A murder-suicide can shatter the equilibrium in the lives of those left behind.  Following a murder-suicide, families and friends may be confronted with several situations which they may find overwhelming. It is critically important that we, as a community, come together to let them know that they are not invisible, and they are not alone in their journey to healing. 

Training participants will explore the homicide-suicide connection in lethal incidents of domestic violence and discuss the recommendations of the Georgia Domestic Violence Fatality Review Project as they pertain to  murder-suicide. Additionally, participants will discover and practice the implementation of a community protocol for responding to the needs of survivors of murder-suicide.
