Participants will build awareness of the impact of suicide and overdose death and learn to conduct a support group for those bereaved by the painful loss of a loved one. Support group facilitation skills, self-awareness and self-care skills will also be studied. This training is structured for funeral directors, clergy, mental health professionals and non-clinicians with support group experience. The course is also appropriate for current support group facilitators who seek to strengthen their skills, stay up-to-date on the latest practices and explore issues experienced during support groups. Those who have endured loss due to suicide or substance use are also welcome to attend this course if it has been at least two years since their loss.
