PABBS Evidence-Based Suicide Bereavement Training



Aim of the training:

To provide professionals with an opportunity to build their confidence and skills on how to respond to and care for those bereaved by suicide.

About PABBS training

PABBS evidence-based suicide bereavement training was informed by a three year study, conducted at the University of Manchester, funded (£243k) by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), led by Dr. Sharon McDonnell and her team and first of its kind internationally.
PABBS training is a one day highly interactive workshop, delivered by two trainers, who have considerable experience working with those bereaved by suicide. There is no role-play during the training. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
