Regarding Richard Rogers’ June 30 letter, “Why put down counseling?“: I share Rogers’ opinion. For 10 years, I have organized a volunteer group that offers group counseling at two orphanages in Chiba Prefecture for children who are grieving over the loss of their family.
I am well-aware of the benefits of peer support. I have materials and methods for providing group counseling to children of the devastated Tohoku-Pacific region and am eager to deliver them. All I need is people who have a desire to work with me.
