PABBS suicide bereavement training is a one day workshop  and includes a work book, nine films clips and a 60 page manual for future reference and is delivered by two trainers, who have over 30 years combined experience working with those bereaved by suicide. Please note there is no role-play during this training and a certificate of attendance is provided.
