Senior Psychologist, Prof. Joseph Osafo, has called on the Ghana Psychological Association to provide the bereaved family of the persons who unfortunately perished in a fire outbreak at buduburam with counselors.
According to him, the tragedy can potentially harm the psychological faculty of the family members, so psychotherapy is needed to avoid any traumatic episodes.
A family of seven met their untimely death in a fire that engulfed their apartment at Big Apple, a suburb of Gomoa Buduburam in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.
Robert Assan Donkoh, 60, and his four-month-old baby girl and the entire family were burnt.
The cause of the fire remains sketchy but according to eyewitness accounts, the fire gutted the apartment around 5 am.
Speaking on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'', Prof. Joseph Osafo commiserated with the bereaved family and appealed to the President of the Association to immediately step in to help them as well as any person close to the family who may be affected by this tragic incident.
"It's an injury to your conscience; an injury to your emotions . . . The thing that's happened, it can harm. It harms the conscience of people, what they call moral injury. Even I just hearing about it that a whole family has gone down the drain isn't easy," he said.
