An ACA chapter 8 workshop “The Next Step”
Learning How to Love Yourself
With Esau Gomez

This workshop addresses issues relating to growing up in a dysfunctional family. The focus is facilitation of chapter 8 exercises from ACA’s Big Red Book, which aims to help individuals shed the inner critical voice they so often walk with in the world and onboard useful beliefs, attitudes, and tools to parent ourselves with positive perspectives and different internal messaging.

About ACA

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA)/Dysfunctional Families is a Twelve StepTwelve Tradition program of men and women who grew up in dysfunctional homes. We meet to share our experience of growing up in an environment where abuse, neglect, and trauma infected us. This affects us today and influences how we deal with all aspects of our lives. ACA provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows us to grieve our childhoods and conduct an honest inventory of ourselves and our family—so we may (i) identify and heal core trauma, (ii) experience freedom from shame and abandonment, and (iii) become our own loving parents.
