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 wherever 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. People on your list where there has been mutual harm being done may present difficulty. There may some who you do not feel it necessary to make amends. Again after consulting with a trusted advisor you start making amends to those folks on your “Right Now” list, your second list and your third list. Finally, re-visit your last list, the “Never!” column. Prepare yourself for this work through prayer. ~~ 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 10 & TRADITION 10. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: email@example.com
