Holiday Chat This Week

Join Dr. Donna Gaffney and your peers in the 9/11 community this Thursday, Dec. 2, at 8:00 PM EST for a special one-hour chat about coping during the holidays.

Facing the holidays can be challenging for families and survivors of any devastation. To help you cope during what may be a difficult time, Families of September 11 will be hosting a special chat room discussion on Thursday, December 2 from 8:00-9:00 PM EST. Dr. Donna Gaffney, a licensed mental health professional, noted trauma specialist and faculty member of the International Trauma Studies Program at New York University, will moderate.

We encourage you to participate so that you can discuss particular issues that you face, learn and share coping strategies, and support others in the 9/11 community. The FOS11 Chat Program provides a secure and sympathetic environment in which to explore issues of concern with your peers, facilitated by a trained professional.
