved by the NASW and the NBCC for six continuing education contact hours.
COST: $75 General Admission/ $60 for students
