Each month, In the Rooms and Seeking Integrity Treatment Centers present an online Super Saturday Recovery Summit. These events have proven to be an overwhelming success, with three experts on recovery discussing and answering questions on topics related to both early and longer-term sobriety and healing.
Our next Super Saturday Recovery Summit is set for Saturday, August 15th. Presenters at this month’s summit include Kelley Gunter, Troy Love, and Dr. Jamie Marich.
Kelley Gunter — Maintaining Sobriety Through the Aftershocks of Childhood Sexual Abuse: A Survivor’s Perspective
1 P.M. Eastern
Kelley Gunter has a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in counseling. Following a lengthy career in social services, she began writing full-time. Her first book, You Have Such a Pretty Face, details the emotional journey of being obese and the surprising changes brought on by her 243-pound weight loss, as well as the emotional factors (including childhood abuse) that contributed to her initial weight gain. She is currently in the process of writing her second memoir, The Homecoming Queen of Crazy Town. In this Super Saturday session, Kelley will discuss how sexual abuse survivors can best navigate sobriety and recovery.
Troy Love — Finding Peace: Healing from Loss, Neglect, Rejection, Abandonment, Betrayal, and Abuse

In this Super Saturday session, Troy continues his presentation from last month’s Summit by examining the voices of shame.
