The loss of a child is an unspeakable trauma. When that death is caused by suicide, the pains becomes more complex. If you have lost a child to suicide, you are most likely experiencing the complicated grief that surrounds this loss. We might experience feelings of shame, guilt, anger, blame, shock, and isolation that are difficult to understand.
We recommend individuals be four to five months out from their loss before joining this group. This group typically has 10 members along with two facilitators. All of the participants are working through a complicated set of emotions. Our groups provide a safe, intimate place to talk about your feelings and honor your loved one who passed.
Meetings will be virtual. We will follow The Wilderness of Suicide Grief – Finding Your Way by Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph. D. Participants receive a copy of the book and a journal in the mail. This support group meets every other Tuesday from 5 to 6:30pm AZ time via Zoom. Sessions begin on Jan. 9th and end on May 14th
