Workshop Overview: Understanding and Responding to Bereavement Following a Trauma

Violent or traumatic deaths bring a range of complex reactions, which can vary widely from individual to individual. Strong physical, cognitive and emotional reactions are common, with the social world of the bereaved also affected. Engagement with law enforcement agencies and the legal system brings its own challenges, along with media attention in many cases. Attendees at this workshop can expect to engage in a discussion of these complex issues and explore the most effective ways to provide support and assistance to the bereaved, while being mindful of the impact on the support worker themselves.

Learning Outcomes: at the conclusion of this workshops, participants will be able to:

Explore current grief and loss theories 
Understand and be able to offer simple techniques for managing strong emotions
Be aware of role definition and boundaries as a support worker when working with violent and traumatic deaths.
Develop an understanding of the complex needs of those bereaved through violent and traumatic death
Increase confidence in working with individuals affected by these issues.
