Guiding Loved Ones through Grief Due to Loss by Suicide

  • Wendt Center Training Institute 4201 Connecticut Ave NW Suite 300 Washington, DC 20008 (map)

The grief process for those who have had a loved one die by suicide is often laden with shame, stigma, anger, and even guilt. Therapy is often the only safe place for family members to talk openly and candidly about the complex feelings related to this loss. Yet, for many clinicians death by suicide is unfamiliar territory; what do you say, how do you navigate the complexities presented; how do you facilitate healing. Participants in this workshop will gain meaningful knowledge about complicated grief related to death by suicide and learn techniques to promote successful healing in both individual and group interventions. The role of media will be discussed along with healing for clinicians who have had clients die by suicide. This workshop is designed for mental health clinicians at all licensure levels and areas of practice.
