Abstract (Summary)

While the rate of suicides is increasing in the United States, these tragedies leave behind loved ones or suicide survivors who experience not only the grief of loss but also unresolved emotions accompanying this complex and often stigmatized form of death. The bereavement needs associated with suicide survivors are unique. The purpose of the thesis was to develop a curriculum addressing the conditions surrounding individuals completing suicide and the effects on suicide survivors. The Mindfully Healing Suicide Survivor Bereavement curriculum consists of ten-week sessions tailored to the specific needs of the bereavement processes for suicide survivors. The curriculum utilizes an integration of psychoeducational content and mindfulness-based practices activities emphasizing the bereavement processes of suicide survivors. The methods include didactic information, interactive discussion, creative expression, and the development of mindfulness-based practice skills.
