I recently attended a training session entitled “Talking to children and young people when there has been a suicide”. The training session lasted approx. 90 minutes and was delivered by Suicide Bereavement UK. The training session was excellent and was delivered by staff who clearly have a high level of expertise in this field but who are also able to deliver such training in an easy-to-understand way. The training session was varied and included lots of engagement with attendees and also a group exercise. This training is definitely something that can help practitioners support children and young people who have experienced bereavement by suicide. I would highly recommend this training and will be recommending it to my colleagues who were unable to attend.
