"Bereaved Military Families: Supporting Resilience in the Face of Veteran Suicide"
Presented By: Eugenia Weiss, PsyD, LCSW
A resilience-based approach to military families coping with unique grief reactions to veteran suicide will be presented. Examples of how social work clinicians can adapt solution-focused and narrative techniques with a bereaved military family will be delineated.
Goals and Objectives:
1) Participants will be able to describe how to apply solution-focused and narrative perspectives with a veteran family that will enhance the family’s resilience by providing new meanings and interpretations of grief responses.
2) Participants will learn methods of addressing survivor guilt and sense of responsibility in their clients in the aftermath of veteran suicide.
3 ) Participants will be able to formulate solution-focused and narrative therapeutic questions to be used with bereaved families to promote healing and resilience.
