SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 2 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 2) - 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 2: "Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity." Applying Step Two to the struggle of healing this aspect of the traumatic wound (difficulty trusting, and difficulty with authority figures), begins with a careful inspection into the programming of a trauma survivor. Somewhere in a survivor's programming is a single operative principle, which at once holds the person back trying to heal and grow in this area, but keeps him putting up a front, perhaps even leading to relationships that do not work, dead-end jobs, or boring routines. In this area of trust, which Step Two directly addresses, the survivor is undeveloped. Step Two can help you get unstuck and able to trust, where trust was once so frightening and impossible. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 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 3 & TRADITION 3. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
