In a society where suicide is often viewed with fear or disapproval, it can be difficult for those personally affected by a suicide death to come to terms with their loss and seek help and support.A Special Scarlooks in detail at the stigma surrounding suicide and offers practical help for survivors, relatives and friends of people who have taken their own life. Fifty bereaved people tell their own stories, showing us that, by not hiding the truth from themselves and others, they have been able to learn to live with the suicide, offering hope to others facing this traumatic loss. This new, revised edition includes new material on individual and group work with survivors of suicide. The new material incorporates the latest research findings which have added significantly to our understanding of the impact of suicide. This new edition will continue to be an invaluable resource for survivors of suicide as well as for all those who are in contact with them, including police and coroner'sofficers, bereavement services, self-help organizations for survivors, mental health professionals, social workers, GPs, counselors and therapists.
