Based on the book, Unfinished Conversation: Healing from Suicide and Loss – A Guided Journey by Robert E. Lesoine and Marilynne Chöphel MFT, this comprehensive curriculum package provides everything you need to offer a 10-week group in your community or organization. Different from a general support group, this guided healing process explores a different topic each week and is paced through four phases:
(1) Stabilization: Creating Support and Honoring
(2) Processing: Coming to Terms with Memories
(3) Transformation: Finding Perspective and Meaning
(4) Integration: Deepening Healing and Wellbeing
The package includes full guidelines, lesson plans, handouts, and exercises that can be used in whole or part, and can be adapted for the unique needs of each group setting, including for online video group connection. The curriculum is designed for the use of professionals, organizations, and group leaders who serve those touched by suicide loss including hospice and grief services, suicide loss support groups, high schools, colleges, social service and mental health programs, suicide prevention services, therapists and clergy, and other healing professionals.
