The author briefly critiques the growing literature on the subject of suicide survivors, to determine practical implications for clinicians & managers of intervention programs. Topics include: stages of bereavement, individual difference variables (i.e. factors which may act as moderators of the survivor experience & which may help clarify which survivors will have the best outcome), social support & public perceptions of suicide.
