We are just a few weeks away from hosting our first support group meeting for the loved ones of sex workers here in Phoenix. The model at this point will be like typical health-support group model where we start with introductions, then listen to a brief speaker who shares his or her experience (it may be an "expert" on sex work or a parent whose child is/was in the industry or someone who left the industry). Then we'll open the room for sharing.
We have permission to use the 12 Steps and model the AA concept (like Alanon and Naranon do) but I am waiting until we begin to see how the model should work. Keep checking back for our first meeting. I am still contacting churches and other places for meeting space but hope to have a date set by next week. Until then, keep the faith.
