Workshop in L.A. on Socializing

The workshop on Socializing in Recovery will take place Saturday, March 9, 2013, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., in Plummer Park’s Art Room #1, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046. Please note that this is afternoon. We will again be multi-tasking, by discussing what socializing in recovery is all about, and how to socialize as one of the Tools To Help Us Get Better. Attendees are encouraged to bring and share their ideas for using the Tool of Socializing. We will have a draft piece of literature on Socializing for the workshop to revise as we see fit. If all goes well, we may submit it to the Los Angeles Intergroup for use as literature on its meeting tables.

Our Tools That Help Us Get Better reads in part: “Socializing is a way of breaking down our isolation and getting to know other people in a non-sexual context; at fellowship after meetings; in supportive organizations and groups; and in the community at large.”

This continuing series of workshops is to help retain those new to the Fellowship of SCA, for those seeking a breakthrough in their recovery from compulsive sexual behavior and to help other members move forward in staying sexually sober, through working the Twelve Steps of SCA and using the other Tools of the Program. Please bring your SCA Little Blue Book, a large Spiral bound notebook and pen or pencil, and especially bring any ideas you have for socializing in recovery. We ask a $5.00 donation, to help cover our costs. Net proceeds go to the SCA Los Angeles Intergroup. No one is turned away for lack of funds. The workshop will be conducted in English. We hope to see you there.

We have done workshops on each of the “Twelve Steps of SCA,” and the “Tools That Help Us Get Better.” We are always interested in finding new facilitators to lead workshops, especially workshops we have not done before. Please give us feedback, as to the next workshop you would like to see, or persons in the Southern California region whom you would like to nominate to host a workshop. February brings the SCA Convention, which will take place on President’s Day Weekend. The SCA Convention will have many workshops, to help in your recovery. For more information, go to, and click on “Convention” or “Workshops”. After the SCA Convention, the next workshop will be March 9th. Our deadline to volunteer for a workshop in April is Wednesday, March 13th, because of the lead time necessary for preparation of workshops.
