Guidance for Educational Settings Following a Suicide or Sudden Death

This comprehensive document is designed to support teams to create policies and procedures for their setting and is a practical tool to refer to in the event of a crisis. We are proud to have co-written this resource with suicide prevention charity, The OLLIE Foundation, to provide leadership teams in schools and other educational settings with the detailed guidance needed to coordinate an appropriate, helpful and safe response following the tragic event of a suicide or sudden death in their community. It can also be used to plan and inform a clear suicide response strategy, just in case it is ever required.

Dr Weston Talks with Dr Hope Christie: Parenting with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

In this podcast, Dr Weston talks to Dr Hope Christie about her research into the impact of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on parents, and the ways in which experiences of trauma affect their parenting and the wider family dynamic. The message is one of admiration for how parents suffering from PTSD manage to cope with the many everday challenges that they face as parents. Trauma, and its impact, needs to be better understood by all of us. In learning more, we give ourselves and our children a better chance of thriving if and when it ever affects our own family.
