Kemi Amole, Psychodynamic Psychotherapist
Before attending the PABBS training my experience of working with those bereaved by suicide was very minimal. I felt the team I worked within didn’t have the necessary skills and knowledge whilst working with these clientele. However when I arrived at the training I was left feeling more confident and equipped to work with families bereaved by suicide. […] I was not just able to hear the voice of the families, but also professionals like myself who support these families, how it felt for them, and what the best ways are when supporting families bereaved by suicide.
One thing, and alongside more others, that I can never forget from the training is that…
‘You may not be able to bring the loved one back, but you can definitely be flexible and listen to what families or who else has been affected by the bereavement need; and require from us professionals’.
