While many efforts are focused on prevention and intervention, clinicians must understand the critical importance of providing best practice-based postvention services, including peer support. The TAPS Suicide Postvention Model™ is a three-phase approach to suicide grief that offers a framework for survivors and providers in the aftermath of a suicide by proposing guidance on how to build a foundation for an adaptive grief journey and creating a research-informed, proactive, intentional pathway to post-traumatic growth. Join TAPS experts Dr. Stumpf Patton and Ms. Burditt to discuss the development and practical application of this model for a wide range of professionals who interact with and support suicide survivors. </p><p><strong>Presenters</strong></p><p><strong>Kim Burditt</strong>, MSW, Senior Manager of Programs &amp; Logistics, Suicide Prevention &amp; Postvention, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)</p><p><strong>Carla Stumpf-Patton</strong>, EDD, LMHC, NCC, FT, CCTP, Senior Director, Suicide Postvention &amp; Prevention, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)</p><p><strong>Continuing Education Information</strong></p><p>Continuing education (1.5 CEs) is available for $25 per certificate.
