We are a community based support group following the Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ASCA) program developed by the Morris Center (ascasupport.org) in San Francisco.
This is a peer support group and not a therapy or counseling group. It is also for adult abuse survivors only, who are not currently perpetrating abuse on others.
"The purpose of ASCA meetings is to allow survivors to share their abuse and recovery experiences, to receive support and affirmation for their recovery efforts; to try out new, more adaptive behaviors and, in so doing, to better understand themselves and their recovery process" ... quote from ASCA's "From survivor to thriver" manual. Child abuse encompasses physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and neglect.
