The Aftermath of Suicide (Recorded May 22, 2013)

Suicide can bring with it feelings of failure, disgrace, humiliation, shame, guilt, blame, dishonor, embarrassment and overwhelming pain that can plague the survivors for years. Not only do survivors have to cope with the sudden loss of a beloved son or daughter, but there is also society's stigma associated with suicide. We consciously or subconsciously face the false assumptions, bias, religious judgments, and prejudice against the person or the parents faced with death by suicide. As surviving parents of their son's suicide, the Jensens hope to add new light on this subject by #1 EDUCATING and #2 EQUIPPING people with information that helped them on their grief journey to cope with the aftermath of suicide. Presenters: Dr. Doug and BJ Jensen

Dr. Doug and BJ Jensen are authors, international speakers, dramatists, and sign artists with LOVE IN MOTION Signing Choir. They co-founded the Create Loving Relationships Ministry. The Jensens live in San Diego and have been married 25 years. They have two sons (one in San Diego and one in heaven) and three wonderful granddaughters.
