FOS11 Chat Program Online Community Support Group
Managing the Holidays

The holidays are upon us.  We are dealing with crowds, family, friends, financial strains, cooking, eating, and are likely to experience the ups and downs of the holiday season.  This can be both a happy and sad time for remembering times with those that were lost on 9/11/01.  This chat will give you an opportunity to explore some of these mixed feelings, and also share with your peers, successful strategies for managing through the season.  The chat will be held on Wednesday, December 20th from 8-9pm.  To enroll click on the link below.

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.
