e) Research and Development of Current and New Projects – Some of these were approved by the delegates at the ABC. Other pieces are developed, as they are needed. They include:
i) The Twelve Step Workbook expansion (current)
ii) ACA Service Manual (from BRB Section III)
iii) ACA’s Oral History & Online Archives – This involves interviewing those who were instrumental in starting ACA – many of whom are 70 years old and older. Larry is particularly interested in pursuing this project while these adult children are still available and willing to be interviewed.
iv) “ACAs and Their Bodies” – We are looking for authors who have an understanding of ACA steps and trauma body recovery to write “ACAs and Their Bodies”. We would especially like to get the medical community’s input in writing or overseeing the writing of trauma-recovery literature. Plans to combine “ACAs and Their Bodies”, and “The Basic Five & Six Essential Tasks” into one piece were abandoned because of copyright issues.
v) “Many Cultures: One ACA” – This was envisioned to begin in 2016-2017. We are nowhere near starting that project. Aspects of ACA cultures include:
(a) Minority communities
(b) Adolescents (young adults, and even children).
(c) Global communities
(d) “Golden Years” – older adult children. Some are older and new to ACA; others have been in the program for a long time
(e) Excerpting the BRB chapter about ACA Teens, many of these younger people do not see themselves or their experiences reflected in ACA literature.
