Finding Your Way after the Suicide of Someone You Love by David B. Biebel, Suzanne L. Foster

Help and Hope for an Unexpected Journey Do real Christians commit suicide? Yes, they do. And for those left behind, the journey following such a tragedy is unbearably painful. Finding Your Way after the Suicide of Someone You Love is a compassionate and practical guide that addresses the intensely personal issues of survivors of suicide (SOS). This gentle and faith-affirming resource helps survivors know what to expect, especially during the first year following a suicide. It includes personal stories of survivors and suggestions on how to move beyond survival to live life again. Designed for use by individuals, couples, and SOS groups, this book offers help for parents, siblings, friends, and extended families, as well as practical guidelines for pastors, Christian counselors, and other church leaders. Topics include: * What to do in the immediate aftermath of a suicide * Handling guilt and understanding the role of depression in suicides * Dealing with questions of faith and meaning * Creating a support system * Choosing a Christian therapist * Trusted resources and websites
