Transforming Self-Blame for Survivors of Suicide Loss
September 28, 2023 • 9am - 12pm MT - CE credit hours
Someone who loses a loved one to suicide is referred to as a survivor of suicide loss. When survivors of suicide - whether a parent, family member, partner or friend - carry self-blame for their loss, the grief process can be complex, problematic or stuck. They can lose their internal connection with their loved-one or engage in problematic behaviors as a form of punishment or reparation. When self-blame is deep, as is often the case with suicide loss, reassurance to lift self-blame is likely to be ineffective and can contribute to feelings of shame and isolation related to the experience.
In this training, participating clinicians will receive step-by-step instruction and a script for an individual chair-work intervention. A video demonstration will also be included in the workshop.
No prior training required. Participation can be active or passive. This training meets criteria towards certification through the International Institute for EFFT. Given its sensitive nature, this training will not be recorded.
