Adult Survivors of Child Abuse
Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (ASCA) is an individual and group support program for adult survivors of physical, sexual, and/or emotional child abuse or neglect.
ASCA's StepWork (21 steps) is a statement of the tasks and issues that most adult survivors face during their recovery from child abuse. Unlike some self-help programs, ASCA does not require that participants work the steps - although you may choose to do so - or that the steps be worked in a linear order. StepWork is a process whereby you concentrate on one particular step at a time in a given recovery program.
The Morris Center's "Survivor to Thriver" manual (a 115 page guidebook for ASCA participants, as well as for any survivor of physical, sexual and/or emotional child abuse or neglect) and all ASCA materials are available free to download.
