The conference will provide useful ideas and strategies for helping adolescents who have experienced traumatic loss, especially loss following the suicide death of a peer. We will present current best practice concepts for responding to schools and community organizations. A significant focus of responding to violent loss, including suicide deaths, is the prevention of further suicides. We will focus on how “changing the narrative” about suicide to traumatic loss leads to wellness and hope. Given the particularly important role of social media, we will also address the ways in which social media and online experiences can help create a narrative of healing and hope.
