This grounded theory study explored survivorsÕ experiences of healing after youth suicide. The major theme developed in the study, Journeying Toward Wholeness, involves the inter-relationships among 3 sub-themes: Grieving in Response to Youth Suicide, Mourning in Response to Youth Suicide, & Healing in Response to Youth Suicide. The theory supplements the basis of holistic practice, directs us to accept a broad range of survivorsÕ expressions of movement towards wholeness, stresses the importance of working with survivorsÕ stories, & encourages us in relational practice.
