Event description
This module will develop your understanding of what language is helpful in conversations with children and young people bereaved by suicide.

About this event

LIVE online training via ZOOM delivered by EXPERTS in this field.

About the Module

In the difficult circumstances that surround a suicide there is often not time or head-space to think about any children in the family.

Adults are often unsure what to say to children and struggle to find helpful words to talk about suicide with a child.

Families have an understandable wish to protect their children from difficult things, which can lead to them avoiding conversations that a child needs in order to process what has happened.

This module will compliment the module ‘Language and Suicide Bereavement’, where the focus is on adults.

Target Audience

Any professional who may find themselves interacting with a child bereaved by suicide, in any setting.

Teachers, Emergency Services, Health Visitors, nurses and doctors in hospitals, staff in GP surgeries, Funeral Directors, Clergy, Coroners office, Social Workers, CAMHS teams, Youth workers, Foster parents.

Focus of this Module

Children and young people who have been bereaved by suicide.

Aim of the Module

This module will explain why honest information about a death is helpful to children.

It will explore the use of language for children of different ages and how to choose words that make these difficult conversations possible.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will better understand the needs of children following a suicide and the importance of a sensitive use of language when talking with children bereaved by suicide.

Participants will feel more confident to support families to have open and honest conversations about the death of someone by suicide, and be more confident in their own conversations with children.

Due to the sensitive nature of this training, it is MANDATORY that your video camera is switched ON for the duration of the training.
