Managing Traumatic Bereavement
Friday, July 1, 2016 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
In May some of our LOSS clinicians attended a conference devoted to the impact on survivors of sudden death or traumatic bereavement. We were moved by the seriousness of the subject because it has so much relevance for families who have experienced a suicide loss.

In June we celebrate Father’s Day which is a day set aside to honor fathers in a very special way. It is a painful day for those fathers who have lost a child to suicide, for those children who have lost a father, a grandfather or a father figure. Such a day is filled with a void because that person is not here to be honored and there is pain or possibly guilt because those survivors might feel that they let this man down while he was alive or have regrets that the survivors could have been kinder and more loving towards this father, grandfather or child. With this death the time to be demonstrative of love and affection is over and the guilt or regret take over to torture the survivors.
