with Ann Duckless

1 Hour Webinar Training

PRESENTATION: Using national best practices, postvention training prepares key service providers with ways to participate in and/or coordinate an integrated and effective community response to the suicide death of a client, student, colleague, or community member. Since knowing someone who has died by suicide is one of the highest risk factors for suicide, taking steps to reduce risk and promote healing (postvention) becomes an integral part of suicide prevention efforts. Connect Postvention training is offered to community stakeholders who may respond to a sudden death, to include suicide, in order to encourage help-seeking, reduce stigma, and promote healing for loss survivors and community members.. As a result of this training participants will:

  • Gain an awareness of the impact of suicide and recognize warning signs of individuals who may be at increased risk after a suicide.
  • Understand the grief that results after a suicide and learn ways to enhance coping for oneself and/or others after a loss.
  • Understand best practice protocols for communication and access to resources after a suicide that may reduce further risk, and support healing for an agency or community impacted by a loss.
