9/11 Online Community Support Group:
9/11 Families: A House Divided, A House Created
After a tragedy such as 9/11, families go through all kinds of changes. This can help to bring people together, or it can make it a real challenge to keep relations close. We will discuss these issues during the next chat on Tuesday, March 28th from 8-9pm EST. It is open to members who have found successful ways to keep family and friends together after 9/11, and to those who are trying to make it work. This online chat session will provide 9/11 victims' families, survivors, first responders, and others affected by the attacks at the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, and Shanksville the opportunity to discuss issues and topics of importance in a safe, supportive environment. As a reminder, all participants must be FOS11 members (please see below on how to register as a member - membership is free). Dr. Donna Gaffney, a licensed mental health professional and noted trauma specialist, will facilitate the chat.
