Description

Suicide loss is associated with increased risk for mood disorders, addiction, and the emergence of suicidal ideation in survivors. This training presents TAPS best-practice model of care for survivors of suicide loss, which has been refined over a decade of work with approximately 10,000 suicide loss survivors. Presenters will highlight the clinical value of the model, describe the 3 phases of the model, and map existing psychological theories to the model. Presenters will also bring the model to life by tracing the common themes and frequently-observed struggles of three categories of suicide loss survivors: surviving military family members, veterans who have lost battle buddies, and clinicians who have lost patients to suicide. This training has been specifically designed to offer very practical guidance in the form of questions that can be used by clinicians and peer support specialists who work with suicide loss survivors.
 
Participants will be able to:
  1. Appraise the three phases of TAPS postvention model of care as they relate to clinical practice
  2. Articulate two reasons why veterans’ grief may not be easily observable in clinical settings
