The Norma J. Morris Center for healing from child abuse is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that created the ASCA SM program.

In 1993, The Morris Center's Leadership Council – a team of seasoned therapists and community volunteers – designed and launched the first of several ASCA SM meetings in the San Francisco Bay Area. Over the years, we have continued to update and evolve the ASCA SM program.

In 1999, The Morris Center embarked on a bold experiment. We decided to host all ASCA SM materials on this website ( Individuals and organizations may download and use any materials they consider helpful to their recovery.
The ASCA program is supported solely through private contributions and receives no government funding.
In addition to the ASCA SM program, The Morris Center also offers:
  • Training and mentoring for ASCA SM group co-facilitators
  • Special workshops and conferences
  • Educational presentations
