Suicide Bereavement Clinician Training Program
Time & Location
About the Event
Those surviving the suicide of a loved one require a level of support that goes beyond traditional grief counseling. 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 more complex than other forms of grief
- The impact of suicide on family, friends, and others
- Several options for intervention with survivors
- Clinical work for survivors long term: Principles for effectiveness
This program is approved by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) for six continuing education contact hours.
