Suicide Prevention Clinician Training Program
Presented by John (Jack) Jordan, PhD and Vanessa McGann, PhD
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, shame, and trauma. Suicide loss survivors need a level of support that goes beyond traditional grief counseling. This workshop is designed for mental health professionals who 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. The workshop will include didactic presentation, group discussion, case examples from the presenter’s practice, and video clips from grief therapy sessions. These research-based techniques will help you gain confidence in working with survivors of suicide loss.
