Description

The path of grief after suicide loss can be uniquely challenging and complicated for those left behind. The bereaved often feel shattered and at a loss as to how to restore their resilience and wellbeing. In this interactive session, we will explore a restorative, trauma and bereavement-informed approach to supporting individuals, children, and families as they navigate the rocky terrain of grief after suicide. Prominent themes of suicide bereavement and the impact of stigma on the grieving process will be addressed. We will look at creative, restorative interventions and mind/body strategies that aim to help the bereaved cope with the interplay of trauma and grief reactions; process their stories of loss, and envision a path toward healing and hope.
