Griefshare Opens Fall Session

Program includes video presentation and group discussion

Support during a time of loss is a primary mission of Griefshare.  Local groups begin sessions this month in an outreach to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one.

Carol Ogle has been conducting and participating in Griefshare sessions for several years.  "It's a video-based program featuring many experts in the field of grief, and death and dying.  It features people who suffered their own personal loss and how Griefshare helped them through the process," said Ogle.

The sessions include the video presentation followed by discussion groups.  The discussion portion allows for open conversation and support for group members.  Cindy Cameron, a local group facilitator says the often candid talk helps each person better understand what takes place when grieving.

A session at First Baptist Church of West Monroe is tonight.  A session at Forsythe Avenue Church of Christ is scheduled for next Tuesday, August 25th.
