Review:

*Highly Commended in the Health and Social Care category of the 2012 BMA Medical Book Awards*

'After the Suicide is a "must read" for anyone working with those bereaved by suicide, whether children, young people or adults. I can't imagine finding a more informative and compassionate book about surviving suicide. It mixes hones, direct personal testimonies, well-referenced research and clinical knowledge to create a unique source of myth-busting information and practical advice - and more.

I was eager to read this book when I realised the skill and knowledge of the authors: a respected researcher of bereavement, who established the Norwegian Organisation for Suicide Survivors; a qualified suicidologist/clinical psychologist; and a colleague of theirs with personal experience of suicide bereavement. There was nothing in the content to disappointment me, and there is little jargon and no academic blustering. Even if you think you know a lot about grief from suicide, this book may well give you more to think about.

Each chapter could stand alone, but reading the book from beginning to end provides us with a clearer understanding of the reactions and needs of those bereaved by suicide. It is also better preparation for the final chapter, "Why suicide?"'

Author: Children & Young People Now

In this one volume can be found all the important facts about grief that follows when someone kills himself/herself. Equally important, the authors have given us material to put those deaths in context. As a long-time survivor and as a writer about mourning after suicide, I see this book as a major achievement, following in the footsteps of others who have tried to put the terrible aftermath of suicide in perspective. Author: Christopher Lukas, Author of Silent Grief: Living in the Wake of Suicide and Blue Genes: A Memoir of Loss and Survival

[This book] is eminently readable: clear, simple, and comprehensive in its coverage of the experience of losing a loved one to suicide... After the Suicide is a superb book for those who are bereaved by suicide, for those who wish to help them, and for those whose professional work leads them to walk the difficult journey with survivors. Author: From the Foreword by John R. Jordan, Ph.D, FT., Psychologist and Founder and former Director of the Family Loss Project, USA

This translation of a book written by Norwegian researchers and psychologists seeks to guide those offering bereavement support. Although the statistics and examples given are Norwegian, the themes it addresses are universal and the book will be relevant to anyone affected by suicide. It deals with the most common questions and reactions to suicide... Layout, style and contents are clear, enabling the reader to select the most relevant chapter to their own situation, and the book is well referenced. Author: Therapy Today
