SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 9 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 9) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 9: "Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others." Step 9 reminds you once again that you cannot overcome personal difficulty alone. You pray for the willingness to be willing. If you have people on your list where there has been mutual harm being done you may have difficulty with this step. There may some who you do not feel it necessary to make amends. It is advisable, again after consulting with a trusted advisor, that you start making amends to those folks on your “Right Now” list, then your second list and then your third list. And finally, you will re-visit your last list, the “Never!” column. Becoming willing allows you to prepare yourself for this work through prayer by using of any tools that support your efforts to overcome personal roadblocks. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 10 & TRADITION 10. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
