September First Friday Webinar

Suicide Bereavement 

 Presented by Deb Shumate, MA, LPCA, NCC

September 9, 2016

FF Webinar 12pm – 1pm



Suicide is becoming more prevalent thus creating a greater number of people bereaved by suicide. Understanding some key points about suicide is essential for those clinicians working with these clients. There is always a desire to understand how and why their loved one took their life and it is important for clinicians to have a basic understanding of this type of loss. It would be a mistake to assume that this type of loss is the same as others. It is not. This presentation will address what makes this grief complicated, how to help clients who are suffering from this type of grief, and why group counseling is beneficial.
