Emotional Support Group Meetings 2019

Emotional Support Group meetings will be held for those convicted of a sex offense and their loved ones. This meeting, which is based upon the format of 12 Step meetings, provides registrants and their loved ones with an opportunity to discuss personal challenges and share their experiences, strengths and hopes, with each other.

Attendance is limited to individuals required to register, family members, and friends.

Media, law enforcement, parole, etc. are not allowed to attend meetings.

Meetings are held at:

    I am very interested in creating a similar emotional support group in Florida. Would you consider sharing the format you use? Thank you.

      Alex G at can tell you more about the format. Basically, it is based on the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) 12-Step format without the Higher Power aspect, and with more emphasis on emotional support and anonimity. People who attend are either registrants or family/friends of registrants. It is extremely helpful to listen and share with people who have similar experiences.

      Just follow the guidelines Jews used in 1938 Germany. Meet in secret, don’t tell anyone, and hope the authorities don’t infiltrate or find out, because they will try to stop it.

    What are the “steps” for? How is it that the “12 Steps” model maps on to emotional support? I am only familiar with those steps being used to confront dependencies or addictions. In this case, what is the addiction if, indeed there is any? It would seem to me that the single greatest commonality among registrants is stress and depression. Why not offer instruction and support for mindfulness and meditation, demonstrated to be effective, as a means to alleviate stress and depression?
