Workshop Details: Suicide is one of the primary circumstances of loss within the military community. We all have a responsibility to shepherd those families on their post-loss journey as the surviving families are at a 60% increased risk of dying by suicide themselves. Be part of the system collaboration effort and learn how you can be a part of the change.
Amy Dozier is the surviving spouse of SSG Jonathan K. Dozier, who was killed in action on January 9, 2008. Their daughter Emma had just turned one when Jon died. Through the years, Amy found a sense of great purpose in sharing her experience as a military widow and new mom, while also keeping Jon’s legacy alive for his daughter. Amy ultimately became a strong advocate for purposeful grief journeys and post-traumatic growth in the military family unit. As she continued working with other families of the fallen, she became deeply impacted by the mental health disparities in the military. Amy is a trauma-informed leader in military postvention and utilizes her strengths and compassion to disrupt military suicide through specific postvention efforts. Amy holds a Master’s Degree in Community Service Management and more recently became a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist. Her greatest passion comes in empowering others to use their story for good.
