Coping with the Devastating Loss of a Loved One to Suicide
In a powerful and emotional way, this show gives voice to the unspeakable. Listen as host, Suzanne Phillips joins with guests BeverlyFeigelman ACSW and Dr. Bill Feigelman, two of the co-authors of Devastating Losses: How Parents Cope with the Loss of a Child to Suicide or Drugs. Bringing the listeners very close to the pain of such loss, Beverly and Bill share their own story, the loss of their son, a talented filmmaker. As such, they make clear the fears, shame, self-blame, stigma and the desperate need to make meaning—to understand “Why?”

As professionals who have devoted their lives to research, intervention andprevention of loss by suicide, they offer important insight not only into the pain but the causes, the warning signs, the protective factors, the possibility of coping, the use of mental health professionals and the power of connection with others. In the back and forth discussion with host, Suzanne Phillips they bring the devastating loss of suicide “out of the darkness” for us to deal with together.
