Abstract:
This paper explores what effect, if any, occurs when psychotherapists and counsellors who have been bereaved by suicide meet with clients who raise the subject in therapy. After providing a literature review and a discussion about quantitative and qualitative methods, a variety of different methodologies is examined. Following this examination, the heuristic method is considered to be the most appropriate. Using an open ended conversational style of interview, this method enabled the eight co-researchers to talk about their lived experience, which in turn developed into themes: the bereavement, the aftermath, the work with clients and their subsequent experiential learning. The analysis of the findings is illustrated by giving an individual depiction, a composited depiction, an exemplary portrait and a creative synthesis. In the final chapter, the study takes a reflexive look at the emerging themes and considers the design and limitations of the study; areas for further research are also considered.
