Therapy yesterday -safety contract

so in therapy this week we made a safety contract. its not just because of halloween, we made it for our overall general safety. after last weeks session, when we talked about our safety, we had a bit of a reality check. we realised as a system just how much we havent worked on safety. the thought of having to move out of our own home, and live with others, losing our independence really kicked us into high gear about it.
So we worked on it yesterday. We all had a big meeting inside, I chaired it and Eileen helped us facilitate it. It ended up being a really productive meeting. We talked about things like intercepting emails from people from our past, and other things that we could do, such as making sure doors are locked, the house alarm is on, etc. We decided to allow 3 system members to monitor the incoming emails, we’ll all read and make sure that no suspicious emails get through. We made sure the ones reading the emails werent going to be triggered by doing that. We’re also going to set up email rules where certain emails, with certain words in them go directly to our trash folder. We also set up a system where no littles under 13 are allowed to open our front door. We’d never had that rule before, where as we probably should have. Eileen made the point that in a family the adults always open the door, not the kids. So now we’ve put that rule in place it should be easier and better for the whole system. Eileen wrote up all the things we were going to change or do during our session and then she typed it out and sent it to us. We feel much better now that we’ve done this. Maybe now our safety will be less of an issue going forward.
