How The Community Works

Applies to this community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/haccommunity

The Community has three priorities:

  1. Provide a safe learning and discovery space that helps survivors discover life beyond codependency
  2. Connect survivors to useful, effective tools, trainings, and guidance for their healing and happiness
  3. Provide affirming support and witnessing of individuals and their respective journeys

The structure and rules of the Community help make these three priorities a reality for the majority of the members. I say, “majority”, as no community will be 100% safe and effective for all people, all the time.

Below, I outline the structure of The Community, how it works, and the rules that govern it.

You must agree to and follow these rules or you will be removed from the Community.

This applies to members of the Community who are also paying students or clients. Paying for my services does not entitle you to different treatment or exceptions to rules in The Community. You are not entitled to a refund of any purchase due to being removed from The Community.

The Structure Of The Community

The Community:

  1. Individual members are NOT allowed to make individual posts. Members are allowed to comment on posts created by the admin and moderation team per the rules of that particular post.
  2. The Community has 4 primary posts for members to interact on:
    1. The Support Post: This post is where members can share requests for support in their situation and where members reply to those comments with proper support. The rules for how requests and support are offered is outlined in the “Rules For Requesting Support & Replying To Requests” article here:
    2. The Guidance Post: This post is where members can share specific requests for guidance from the Community. Members can reply to each request with their own take on the situation.

  4. The Free Discussion Group:
    1. This is where you can discuss freely any topic, as well as vent, rant, and rave about life. You can access that here: https://fd.freetheself.com
    2. This group is NOT MODERATED by Marshall and his team. Post there are your own risk.

This design helps you consent to what you choose to read and follow in the group; it also gives you exclusive responsibility for what you read, along with any activation you feel, including feeling triggered, offended, or upset. If you find yourself feeling these things while reading a particular post, your work is to regulate and care for yourself. Please do not contact Marshall or his team about these things. Use the tools provided in The Community to help you: Community Tools.

If a comment on a post violates a rule, please REPORT it and Marshall and his team will take care of it. Do not report comments that feel activating to you personally, offend you, or upset you. Only report comments that violate the rules.

If a comment of yours is reported and removed, you will be given notice by Facebook as to what rule the comment violated and what you can do differently. You can always repost your comment once it is revised to fit with the rules. Do not PM or email Marshall or his team about a removed comment of yours. Admin decisions are final.
