Laws and Associates Counseling
Bringing Families Together



Presentations, workshops and staff developments on suicide and bullying

                                  Dr. Leslie Laws - speaker


  In the spring of 2000, I immersed myself in research concerning suicide and how families bounce back from a tragedy.  The dissertation, Survivors' of Family Resilience After Suicide, was the result of the journey.  Since the publication and completion of my doctorate, I have given presentations at staff developments and workshops as an advocate against suicide and bullying.  My presentations are related from the viewpoint of an educator and survivor of suicide.  In the presentation, I cover the warning signs of suicide and bullying and present interventions on how to cope with the grief process.  Current research on suicide is also incorporated into the presentation.   If you live in the Dallas - Fort Worth area, feel free to contact me at 214-668-6927 or for a speaking engagement.  Sample of topics in the presentation are as follows:

  • What do we know about suicide?
  • Risk factors
  • Warning signs
  • Counseling techniques
  • Issues of the survivor
  • Current research
  • Resilience
  • How do we process grief for the suicide survivor?
