planning interruptions of tasks

I find it difficult to deal with interruptions of tasks in gantter. In real life it occurs frequently that specific tasks disrupt the execution of other tasks (examples would be: workshops, conferences, other time intensive activities with shorter or longer duration).
It would be nice to plan and specify these 'disrupting' activities in gantter. I tried to use "resources" for this, but then I found that tasks can not be interrupted. This means that they are always planned completely before or completely after the 'disrupting' task.
Now I'm looking for a way to temporarily suspend tasks.
Is it possible to do this in gantter? Or is there a different solution to my problem that I haven't thought of yet?
