Recovering after Loss: Postvention Strategies for Schools Presented by Larry Berkowitz, Ed.D.

Postvention activities in schools aim to address the needs of bereaved students and staff, reduce the risk of contagion, and promote the healthy adaptation of individuals and the community. The goal of this webinar is to provide guidelines for effective postvention as they relate to schools and the school community. The presenter draws from broad experience in postvention and will present informational highlights, which include data and comments generated by students at schools throughout Massachusetts where postvention activities have been implemented. This segment of the postvention workshop is based on Riverside Trauma Center’s Postvention Protocols, which were listed in the former SPRC Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention. We provide both guidelines for structuring a school’s response and for managing challenges and dilemmas such as social media and memorials.
