Hosted by the Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton.
This new seminar has been developed in collaboration with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and the American Association of Suicidology (AAS). It is designed specifically for mental health professionals who provide grief therapy or counseling to suicide loss survivors.
The training focuses on individual therapy, and includes information about suicide bereavement, the tasks of loss integration for survivors, and discussion of case examples and specific techniques that may be helpful in working with survivors.
The overarching goal for the development of this training is to increase the quantity and quality of professional mental health support for suicide loss survivors.
