About the Book
Murder Survivor's Handbook
Real-Life Stories, Tips & Resources
Connie Saindon's professional as well as personal experience have given her a unique perspective that few others have. Not only did she learn first-hand about criminal death, she learned that she is a Survivor in every sense of the word. However, she also realized that little was known about the impact of murder on the survivors or their needs.
Murder Survivor's Handbook: Real-Life Stories,Tips & Resources fills that void for the Survivors, the co-victims of murder. This book provides information, resources, and strategies for learning to live with the aftermath of a homicide, including safety issues, dealing with the criminal justice system, addressing the news media, and coping with traumatic grief, while preserving the memory of a loved one.
In the book, Survivor Writers describe their own experiences and, through their tips and suggestions, lend a helping hand to those who follow in their footsteps.
