Whether fellow service members are killed in action, killed during training accidents, or die by suicide, the theme often involves exposure to sudden, unpredictable, violent deaths. In “Grief and Trauma,” Dr. Shauna Springer explains that grief and trauma are different challenges — and that they require different healing strategies. At the end of this course, the learner will understand symptoms common to both grief and trauma after suicide loss, describe why grief is often overlooked in clinical settings where Veterans and military families are served, and understand why it is important to treat trauma after suicide loss before treating grief.
