Postvention: Healing After Suicide

Postvention is a term unfamiliar to many people, yet it is a critical component of suicide prevention. Postvention refers to actions taken following a suicide that help promote healing and decrease risk in those exposed. Join Dr. Shauna Springer, the Senior Director of Suicide Prevention and Postvention Initiatives at Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, or TAPS, as she discusses postvention and why it is important, in “Postvention: Healing After Suicide.” TAPS has served thousands of survivors of suicide loss over the past decade, and in the process they have developed and refined a best-practice postvention model. In this course, Dr. Springer introduces learners to the three phases of this model, which include Stabilization, Grief Work and Post-Traumatic Growth.

    Postvention is something that is generally not discussed often, so I enjoyed the video.
