"Violent Death and
Its Shadow of Traumatic Grief:
From Seattle to the Middle East"
E.K. Rynearson, M.D.

The violent death of a loved one is horrific. Dying from homicide, suicide, accident, or military/terrorist attack is more sudden, frightening, and stigmatizing than natural dying. This may be followed by a subtype of prolonged grief complicated by a vivid narrative reenactment of the dying and intense feelings of remorse, retaliation, and nihilistic despair. In his presentation, Dr. Rynearson will clarify the salient narrative themes of violent dying and their specific effects on trauma and separation distress. He will also describe the treatment approach he developed, restorative retelling, now used nationally and internationally in trauma clinics, treatment centers, prisons, New York City 9/11 support programs, and community support programs in the Middle East.
