This presentation will offer a brief overview of what suicide is and isn’t, but the primary focus will be on suicide prevention as a social justice issue. The ethical implications for suicide prevention and postvention approaches will be discussed, including developmental issues, grief support and memorialization.

Drawing from research and case examples, we will explore ways in which loss and grief processes are uniquely complicated in deaths by homicide within multiple contexts - developmental, social, historical and geo-political contexts. Participants will learn about culturally conscientious and responsive strategies and strength-based practices in ethically sound work with marginalized youth and communities.

In addition to the practical evidenced-based practices for psychotherapy in loss and trauma Dr. Hoy will offer in this workshop, he and his wife will talk about their personal journey of integrating this loss into their lives. They will talk poignantly about the impact on themselves, their adult children, and their friendship circle, as well as the ways they continue to grapple with meaning in the shadow of this event.
