Special Announcement: How to Survive Traumatic Loss
As always, thank you for reading my blog. I am so sorry that your family has been affected by suicide or another type of traumatic loss. I hope you will receive a bit of comfort from what I write. You can survive what has happened. Nowhere is that thought more important than in how we interact with our children (grandchildren, nephews and nieces, cousins).
With that in mind, I have created a new resource - How to Survive Traumatic Loss - for survivors of suicide loss and other types of traumatic loss that is available now. It will provide specific activities you can do with your family as well as resources you can use to help rebuild your own life.
Here is just one of the digital items included in this project:
Helping Children Grieve - Yes, children and teens of all ages feel the loss of someone important in their lives. See how you can model handling grief and provide age-appropriate information. Take back the time you have with your children. Most of these ideas are tech-free. Easy and inexpensive, they will bring healing to the whole family. $5.00. Click the link above for more.
If you have specific questions or needs you are having a hard time finding resources for, contact me by clicking on the “envelope” icon above.
Parents and other family members often ask how they can help their children after loss to suicide. These men and women face a daunting task especially since they themselves are enduring almost crippling sorrow. Fortunately, there are wonderful resources available on just this topic.
Way for Hope
Losing someone you love is difficult, but it can mean a lot to hear from others traveling similar paths.
