One-day suicide bereavement and taking good self care workshop in Staffordshire
Stowe By Chartley
Suicide bereavement is a deep sadness and grieving that occurs after the loss of someone you know. While grieving is a natural response to losing someone significant to us, when someone dies from suicide we may experience numerous difficult emotions, thoughts and behaviours.
For every suicide, there are often many family members, friends and colleagues who are affected. Individuals work through their personal bereavement very differently; however, some aspects of suicide bereavement are shared due to the circumstances associated with suicide. It is fundamental that as professional counsellors, support workers, social workers, teachers, tutors and healthcare professionals we respond with consideration, compassion and respect so that we can support the bereaved through their grief.
The workshop includes different aspects of working with someone who is bereaved by suicide. It is an interactive workshop; therefore by taking part in the activities and being involved you will gain information and increase your existing knowledge and skills.
