Webinar: Faith Responses to Suicide

December 13 at 3:00-4:30 pm ET

Faith Responses to Suicide, led by Robert Cooke, D.Min and Kevin Varner, MSW.

As Spiritual Care professionals and Psychotherapists, we are faced with the deep woundedness of those who present for help after a loved one has completed or attempted suicide.  Clients bring their own faith traditions and value systems to the therapy room.  Some have values that can help with their healing process.  Some values act as barriers.  This workshop will be an opportunity for professionals to reflect on experiences of suicide within their own personal contexts as well as with clients.  This in turn will provide insight into how to partner with clients on their own journeys toward healing.

Participants will be able to:
Construct a theological and theoretical reflection on causes of suicide.
Identify appropriate ways counselors and spiritual care professionals can respond to those affected by suicide within a faith context.
Describe the ways faith can act as a resource or a barrier to a client coping with the suicide of a loved one.
Identify ways in which therapists and care professionals can provide client-focused care that provides healing to those wounded by suicide.
