Violent or traumatic deaths bring a range of complex reactions that can vary widely from individual to individual. Strong physical, cognitive and emotional reactions are common and the social world of the bereaved is affected also. Engagement with law enforcement agencies and the legal system that brings its own challenges, along with media attention in many cases. Attendees at this workshop can expect to engage in a discussion of these complex issues and explore the most effective ways to provide support and assistance to the bereaved, while being mindful of the impact on the support worker themselves.
