Substance misuse and traumatic grief webinar
During this webinar, expert speaker and Adfam trustee Lorna Templeton provided an overview of the relationship between traumatic bereavement and substance misuse. This included a discussion of social aspects of grief and an overview of the potential for all forms of sudden death to lead to substance misuse issues. An overview of the essential 5-step method of intervention, and the ways that this can be used to support relatives and children, was also covered.
We have made available a PDF of the PowerPoint presentation from the day, for your reference:
