Internationell enkät om säkerheten på online och telefonmöten!

Dear Fellow Travelers,

We are writing as it is important to hear your concerns and what the ACA World Service Organization (WSO) can do to address virtual and online safety issues. The Ad-hoc Meeting and Service Safety Committee (MSSC) was created from a floor motion at this year’s Annual Business Conference. Our initial purpose is to address safety issues related to virtual meeting environments during the coronavirus pandemic and develop a long-term strategy and potential resources to help the ACA fellowship effectively address other chronic safety issues.

Please take a few minutes to complete the online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SafetySurvey-Phone_Virtual .

Please note that this survey will close on October 14th so that responses may be used to formulate our first town hall. All are invited to attend on Saturday, October 31, from 12 pm – 2 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).

The Zoom link for the MSSC Town Hall is:
Meeting ID: 813 5789 7158

These are opportunities for us to hear your concerns, and to share our ongoing efforts. This information is also on our webpage, https://acawso.org/category/ad-hoc-meeting-and-service-safety-committee/

Please email us at meeting-safety@adultchildren.org with your questions and concerns.

Yours in service,

”Our Loving Parent & Inner Child Codependency Prevention Plan” Workshop

There are substance and behavioral disorder relapse prevention plans and suicide prevention plans . . .

Attendees of this workshop will walk away with a Codependency Prevention Plan created in collaboration with your Loving Parent & Inner Child!

This workshop embraces participants from ALL 12 Step programs who desire to heal from the effects of childhood trauma and dysfunction– those effects may include but are not limited to self-abandonment, codependence, self-comforting via substance or behavioral disorders, relationship conflict or failure, and chronic mental-physical suffering.

Attendees should bring something to type or write on. Colorful, creative art/craft supplies and post-it notes are welcome! Attendees can also bring powerful affirmations, their favorite stuffed animal, and a favorite bedtime story or lullaby. 

*** NOTE #1: The morning workshop is open to 12 Step women only. The evening workshop is open to 12 Step women AND men. Trans and non-binary 12 Steppers identifying with female experience are welcome. Women can choose to attend one or both of the workshops; the content will be similar but not identical. ***

*** NOTE #2: These workshops will be held in lieu of the speaker meetings that usually occur at these time slots due to a lack of volunteer Speakers on this date ***
