I attended the training on July 9th 2019.  It was the first training in postvention that I have received and found the day extremely useful. The aims and objectives of PABBS training were set out in a clear and logical manner and the workbook was excellent. I liked the use of videos using people bereaved by suicide and GPs.  The tasks were very good and I especially liked the section on Building Resilience and Instilling hope. The presenters were very experienced and approachable. I liked the fact that there was a small number of people receiving the training at one time; this encouraged meaningful discussion and engagement. I highly recommend this training. I am a clinical lead in a Liaison team in a general hospital, working with people who have presented to the hospital following acts of self-harm or suicide attempts. Some of these people have been bereaved by suicide and there has been a lack of training and resources on how best to support people in this situation; PABBS is excellent and I would highly recommend this.
