Support GroupsPosted: November 29, 2011
I thought it was time that I added a little something to the Wikipedia page on Support Groups. I found that Wikipedia did a good job covering many different aspects concerning support groups, so I found it difficult to add to the page. I did however notice that under the section header titled, “Types of Support Groups”, Loss of a pet was missing. Grief was listed however, after doing this project I found that there was a community out there on the web dealing with loss of a pet so I did feel that it was necessary for me to add a link to the loss of a pet support group. I was really surprised how easy it was for me to add to the Wikipedia page. I have heard many times about how Wikipedia is not a reliable source because of the easy access to changing information but I was still surprised. I don’t know why they would ever take this link down but I’m interested to see what happens. I’ll keep everyone posted!
