Supporting Survivors of Homicide

Price: $16.95 
Item # N1679  

Release Date: December 23, 2015

Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

This course provides information on how the healthcare provider can better serve grieving and traumatized families of murder victims. Although victim advocates and crisis responders have skill-based training for victim assistance, many other professionals who encounter those affected by homicide are unaware of the emotional and psychological impact of such crimes. As survivors grieve the death of their loved ones, they also must navigate the criminal justice system, learn their rights, and seek professionals in the community who can support them. To meet the immediate and long-term needs of survivors, it is important to recognize what directly affects the way survivors cope with their situations.

This course first focuses on homicide, types of killings, and those affected by homicide, who are otherwise known as co-victims. The course then examines the factors that influence the grief process after a homicide and possible grief reactions. Finally, it explores the criminal justice system and its impact on those bereaved by homicide.

 

This course is an extraction of and should not be taken with, N1658 Death, Dying, and Bereavement, 3rd Edition (30 contact hours).

Understanding the Significance of Suicide

Price: $26.95  
Item # N1678  

Release Date: December 23, 2015

Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

Suicide is the 10th ranking cause of death in the United States. Before attempting to understand the reasons people take their own lives, it will be helpful to identify one’s personal attitudes about suicide. Those who assist or treat suicidal clients must be educated in suicide prevention, comfortable in their role, in touch with their fears when supporting someone who is demonstrating warning signs of suicide, and emotionally prepared if suicide affects them and makes them clinician-survivors. This course provides a practical guide to help healthcare professionals develop an understanding of warning signs, risk factors, population-based prevention, protective factors, and learning assessment skills needed to respond effectively on professional and personal levels. It seeks to meet the requirements of any healthcare professional who wants to have a better understanding of suicide.

 

This course is an extraction of and should not be taken with, N1658 Death, Dying, and Bereavement, 3rd Edition (30 contact hours).

Managing Grief in the Workplace

Item # N1685  

Release Date: December 31, 2015

Expiration Date: December 31, 2018

Workplaces face the difficult challenge of dealing with death-related losses. Healthcare professionals often confront loss and grief while supporting clients. No workplace is immune to loss. When tragedy strikes an organization, there must be guidelines in place to manage the impact of the loss on leaders, management, and employees. This course defines key terms, provides an overview of critical considerations for bereavement policy development, and incorporates key principles that can serve as the basis of bereavement policy, whether for private employers or for comprehensive workplace programs.

First, this course identifies the possible grief reactions of bereaved employees. With an understanding that loss affects employees, the course then examines the bereavement policy planning process. Next, the focus moves to a compassionate workplace and what leaders, managers, and colleagues can do when loss affects employees. Finally, this course explores workplace transitional changes, including non-death- and death-related losses.
