What happens at meetings?
Most meetings begin with introductions
and each survivor telling of his or her loss. Often there is
to guide discussions, such as the grief
process, the criminal
justice system or favorite memories. Usually meetings revolve
members' own knowledge and experience, but occasionally outside
speakers are invited to present information and to learn from survivors.
Should I attend all meetings?
Some members attend meetings regularly, while others attend
infrequently or maintain contact primarily by phone or mail.
The group is sustained by members who have made progress in their
recovery but stay with the group to give support to newly bereaved
survivors. POMC has no religious creed or affiliation.
