Free Suicide Bereavement Clinician Training
August 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Native Americans for Community Action, Inc. (NACA) is sponsoring the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Suicide Bereavement Clinician Training workshop on August 9, 2019 in Flagstaff. Please mark your calendars and register. The event is free but registration is required because sitting is limited to 30 participants.
Those surviving the suicide of a loved one require a level of support that goes beyond traditional grief counseling. Yet, few mental health training programs devote any time to training clinicians on the challenge of helping survivors cope with their tragic loss.
This program will cover topics including:
• How grief after suicide is more complex than other forms of grief
• The impact of suicide on family, friends, and others
• Video examples of clinical techniques
• Clinical work for survivors long term: Principles for effectiveness
