This summarized paper examines the feelings of guilt & anger often experienced by survivors of suicide victims. In an effort to explain the suicide, for example, survivors may focus blame on themselves, or express anger toward others. The authors also discuss the value of suicide survivor groups & of completing a psychological autopsy on the victim as a means of assisting survivors in dealing with these emotions. (GW)
