The ASCA programme is a science-based, self-help programme designed to help adult survivors of childhood abuse (emotional, physical or sexual abuse). The programme uses a psychological model based on trauma therapy, developmental theory, attachment theory and ego strengthening. Many community-based meetings in the US, ones formed by trauma survivors, run the ASCA programme. The programme has been available in this way in the US since the 1990s.
There are now a handful of meetings outside the US. Your Wellbeing Journey CIC supported the creation of the first regular community ASCA meeting in Europe in 2020. ASCA London currently holds a meeting open to all adult Survivors each Friday (see below for details). The meeting is based in London but is held online and so available to anyone living outside of the UK too.

The Morris Centre is a charity based in the US. They designed the ASCA programme in the early 1990s. For more information about ASCA, and other community ASCA meetings in other locations, please visit the Morris Centre's ASCA website.
