Survivors of Incest Anonymous Online
Posted 07 August 2010 - 10:53 AM
The online group is going to involve a typical SIA meeting, which includes everyone getting a chance to share what's going on with them and hearing brief readings (basically about how innocent and wonderful we are), and then, I'm adding an additional component to the typical SIA meeting, which is that we'll read a brief passage from a book about inner child healing, do an exercise from the book, and then share about that with the group.
Unfortunately, SIA rules state that those under the age of 18 cannot participate in SIA meetings. Pro-survivors (people who support survivors but have not been abused) are not allowed at this meeting, although there are some that allow them. Also, perpetrators of sexual abuse may not join. Women AND men are welcome at this online meeting.
Anyway, if any of you are interested in joining, the online group is meeting Wednesdays at 8 PM EST at http://meetingsonline.com. When you get onto the site, all you need to do is click "Chat Now," which will bring you to a screen that will ask for a name that you want to be called by and which avatar you want to choose to represent your presence in the group, and then, under groups, scroll all the way down and hit "SIA Room." Yeah, so that's basically it. I hope to 'see' you all on Wednesday!

I feel like I am now ready to try SIA meetings after having been in Alanon for 3 years (also a great 12 step group for those affected by another person's drinking). I live in NYC and would like to try a face to face meeting. Could you recommend one?
Thanks SO much!
