Survivors can be at risk for elevated rates of complicated grief and suicidality themselves. All of this makes surviving the suicide of a loved one a potentially life-changing ordeal that requires all of the resilience that a survivor can muster, and all the support and understanding that family and community can provide.
Led by John R. Jordan, Ph.D, this presentation draws on his years of experience as a clinician specializing in work with suicide loss survivors to describe the pathways that survivors may travel. Geared towards people who are grieving a loss to suicide, as well as those who care for them (including clinicians, friends, extended family, and others), the goal is to help participants better understand suicide and the grief that may happen when a suicide occurs.
We will hold two After Suicide: Understanding Your Grief presentations again in the Fall. Please check back on our website for dates and locations. Questions may be directed to Emily Britt at email@example.com.
