Lesson 2 consists of five individual modules, each featuring a sample case study. Each case study is based on a fictitious scenario of a police officer who has died by suicide.

The case study is provided and is to be used to help develop a case history and to assist in completing the Psychological Autopsy Template (PAT). Information found in the scenarios and other areas of the course will help to bring together a better understanding of the decedent’s life (personal and professional) and a timeline of events and circumstances preceding death.

See individual case studies below. Learners are expected to choose one of the five cases featured to be used to complete all coursework and the Psychological Autopsy Template and Final Project in Lesson 10.
