Traumatic bereavement workshop offered for caregivers

ABOYNE - The Suicide Awareness Council of Wellington Dufferin (SAC) is hosting an “Introduction to Traumatic Bereavement for Caregivers” workshop on March 22 from 1 to 4pm at the Wellington OPP station here.

The workshop is for individuals who want to learn about the trauma associated with suicide loss and how to respond to the bereaved.

Grief due to a death by suicide is often complex. It carries with it a stigma and the question of “why” is difficult to answer, organizers note.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for conversation about the unique grief journeys of those who lost a loved one to suicide.

SAC coordinator Heather Glenister says, “the council is very pleased to be able to host this valuable learning session.

“By better understanding the needs of the bereaved, we can collectively support individuals so that each and every one of us can bring hope and healing to those that are hurting.”

The content of the workshops is not intended to be clinical, but rather designed for the general community.

Registration is limited and can be done through Eventbrite

The event is being facilitated by Dena Moitoso, a registered psychotherapist (with a master’s degree in psychology specializing in traumatic bereavement), in partnership with the Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council.
