Emotions Can Vary When Someone You Know Falls From Grace

There has been concern about how young people in the city who have had contact with former Common Councillor Donnie Snook will react to his fall from grace.

Katina Feggos-Russell of Family Plus Counselling tells CHSJ News the entire community can be affected when a high profile personality gets into trouble and there's a real roller coaster of emotions such as denial, anger, grieving, a sense of betrayal and disillusionment.

She says there are some people who will try to block the person out as a means of coping and advises parents to let their children express how they're feeling openly and honestly.
