Suicide Loss: Post-Crisis Management (Level 1)


Professionals or para-counsellors in the helping profession may encounter clients who have lost someone through suicide or may themselves lose clients through suicide. This 1-day workshop at Level 1 focuses on rendering immediate assistance and support to suicide survivors to counter pervasive and persistent effects of the traumatic grief. Participants will learn the knowledge and skills necessary to provide post-crisis support following a suicide death, drawing on current literature, real-life scenarios and simulated role play practices

Target Audience

Practitioners, para-counsellors or those in supervisory positions who may encounter suicide losses in the course of their work and are potentially required to extend immediate post-crisis support to those affected by suicide death.
