The following rules and guidelines are meant to protect your privacy and to ensure the safety of the group.
These rules and guidelines are linked in the registration form and check out process when joining this program. In addition, they are linked to and or read aloud during the Healing Book Club Calls. In the event that these rules and guidelines are not linked to or mentioned during each program call, they still apply to all participants regardless.
- Names, nicknames, or initials will be used during group calls.
- Confidentiality is a must for every single participant: you will not discuss any identifying information about a group member except with that member and other group members during group meetings only.
- There will be no visitors during, or recordings of, Book Club meetings allowed, except the recordings provided by Post-Traumatic Healing Foundation, Inc, Daily Recovery Support, CPTSD Learning Center and cptsdfoundation.org.
- There will be no discussion of money, membership fees, or request for monetary support of any kind.
- There will be no discussion of politics or religion unless either is the topic or part of the topic of the current book or chapter being read. If that is the case, the conversation must be kept within the book.
- Healing Book Club meetings and events are never a place to receive crisis care. If you feel triggered or are in crisis, you must seek professional help outside of the weekly book club meetings.
- Healing Book Club is not a support group. It is a place of reading and general discussion of the current resource, and the topics and ideas presented in the resource. If you are interested in a support group atmosphere, please see our Daily Recovery Support Calls.
- Enabling your video camera, cross-talking, speaking over, or being disrespectful or unkind to other group members is strictly prohibited.
- Post-Traumatic Healing Foundation, Inc, Daily Recovery Support, CPTSD Learning Center, Healing Book Club and cptsdfoundation.org may remove you from any call at any time if any of the guidelines are not adhered to.
- If you have a concern about a Healing Book Club call, you must use the contact form on the website to share your concern, and an appropriate staff member will respond to you directly. No concerns about the Healing Book Club are to be addressed publicly, on a Healing Book Club call, in a CPTSD Foundation group, social media, or any other outlet other than the contact form.
- CPTSD Foundation is not crisis care. If you are in crisis, please reach out to an online or local crisis resource, or to your medical or mental health provider.
- The schedule for the Healing Book Club is subject to change without notice, including the unlikely need to cancel a call.
- If you are removed for any reason listed above, no refund will be issued to you, as you are required to follow all group guidelines at all times or you forfeit your right to a refund.
