Thomasville, Georgia-- With Hurricane Katrina fresh on everyone's mind, a church in Thomasville held an open forum Thursday on how to cope with disasters.

It started at 7:00 at First Missionary Baptist. There were lectures and a question and answer session. Specialists from several fields were there to talk with participants one-on-one. "We had psychologists there from various agencies who talked about how to understand and cope and deal with it. We had ministers who talked about the mind, the body, and the spirit," says Outreach Coordinator, Dr. Donnell Carley.

One of the main reasons organizers wanted to hold the forum is because of the Katrina victims in Thomasville. They say that it might help them deal with post traumatic stress syndrome.
