Suicide is an event that can profoundly disrupt survivors taken-for-granted constructs about life, sometimes traumatically shaking the very foundations of one’s assumptive world. While Post Traumatic Growth is a hot topic today, historically mental health providers have spent decades helping people cope with trauma instead of focusing on the client’s potential for resiliency. This recording will assist clinicians working with survivors of suicide as they explore 3 areas of impact that will lead to PTG. It will provide a roadmap for clinicians as they help survivors grope their way toward new sustainable frameworks of meaning by interrogating the tacit assumptions about life, God and the world around them that were challenged by the trauma. As a suicide survivor and psychotherapist, the presenter brings a dual awareness that will help prepare clinicians in their work with suicidal clients and the survivors of suicide who are left behind.
