About the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide" (Edery, R., 2013):
----------------------------------------------------------------

This book is directed to the individuals without any experience of Twelve Step recovery, the seasoned veteran of Twelve Steps, as well as the experienced mental-health professional. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have helped countless addicts. This healing process is based upon spiritual principles that speak to the human spirit. A tenet of this book is that healing from trauma will not happen until the person has worked through the experience. The application of the Twelve Steps can greatly aid this endeavor whether the person is a child, adolescent, adult, addict, or a non-addict. Repressed traumatic experiences often cause problems later on, and in varying forms. The frightening part of processing traumatic events is the re-opening of doors to terrible places, to facilitate recovery from the original event(s). Within the context of a holding relationship that is safe, compassionate and gentle, a survivor is able to acknowledge what happened, that she survived and that she is able to live a meaningful life.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 1 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide" (2013). Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on Step One of AA: “We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable”. “Step One is your guide on how to process and heal from trauma. It will also serve as your guide to personal growth, which is applicable for anyone, not just for trauma survivors. Why is processing trauma, and personal growth, important for you? You may wonder of the necessity of going through such a process, especially if you are high functioning and successful in life. After all, growing pains are indeed painful, and we humans are wired to avoid pain and seek pleasure. You also have a responsibility to take care of yourself, and although some pain can be avoided, there is the pain that cannot be avoided, and requires processing. This is your turn now, and you begin with this first step. The word “admit” is to accept what is valid and true for you personally. This step asks you to accept what areas in your life that have been affected by your personal trauma history, causing your life to be out of control, unsatisfying, or chronically problematic for you.” (Edery. R., 2013: "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide, pg. 48”).

Next show we'll address STEP 2. Please see our web page at: http://www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com All of these shows are recorded as they air, and are available later for "on demand" listening as a recommended episode in our special guest archives at: http://www.NAASCA.org/_2014-RadioShows-RECOMMENDED.htm

We look forward to your participation!

People with demanding jobs are turning to #methamphetamines in an attempt to increase work performance. 
METHAMPHETAMINE is the new target of Australia’s police and drug agents as the country wrestles with an “ice epidemic.”
