About Our Speaker

Michelle Post is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Continued Education Provider, Clinical Supervisor in private practice in Los Angeles. Michelle internationally consults and trains in areas of grief, death notification with children and teens, stress & burn-out prevention, group facilitation, ASIST suicide prevention, executive leadership and team-building.

Purpose and Objectives

At any given time, situation or group, statistics tell us that 1 out of 20 people are thinking of suicide. Healthcare workers, students, therapists, teens, professionals of any type, and the latest group to show an increased risk (those aged 45-60) are likely to be thinking hopeless or suicidal thoughts and at risk for acting on those thoughts. It’s time to stop the silence and make our communities safer from suicide. A wide variety of tools and skills are necessary for a provider’s “tool box” to help caregivers with suicide prevention and post-vention with child, teens and adults.

In her work with grieving children, teens and their families, Michelle has experienced both effective prevention methods as well as post-vention to help survivors of a loved one who died from suicide.

With the aid of case studies, research and training from LivingWorks, and effective interactive interventions, professionals and beginners will learn valuable suicide prevention and post-vention skills to help each participant aid in the creation of a suicide-safer community.   

But it does not stop there, resilience doesn’t happen in a vacuum. When a family experiences a death to suicide, or has to learn to cope with or recover from mental illness or other major life stressor, they need concrete tools to guide them towards coping and on to resilience.

Chronic stress affects the health and risk of both the bereaved as well as the professionals who care for them. Chronic stress can lead to burn out, hopelessness, and helplessness. However, mindfulness and stress management interventions can revitalize both the bereaved as well as valuable professional caregivers in this field.

With the aid of the research of Figley and Pennebaker, Ms. Post will provide guidance and training to help professionals teach some simple stress management, mindfulness and coping skills to the bereaved, volunteers or colleagues.

Participants will engage in proven interactive discussion activities and interventions that are surely able to help sustain peak performance and prevent burnout in valuable staff.
