8pm EST, 5pm PAC
SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC:  “Battered Women's and Children's Custody Conference: A National Crisis” ~~ Tonight we'll discuss the institutional perpetuation of victimization in the family/divorce court system, and the need for a new message of advocacy for women and children. We will talk about the state of the family court, litigants and the court, and about evidence and expert witnesses. The 13th Annual Battered Mothers Custody Conference took place in Albany, New York, on May 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2018. The theme of this year's conference was 'Custody Litigation, Trauma, and Recovery.' The conference is an annual weekend event dedicated to educating professionals and the general public about the serious legal and psychological challenges faced by battered women who seek protection for themselves and their children from the family/divorce court system. The conference aims to inform, support, and advocate for survivors of abuse within the legal arena. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues..

Her book 'The Shelf Life of a Secret' is a real-life account of abuse, addiction, resiliency, and self-awareness. "Months after I was born, my father walked out on our family," she writes. "At eight, I was sexually molested by my step-father. After two years of abuse, I told my mother but instead of believing me, she defended him and remained with him until his death. These three experiences frame my childhood of perfect hell—one that lined a path of fear, shame, and eventual route to courage."

Tonight's special guest is Johnny Rock from New Orleans, Louisiana, a child abuse survivor and an activist. An actor professionally, Johnny is an advocate and public speaker for both children and adult survivors of childhood abuse. He's excited to be a NAASCA family member. "The timing is perfect," he says. "I'm also interested in holding Recovery Group meetings in the New Orleans area ASAP. I've already downloaded all of the materials, set up an e-mail address and am scouting for a location." He explains, "I am an adult survivor of numerous forms of childhood abuse." Johnny goes on, "I am currently producing a documentary called Victim to Victor - Surviving Child Abuse and have just begun working on a book with the same title. I look forward to standing side by side with each and every one of you." Johnny speaks from experience, "The first memory I have of my mother is a vivid nightmarish image that plays in the theater of my mind like it was yesterday. I must have been maybe in 1st or 2nd grade. She was chasing me down the hallway with a butcher knife screaming the words “I'll kill you, you son of a bitch”. He goes on, "She would call me a sissy and forcefully put my sisters dress on me and push me out of the front door for the neighbors at the school bus stop to see. I wanted to die." Johnny understands NAASCA's mission. "Anything that harms children has a trickle down effect for generations." He concludes, "Abused children are at far higher risks level for suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, or victims of further sexual exploitation, or crimes. We as a society need to help survivors in every way possible."

Special guest Alex Oleksij
Wednesday
05/23/2018
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Alex Oleksij (aka: Roman Alexander) from Nutley, New Jersey, director of  David Harrower's acclaimed and award-winning play 'Blackbird,' which is now headed for Off-Broadway and has been extended for a three week run. The cast will be joining us, too. The two person drama deals with a 27 year old woman, abused as a child (played by Gina Sarno), confronting her predator (played by Nick Pascarella). The complex experiences of sexual abuse are seen from multiple points of view. Through the darkness of conversation, one is forced into uneasy emotions. But, unlike sexual abuse victims, the audience gets to walk away thinking, but unscathed. Alex says, while he is not a survivor himself, it was through his work with ‘Blackbird' that he became aware of how widespread the horrendous phenomenon of child sexual abuse is. He now is using his work in theater to advocate in hopes of keeping the conversation going and to help spread awareness of the damage caused by sexual abuse. To do so, the Rockland County Welcome Committee Charitable Organization, a (501(c)(3), is now sponsoring the special Off-Broadway limited three week run of ‘Blackbird.' The production is a means of bringing the conversation of sexual abuse into the spotlight and public donations are being requested to help support the enormous costs of this production to spread the message. Please join in that discussion with us tonight for an opportunity to hear from the director and cast of ‘Blackbird' and hear more about this project and ways you can be involved!

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC:  “Battered Women's and Children's Custody Conference: A National Crisis” ~~ Tonight we'll discuss the institutional perpetuation of victimization in the family/divorce court system, and the need for a new message of advocacy for women and children. We will talk about the state of the family court, litigants and the court, and about evidence and expert witnesses. The 13th Annual Battered Mothers Custody Conference took place in Albany, New York, on May 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2018. The theme of this year's conference was 'Custody Litigation, Trauma, and Recovery.' The conference is an annual weekend event dedicated to educating professionals and the general public about the serious legal and psychological challenges faced by battered women who seek protection for themselves and their children from the family/divorce court system. The conference aims to inform, support, and advocate for survivors of abuse within the legal arena. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.

Special guest Donna Mickens Sylvester

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Donna Mickens Sylvester from Atlanta, Georgia, a returning member of the NAASCA family and a Licensed Practical Nurse who's been in the health care field since 1985. Donna will be telling here story on our show for the second time. She and her older sister were both sexually assaulted by a cousin as youngsters. Donna shares. "I can remember vividly how my abuser would come into my room, put a pillow over my face and rape me," Donna shares. "I suffered in silence for years and when I told family members they said I was lying .. until my sister confessed that it happened to her, too." Donna got married secretly at 18 to escape her family and their home, where her molester would visit. She barely knew her new husband, and certainly didn't love him. Hers was a marriage of convenience. He needed a path to citizenship and she needed to get out of her parent's house. Donna was overprotective of her two daughters, in constant contact with them even after they'd grown older and went off to college. Donna says her fear of them being assaulted or raped caused an unfortunate distance between she and her kids. But, she reports, there's been no love lost with her own birth family. She goes on, "I have hated my blood relatives for years and still do. I have been treated wrongly by this family." Many who share with us describe a disappointing reaction and lack of support from those from whom they'd most like to get it .. their family and closest friends. Fortunately NAASCA members provide a new 'family' through which we establish a new support system. Donna explains, "I call myself the invisible child. I was, and still am, an introvert. I have alot to say. I also went through a period of depression in my early adulthood. But, she concludes, "I have a strong mind and will."

Tonight's special guest is Lakell Maxwell, an Atlanta, Georgia, native who is a child sexual abuse survivor, activist, and blogger. She is now serving as NAASCA's Ambassador to South Carolina and we're looking forward to having her on the show for the first time. Lakell is the oldest of 4 siblings. When she was 11 years old, her stepfather molested her during a car trip to a talent agency. She says in her blog, “Being molested not only changed my life but the way I would think from that day forward.” Lakell also was deeply affected when she learned that one of her nephews had been molested for years at an early age by a babysitter. She says, “I've watched him experience the same struggles I've experienced growing up as a victim of child molestation myself. I wanted to help him now.” So Lakell made a commitment to writing and sharing the life lessons she lives through daily as a S.A.S (Sexual Abuse Survivor). No longer a victim, she now celebrates what she calls her annual “survivorversary” and encourages other survivors of child abuse to do so through her blogs, journaling classes, and open discussions. Lakell serves as a life coach and offers a number of services including her 'Listening Session with Lakell' tool which gives people feeling stressed, depressed, or overwhelmed a compassionate person to talk to. Lakell says, “My purpose here on earth is to teach love, build self and free souls through my writings. My prayer is that you leave more empowered than you showed up.” Join us to give Lakell a warm welcome to NAASCA and gain encouragement from her story!

Tonight's special guest is Rachel Grant from San Francisco, California, a child abuse survivor and returning NAASCA family member. She's a counselor and Sexual Abuse and Trauma Recovery Coach at Rachel Grant Coaching. Abused as a child by her grandfather in Oklahoma, Rachel provides a compassionate and challenging approach for her clients, using coaching as opposed to therapeutic models to help survivors of childhood sexual abuse let go of the pain of abuse and finally feel normal. As Rachel says, "What you think, you create!" She brings to the table a passionate belief that her clients do not have to remain trapped or confronted daily by the thoughts or behaviors that result from abuse. For her, how we are relating to others is crucial to improving the overall quality of our lives. Her program, Beyond Surviving, has been specifically designed to change the way we think about and heal from abuse. Rachel writes, "The Beyond Surviving program is based on what I have learned through my own journey of recovery from sexual abuse, my study of neuroscience, and my training in counseling psychology. I have given much thought to the structure and content of the program so that my clients can reach the recovery goals they set in a way that is approachable and straightforward." She goes on to explain, "We use my guidebook, Beyond Surviving: The Final Stage in Recovery from Sexual Abuse as the roadmap for our work. Each month, we cover a few of the lessons from the guidebook and I bring in additional reflections and exercises for each session." She points out, "Ultimately you are in the driver's seat, and we prioritize our work based on your needs."

In her early childhood, Christina was raised by a physically abusive mother who was addicted to heroin and gave her up to foster care before she was 14 years old.

Christina believes in service through accountability in her communities. Today she works with local non-profits, organizations, religious affiliations and legislation to deter predators from harming today's youth. Christina has been a facilitator for the community education and sexual abuse prevention program, Darkness to Light Stewards of Children Training, and was a contributing writer for the book Trigger Points: Abuse Survivors Experiences of Parenting about survivors breaking the generational cycle of child abuse.

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Joy T.J. Riley from Baltimore, Maryland, a returning NAASCA family member and child abuse survivor whose abuse began nearly from birth by a relative. Joy was also molested by a baby sister and two other relatives and has lived through domestic abuse and adult rape. Now her focus is on healing through writing, speaking, community work, and her faith. Joy says, "My trauma of sexual abuse began not long out of my mother's womb by a relative. I didn't remember much at first. It took years before understanding I suffered from PTSD. It took many years before I understood there were long term effects. I was angry because in nearly all the cases, authority figures abused their authority over me. It was the last occurrence that pushed me into writing as a way to cope with all the emotions." Joy began writing at age eleven to channel feelings she could not express in spoken word due to child abuse. Now she writes about what it's like for survivors not just as children but about the journey of healing. Joy says, “I had to go back and remember everything I felt. It was painful but I'm in a better place." Currently, she is an activist and radio show host of "Get Your JOY In The Morning" and a contributing writer for Divine Voice Magazine. She is also involved with "Safe Shores – The D.C. Children's Advocacy Center," a direct service nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and working with child victims of sexual and physical abuse. In addition, Joy is the author of two books and a playwrite.

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Mary Havens from Wasilla, Alaska, a child abuse survivor and new member of the NAASCA who's planning on volunteering for us, perhaps as an Ambassador. She's quite impressed with the web site and radio shows. Mary has spoken, presented and testified all over the country, and is is author of "The Shadows in My Heart." The book details events that will be all too familiar to some and unfamiliar to others, but will pull at everyone's heartstrings. Mary describes growing-up one of 12 children on a picturesque farm in what may have looked to outsiders like the happy chaos of a large Mid-West American family. However, behind the scenes Mary's youth was filled with unresolved grief, abuse, religious dogma, and secrets that left her in the shadows feeling lost and alone. More than the terrible abuse though, her story is one of determination, survival, and the ability to rise above the fray. Written with an impressive candor, "The Shadows in My Heart" is an inherently engaging read from beginning to end and will prove to be an enduringly popular and appreciated addition to both community and academic library Contemporary American Biography collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "The Shadows in My Heart" is also available in a digital book format. Please join us by calling-in for what is sure to be an inspiring evening on the show!

Special guest Pamela Olson
Wednesday
04/18/2018
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Pamela Olson from Sacramento, California, a Therapist and Activist who is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and trafficking. Pamela was molested and raped from age 3 to 17 by an uncle. She disclosed the abuse to her parents but they told her she was “a whore and more then likely 'made it happen.'” Pamela's parents divorced when she was 12 after which her mother struggled financially and she was then sex-trafficked from age 14-16 by her mother. Pamela's husband was the first person she disclosed to actually helped her, and their relationship has been a huge factor in healing from her traumatic childhood. She recently founded SaveOurChildrenCA (SOC), an organization aimed at dismantling and overriding the current governmental systems and laws that “interfere with the family unit” (i.e. CPS, public schools, FDA, CDC, medical fields), and supporting parents with legal funds to fight “false claims of abuse” made against them. SOC aims to educate the public about “child trafficking, CPS abuses, family law court abuses, medical kidnapping and pedosadism” and to work with legislators to create bills to protect children but also “will uphold our constitutional rights and freedoms.” "I was a victim, turned survivor," she says. "I wanted to go after sex child trafficking first. God had other plans. Through CPS and FCP Group homes I've discovered child trafficking, severe abuses and neglect." Pamela recently said of sharing her story that, since starting SOC, “.. I've not talked about my own experience with sex abuse out loud into the mainstream alt media. Perhaps speaking aloud to it will help many understand why I advocate on the all the topics I do?”

His support of the Brook Altman case, recently discussed on NAASCA, has been a vital part of the strategy directed at correcting a wrongful custody transfer that never should have taken place. Sebastian's participation in drawing attention to the wrongful actions of many judges on the New York bench has made him a powerful ally to Protective Parents seeking a voice in New York courts .. where voices are too often silenced. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.

Tonight's special guest is Valerie Swinnerton from Bremerton, Washington, a newcomer to NAASCA and survivor of neglect, emotional, and mental abuse. Valerie says, "It seems that, in the last few years, my childhood experiences have been rushing back into my brain." Recalling at only 6 years old being expected to care for herself and being “socially ostracized in and outside my family circle, even when I tried to commit suicide (at age 15),” she goes on to say, “When my mother found out she had a tantrum and told my father to make me “stop hurting her.” He told me to quit upsetting my mother.” Valerie's narcissistic mother admitted withholding love claiming, “the reason she didn't love me or even hugged me and made me fend for myself was to prepare me for my future. She said that no one will ever love me so why not get use to being alone because that was my fate.” Valerie admits that, “On my dark days I think she was correct.” This toxic relationship with her mother continued into Valerie's adult life with boundaries violated and interference in relationships with family and her children. Valerie describes, “She told my eldest daughter that I wasn't her mother and that I hated her and would kill her. We moved to Washington state to escape her abuse.” Valerie later divorced from a marriage she says “nearly destroyed her,” and as a single woman is currently raising her sister's three children in addition to her own three children. She says one of the biggest challenges is, “trying to protect them from my parents.” We are honored to have Valerie on our show, and invite her NAASCA family to call in with support and encouragement as she tells her story for the first time.

JoAnn is an expert on the  link between childhood obesity and CSA and has worked for several state and national level programs for prevention of childhood obesity.

Special guest Cynthia Lackner

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Cynthia Lackner, MA in Psychology, from Denver, Colorado. She is an expert on the effects of trauma, brain injury, stress, and substance abuse,  and has presented in many prestigious arenas including to medical, legal, psychology, and education professionals. She has created and implemented programs and workshops on making life changes to thrive rather than just exist. She promotes the belief, “True health is not the absence of disease; it's about the presence of vitality." In her private practice, Cynthia focuses on stress-free living working with people all over the country who experienced incest, sexual abuse, and domestic abuse. To mask pain from trauma some people self-medicate with alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, food and other substances. She points out, "Often people don't feel worthy, competent, powerful, and able to love or be loved back. They're living with anger, sadness, disappointment, fear, shame, and guilt." Cynthia uses a science-based technique called Emotional Brain Training to teach survivors how to rewire their emotional-brain to reduce effects of being triggered. She also co-produced a documentary for PBS called "Respect Me" about dating violence prevention. Her message to tonight's listeners is, "I hear about people's struggles. They are real. We dive deep into the root cause of their stress."  She concludes,  “What I offer is hope. I help people see what they can do to bring about changes, to make their lives work better. They get clarity about what is keeping them from living the life they envisioned. From there, they can make good decisions.”

Special guest Patricia Rettig
Wednesday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Patricia (Patsy) Rettig from Bayonne, New Jersey, a survivor of neglect and severe physical and emotional abuse joining us for the first time. After 27 years, she has completed a memoir entitled 'Patty's Turn; Surviving the Tidal Waves of Abuse.' The book describes growing up one of 14 children in a home that “never seemed to be enough of anything, clothes, food, bedding, etc.” and with a mother who was so violent Patsy ended up hospitalized. In addition, she suffered physical abuse by siblings and witnessed her parents ongoing fighting. The result was living with constant fear as a young child which became anger and rebellion as a teenager. Her first marriage was to an abusive alcoholic who and later she had another relationship that was so abusive she almost did not survive. However, Patsy's story is one with a light at the end of the tunnel. "Although it is my story of decades of abuse," she says, "I share my story in hope of empowering other women to live a better life and gain their self-worth." Patsy found the motivation to turn things around through her children. She was able to break the chain of abuse and has now been happily married for 12 years. She is a proud mother and grandchildren stating, “life is filled with faith, peace, love, and happiness,” as she focuses on her art and writing. Patsy has already written a second book entitled ‘Woven Webs and the Metal Box' which is soon to be released. We want to welcome Patsy to the NAASCA family and invite listeners to call in to join in the discussion as Patsy shares more of her inspirational story.

Wednesday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Michelle Bless from Cincinnati, Ohio, a returning NAASCA family member who's a survivor, activist, Minister and NAASCA volunteer. She's the author of the book "Out of Darkness: the Michelle Bless Story" in which a young girl is abused by her family and ostracized for being associated with Satan. "Out of the Darkness" is her story of redemption. Born in the northeastern United States to parents from the Caribbean, Michelle was raised in a home of violence and suspicion. Her father beat her mother and siblings but spared Michelle because of her perceived association with Satan. Even so, this did not save her from other abuses. She witnessed incidents of violence, incest and other horrible, unthinkable acts. One hot summer day in 1997, Michelle writes, she, "was introduced to the Lord and denounced Satan," thus beginning the process of giving her life to God. After two years of demonic attacks, she was fully delivered and never looked back. Today she lives for the Lord. Michelle says her firsthand knowledge of how low a life can plummet to the depths of despair enables her to understand and relate to what others are facing as they struggle to find God in their lives. Michelle is on a mission to bring as many lost souls to God as possible. She often participates as a volunteer and family member at NAASCA, and over time has contributed many appearances as a panelist for the "Stop Child Abuse Now" talk show.

Tonight's special guest is Krystal Johnson from Moore, Oklahoma, a youth pastor's wife and author who writes with a focus to help children who have been sexually traumatized feel safe physically, mentally, and emotionally to share their story with a trusted parent or adult. Although Krystal is not a survivor of childhood abuse, she has helped kids who have been sexually traumatized start their recovery process, has family members who have experienced childhood sexual trauma, and as a college student she suffered rape at the hands of 2 classmates. Krystal describes how those experiences have deeply motivated her, “Just watching them go through their journey stumbling along and not getting the help that they need has made me want to help children as early and as soon as I can.” Krystal has now completed a children's book soon to be released to the public titled "My Mila and Me -- Healing Childhood Trauma One Kid, One Family, At A Time" with the intent to help both sexually abused children and their parents. Krystal elaborates, "Often we as parents get so caught up in life and relationships that we don't see what's going on right in front of our faces.” She goes on, “It breaks my heart to know that children are scared, terrified even, to speak up .. trying to get past their trauma, on their own.” Krystal hopes the book will, “help to provide that safe place for children to tell their story.”

Tonight's special guest is Charles (Chuck) Prinzen from Fairfield, California, a returning NAASCA family member. A survivor and activist, Chuck is an educator who's worked with youth for many years. His 'Me Inc Now' project offers guidance to teens (and their parents). In fact, he's scheduled to be the Keynote Speaker at Banning Hight School on March 23rd in front of the Los Angeles Unified School Board (LAUSB). Chuck says that he survived 'cycles of life' and says his story of abuse is no different than many others who have experienced abuse .. the same torment, pain, feelings of loneliness and despair. "It was not till I was older that I could clearly see the past. They say that hindsight is twenty-twenty, mine was not, it was blurry." He goes on, "The first step to seeing the past clearly was when a kindhearted gift of love was given to me by a stranger." Chuck's principal goal to help instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today's youth, and that's that 'Me.Inc.Now' (me expressing I need change now) is all about. A brighter future can be achieved by incorporating cultural change in our youth of today through understanding lessons of the past to bridge the ever growing generation gap. Change is built upon a foundation of communication, listening, and love. 'Me.Inc.Now' is committed to inspiring positive thoughts and breaking cycles of anger and resentment that prevent young individuals from being the best version of themselves. "I am thankful for learning that 'love' is most the powerful tool in my emotional toolbox," Chuck writes, "no more sorrow and loneliness, no more bruises, no more pain, no more fear."

He's also an internationally renowned journalist and documentary film maker. The FCLU works tirelessly to represent parents whose rights are being compromised by judicial overreach, deprivation of due process and equal access to courts, among many other acts of malfeasance. They work on issues of coercion, compulsion and suspicion of Cash for Kids. We'll ask Sebastian about the process of assessment, intervention, action plans and outcomes. Jill reminds us that her organization, the FCVFC, ".. considers of the utmost importance, that children know that their parents are fighting for them. What may not appear as of significant impact in the moment, becomes of great meaning with twenty / twenty hindsight." ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.

Tonight's special guest is Dr. Laura Jean McGuire from New York City, a nationally recognized sexuality educator, trauma-informed specialist, and inclusion consultant who has worked with young adult survivors as well as teen parents struggling to break the cycle of abuse. Although not a survivor of child abuse, Laura did survive domestic violence. Her personal experiences and her work with others has led her to see connections between all forms of abuse. She now has made the goal of “creating a trauma-informed, culturally humble, and gender equitable world is my life's ambition and calling.” NAASCA's family members, mostly survivors, also include many activists and professionals who are a valuable part of the organization. They lend us their own specific experience, strength and hope. We're delighted to have their professional expertise, and they, in turn, learn a lot from survivors! Dr. Laura is glad for the opportunity to interview with NAASCA stating, "NAASCA is an incredible organization doing vital and very pertinent work as to what is going on in cultural discussions right now." Laura continues, "I feel so blessed to know that every day I am working towards being part of the solution instead of the problem." We invite all our NAASCA family to call in with questions or comments for Dr. Laura, as we talk about creating trauma-informed sex/prevention education and having a healthy sex/love life after childhood trauma. Laura has an ongoing column called “Ask Dr. Laura” in 'Out Smart: Houston's LGBTQ Magazine' where she openly addresses sexuality questions while promoting gender equity, queer competency, and cultural humility.

Tonight's special guest is Lorna Littner, LMSW, MS (Public Health), from New York City, a new member of the NAASCA family appearing on the show for the first time. We know it won't be her last! A survivor of sexually abused by her grandfather when she was 12, she's now a professional. "I was able use the therapy I was involved in when I was in my early 20's to do recovery work on these events," she says. "I am sure that this history motivated me into the helping / teaching professions." Lorna invites listeners to call in with questions as she talks about sexuality education and its links to prevention education. Lorna has taught Adolescent Sexuality & Pregnancy Prevention as well as Family Life & Human Sexuality education education courses. She is currently a teaching consult for Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Science. Her recent article, posted to the NAASCA web site, is Seize the Day: Time to illuminate the issue of child sexual abuse. It brings to light the lack of attention on the problem of child abuse even during a time when society is starting to more openly discuss sexual harassment/abuse of adults. Lorna makes clear what some of the major problems are including children socialized to view females in submissive roles to males, institutions ignoring the improper behavior, availability and access to pornography, and delayed time between the abuse and disclosure. Lorna emphasizes the solutions must focus on prevention, “As a society, our default modus operandi is to be reactive, and only respond to problems after they have occurred. Let us change that. It is time for us, finally, to be proactive when it comes to child sexual abuse." We're delighted to welcome Lorna, a survivor / professional, as an active volunteer NAASCA family member!

Special guest Carol Damron
Friday
03/09/2018
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Carol Damron from Toledo, Ohio, a survivor of severe childhood sexual abuse by multiple predators and in many situations. The abuse started as early as Carol's first childhood memories of being abused at 3 years old by two of her uncles and then at 4 years old by another family member while she lived with her Aunt. It's important to Carol that people understand how being abused, “changes you as a person. Especially when victims are so young.” She next lived with her father only to suffer more sexual abuse by the son of her father's friend and neighbors. When her mother remarried it only brought more sexual predators into her life and she was suffered abuse by her step-brothers, a step-Uncle, and a step-nephew. Carol went to her mother for help several times about the abuse, but her mother only accused her of lying. At 15 she was also the victim of a date rape and later was raped by a boyfriend's friend. After being victimized so many times, Carol states, “It's like once you've been hurt that way, there is a sign for all the world's predators to see, like a lighthouse.” Being unprotected from her abusers and having her trust violated so many times left Carol feeling abandoned, fear, small and unloved, and broken. She developed a stutter that children bullied her about in school, and in her adult life has dealt with PTSD, mood disorders, depression, and suicidal thoughts. But Carol's doing better now and bravely sharing her story to advocate for other victims. My friends ask me, "Carol, how can you be so kind to people after all you've been through?" I tell them, "Because I know how sad feels. And it sucks." We're glad to have Carol as a new member of the NAASCA family.

Special guest Sequoya Griffin
Wednesday
03/07/2018
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Sequoya Griffin from Charlotte, North Carolina, a survivor of childhood trauma who entered the foster care system at 4 years old and was later adopted at 10. She's the author of "Goodbye, SaraJane: A Foster Child Writes Letters to Her Mother," described as the honest, heartbreaking story of an abused child's horrid experience. Her life in foster care was a terrible existence of emotional, physical, and racial abuse that was a continual ordeal of lies, beatings, and punishments by adults in the foster system. From the caseworker lacking empathy and turning a blind eye to the physical and emotional damages Sequoya and her siblings suffered by adults and foster siblings that went ignored, her story sheds light on some of the major failures of the current child protective service system in the United States. The emotional toll of being taken from one abusive family only to be placed with another was unbearable, and she had the experience of what sadly many foster children do of losing everything meaningful. Even her birth name was taken from her, and Sequoya says it best in her book that her adoptive mother "had slowly snatched my identity away from me." Currently, Sequoya is an advocate for neglected children and vulnerable young adults with a passion to continue bringing awareness to all aspects of the foster care and adoption system. Besides writing literature and music, Sequoya finds hope and strength as a survivor through her spirituality. She is the founder of Key Purpose Books LLC, a book and media publishing company of God-given stories.

Special guest Malisia McKinney
Friday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Malisia (Mia) McKinney from Jasper, Indiana, a returning NAASCA family member who's back to talk about her most recent work. Mia is a child abuse survivor of physical and sexual abuse and poisoning who advocates for other survivors through her writing. She recently authored a 12 Step Workbook for Survivors of Sexual Abuse, certainly one valid approach to healing. She also manages the Truth Seekers Facebook page, and is the CEO and Co-Founder at Advocate Alliance. Mia kept the secrets of her abuse hidden until the age of 34. "My mother used to say to me, 'If you tell anyone they will take you away and kill you. They will believe your evil and (you) made me do it!' I grew up thinking people would hate me if I told." Since disclosing her abuse Mia shares, "When we hold the secrets of abuse it pours out in many aspects of our lives." Now she encourages other survivors to find a healthy support system where it is possible to disclose and discuss abuse and recovery. “Telling is healing,” she states. “It's so important to have our pain validated because for so long we had to pretend it wasn't happening to survive." She goes on, "Remember, you are not alone. There is a group of courageous men and women survivors on the same journey who will gladly take your hand and lead you out of that cage. We spent our childhood carrying someone else's secrets and lies, but as adults we can unpack what doesn't belong to us and embrace life on our terms without fear.”

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guests are Isabel Morales and Viviana Galvis from Bogotá, Colombia. Isabel, 35 years old, suffered abuse by a person very close to her starting when she was 4, and this abuse continued for years. She began therapy in her teens and continues in her path of recovery today, learning to live with the lifetime affects of the abuse including borderline disorder and depression. Viviana is an activist and filmmaker currently living in Texas. Both women are part of the project team 'Say It Out Loud,' an organization formed by filmmakers and other professionals seeking to raise awareness and prevention of child sexual abuse through a series of short educational videos teaching children what to do in different risk situations. Vivian describes a national crisis of abuse happening in Columbia including the recent arrest of a rapist who abused over 500 children and one of the most infamous serial killers, Luis Alfredo Garavito, who raped and murdered over 140 children. Vivian states, “Many people around me have suffered this trauma for generations.” She continues, “This is a problem that needs to be addressed. Unfortunately since the justice system is so weak in our country a lot of abusers go unnoticed or get released from prison 10 or 15 years later.” There is currently a GoFundMe account for contributions to the 'Say It Out Loud' project and a Youtube video with more information.

Tonight's special guests are Laura M Parks and Scott MacDonald from Chandler, Arizona. Laura is a returning NAASCA member who's a survivor of child abuse and domestic violence and has written several books, and Scott is her college friend and partner in the grassroots effort, 'End of Innocence Project.' Together they are working to reduce the incidence of sexual harassment and sexual assault, and raising awareness of the root causes. Laura says of her childhood experiences, "By my teen years I didn't know which way was up.” She was brutally raped by her older brother, molested regularly and beaten by her father and emotionally abused by her mother, leading Laura down a very destructive path in her early adult life. She says, “I made some bad decisions and the cycle of abuse continued," until she decided, "enough is enough." Laura says her message to survivors is to stop considering themselves victims. "If I did it, so can you. We don't have to stay victims, we can all become survivors." Scott, a math professor and software engineer, is not a survivor himself. He was moved to start the 'End of the Innocence Project Facebook Group' after learning a former coworker had been raped and beaten. For info or to join the project team, listeners are invited to send an email. Listeners are also invited to contact Laura with public speaking engagement opportunities.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: "The Family Court Embraces / Canonizes Fraud and Cash For Kids" ~~ Brooke Altman, a four time Emmy winner, never imagined that in 2011, when her child was three and a half years old, a court would transfer her biological child into the hands of her partner, Allison Scollar, Esq, on the basis of false allegations and a fraud perpetrated on the court by her lawyers, in conjunction with court actors. In Nov. 2017, Allison was sentenced on four felonies for money laundering and theft of funds from her own law firm escrow account. The time-line of the thefts support statements of associates of Allison Scollar who relate that funds were stolen and then passed to intermediaries who were themselves tasked with paying court actors and a Forensic psychologist to arrange for the transfer of custody from the biological and protective parent, Brooke, to her former partner, Allison. Following the sentencing a new phrase pervades the airways, “criminal conviction has no relevance to parenting.” Apparently felony convictions are irrelevant. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.

Special guest Tom Livingston
Friday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Tom Livingston from Arizona, a new NAASCA family member telling his story for the first time. Tom is a survivor of severe physical abuse and witnessed frequent domestic violence by his alcoholic father who also sexually abused all four of his sisters and at least two girls outside of the family. Although his father did not molest him, Tom was scarred by seeing first-hand some of the sexual abuse of his sisters, and he was treated inappropriately such as being given porn magazines, alcohol, exploiting him through hard labor, and with sexualized conversation. When he was 11 years old an incident happened changing everything. Tom says, "my father was out of his mind drunk and was going to kill all us kids with a shotgun." Tom's oldest sister snuck them out in the middle of the night going to their mother's work and giving an ultimatum: leave with us or never see us again. As a teen Tom lived between several family members homes. He started using drugs and alcohol at the age of 10, dropped out of high school, and was arrested several times for juvenile misdemeanors. By age 26 he decided to change his behavior to start a family, "I didn't want my son around drugs and violence like I had growing up," Tom says, "I've been forcing it by focusing on being a different man than my father was, but it's been a constant struggle." Tom's wife is also a survivor, “sometimes that has been a challenge, but we have empathy for each other.” Now at 47 years old, "It has been a rough road and I've seen the effects of abuse on all my family and my wife's family when some have talked about things and others don't deal with it or talk about it. I don't think keeping the secrets works, and sharing my story now is a big step of my own recovery."

Special guest Megan Erin Galloway
Wednesday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Megan Erin Galloway from Lincoln City, Oregon, a child abuse survivor and author of the book "Pieces: Help for Your Life Journey," which offers hope and help for those who have lost hope due to childhood abuse, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, fear, and/or depression. Megan's 'credentials' for writing this book are 63 years of pain, fear, depression, and anxiety – and an incredible seven years of growth, expansion, happiness, and joy. We'll be asking Megan about her life throughout the show, starting with her youth. The first chapter of her book, 'Pieces,' which is largely autobiographical, consists of a series of notes she recorded throughout the middle years of her life. Following each note she explains the circumstances of her life that lead to writing the note, and provides help and hope for those who can readily identify with, or remember, similar types of experiences in their lives and are looking for a way out of the darkness and fear. The remaining two chapters show Megan's progression as she found her 'self,' started picking up the broken pieces of her life, reviewed events and people throughout her journey, gradually healed and pieced herself together, and opened up to a glorious new viewpoint and an enlightened outlook. Megan shares her journey with others who experience feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, so they don't have to search as long as she did to find the hope and help they need.

Tonight's special guest is Terri Lanahan from Butte, Montana, an adult survivor of child abuse, incest, sibling abuse and domestic abuse. Now she's NAASCA secretary and coordinates our new Ambassador program. Terri grew up with ah alcoholic father, and an especially violent mother. "I watched her pull knives and guns on my dad," she says. At the same time she suffered violent abuse at the hands of her older brother. When she was 3, Terri began to be sexually abused by her babysitting uncle. "I started drinking and doing drugs at the beginning of my teen years," Terri tells me. "At 15 I began to be molested by another uncle. Also at 15 I cut my wrist." She continues, "I told my mom about the earlier molestation. She said she knew something had happened to me, and thought it was my dad. I couldn't get past the thought that she knew and did nothing to stop it." Terri would go on to attempt suicide several times. She married at 18 and quickly had children, briefly sobering up for the pregnancies. "At 26 I had my first flashback which led me to jail and then finally to treatment," Terri says. "I thought I was losing my mind. They put words to my insanity. I began to talk about the abuse." It took a while, but she now has what she describes as 'an amazing life'. She gives back in numerous ways. Her poetry has been well received on Facebook and she's author of the book 'Hear My Voice'. "I am a voice for the voiceless," she says. "My biggest struggle was always the isolation, so I want others to know they don't have to go through this alone. There is help and hope. Please reach out and tell somebody."

Special guest Patty Lovelace
Friday
02/02/2018
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Patty Lovelace, from Liverpool, Pennsylvania, a child abuse survivor sharing her story publicly for the first time. She is a therapist with specializations in alternative healing therapy, addictions, and trauma. Patty survived a type of abuse called 'incest-by-proxy' by her father. When she told her mother about the sexually inappropriate touching and comments, her mother failed to protect Patty and stated, "It should be accepted," because, "he was my father and that he wasn't doing anything wrong." This pattern continued with her family treating her as the "black sheep" any time she has spoken up. Patty attempted suicide at age 15, and at age 20 she was the victim of a date rape. She has been in and out of treatment since age 18. Later in life Patty's boyfriend molested a young child. Patty reported this and worked to get the perpetrator charged while ensuring the youngster received appropriate treatment. The perpetrator was incarcerated, but for a charge unrelated to child abuse. Due to the failure of the legal system to address the abuse, and through helping the young girl recover, Patty realized her own childhood abuse was unresolved. After working on her own recovery, Patty initially intended to help sex trafficked victims, and later changed career paths to Addiction Recovery Therapist. Her experiences led her to identify the problem of a lack of treatment focus on childhood trauma. Patty's message for adult survivors and therapists is when, "working with people in recovery from addictions that often there are trauma issues that created their other issues."

Special guest Beth Donahue

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Beth Donahue from Port Richey, Florida, a returning NAASCA family member who's both a survivor and an activist. She'll be catching us up with any number of things she's been doing over the last year. "I got a copy of a bill from Protect Mass Children and am turning into a federal bill," Beth says. "It is to abolish the Statute of Limitations for Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA). I will be going to Washington DC with it." The Protect Mass Children mission is to pass stronger laws to protect children from sexual predators and to educate the community on how to defend themselves from sexual predators, to end childhood sexual abuse and to be a voice for the victims. Many involved are survivors or victims of abuse and know firsthand the devastating affects sexual abuse has on victims and their families. Beth herself is a survivor who was sexually abused by 3 men as a child, but she's been an advocate for children most of her adult life. "I was involved with helping start the organization The Innocence Revolution," Beth reminds us, letting us know she's going to be starting it back up. But she's even doing more. "I'm going to try and get the NFL to do a day for us," she says! Beth's paid a price because of her advocacy, too. "I have been targeted by my family and have lost friends and people I love," she explains, "mainly because I wouldn't waiver on my beliefs that children should be put first and no one has the right to ever abuse them in any way, shape or form." We're delighted to have her back on the show!!

Tonight's special guest is Travis Vining from Orlando, Florida, an author, teacher, and inspirational speaker who lived the real-life horrors of learning his father was a serial killer. His father ultimately spent 24 years on Florida's death row while Travis suffered many physical and emotional illnesses including repressed memories, paralyzing migraine headaches and crippling back pain, addiction, and depression resulting from the unresolved past grievances and trauma from childhood. His two books detail these experiences of being raised by a sociopathic father who used him as a confidant and accomplice in committing four murders and how through finding faith and forgiveness Travis was able to overcome the trauma and found healing. His first book, 'Transforming Darkness To Light, for Giving: spiritual lessons from my life with a serial killer,' focuses on how developing a profound faith in God freed him from the grip of his horrific past. His most recent project 'The Miracle in The Madness: Grateful to be the Son of a Murderer,' concentrates on how he ultimately came to forgive his father and find healing by way of what Travis terms "The Process of Letting Go." In addition to his books, Travis offers inspirational talks, spiritual programs, and educational opportunities to help people still suffering from addictions, compulsive behaviors, depression, destructive relationships, and trauma. You also can follow Travis's work on LoveFraud.com, a website for how to recognize and recover from sociopaths.

Tara plans to bring a friend of hers to the show this evening. Elizabeth is new to recovery, and Tara's been introducing her to what it means to be on a 'healing journey' here at NAASCA. Tara resides on the family's cattle ranch and was born on the Blackfeet Reservation. She's an avid horsewoman and is using her outspoken voice and adverse childhood experiences to advocate for the awareness and prevention of childhood sexual abuse. "Kids can handle the body safety conversations," she says. "What they can't handle is being sexually abused." She's planning on getting a recovery group started in her local community. Her presentations describe the complexities of childhood sexual abuse, the dark aftermath that unfolds in the life of a victim and demonstrates the victory that is shared when justice, understanding and healing has begun. "I will be giving some updates on the projects I have in the works and I will be making a big announcement for my work here locally in the Missoula and Ravalli County areas of Montana," she promises. She continues to lobby Montana's lawmakers to address the need for prevention education in schools, and in April 2017 the Governor signed "Tara's Law", creating a comprehensive educational component for Montana schools.

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: "Equal Opportunity Abuse: Nothing is Sacred in Cash for Kids Court" ~~ Tonight's show is all abut the baby, with a real focus on the child. Dr Jill is bringing on a special guest, Ms. Anonymous, a very high profile individual who has lived a life of privilege and extensive humanitarian contribution. Through no fault of her own, and when nothing could have prepared her, there was no way to save her, her infant, her family. Every horror that we discuss in every Domestic Violence, divorce and custody conflict came crashing in, turning a fairytale romance into a nightmare, and the joyous event of a new baby into a run-for-your-life occurance that is not ending! We'll discuss lawyers as a liability, judges in Kangaroo Courts and betrayal by trusted institutions .. an everyday event! ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.

8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Christi Wigle from Tennessee, founder of United Against Slavery (UAS) with a purpose to identify and document challenges affecting the anti-trafficking movement and remove the negative impact on trafficking survivors. UAS trains Survey Leaders and conducts an unprecedented international survey which has currently collected data from 47 states and 70 countries. Christi also co-founded Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking (CCAHT) where collaborative work with other partners including the FBI and DOJ raises awareness, provides training, and provides direct services to victims of trafficking for forty-one counties in East TN. One of CCAHT's efforts was creating the 'TN Save Our Kids' encouraging a state-wide response by key stakeholders to fight human trafficking. Another was the 'National Power of One Unite and Wear White Campaign' that involved participants from 37 states and 9 countries wearing white, to "symbolize shining a light for those trapped in darkness," on January 11 for National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. The campaign was such a success it will now be held annually. Additional to her work with UAS and CCAHT, Christi continues to work with sex and labor trafficking survivors and serves as a mentor to several leaders across the country. In a UAS statement Christi says, "we hope to find common ground among leaders, rise above the obstacles and impact change in this fight for those waiting to be freed from enslavement." She concludes, "Although I have never been trafficked, I have used many painful and traumatic situations throughout my entire life to provide compassion and empathy to those now walking in their healing journey."

Special guest Ronald Lail
Wednesday
01/10/2018
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Ronald (Randy) Lail from North Charleston, South Carolina, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) and the resulting PTSD. Randy says, "My story began when I was between 3 to 4 years old and ended when I was 14." He reports his abuse started with his father touching and playing with Randy and showing his son his own private parts while putting the young child to bed. Randy tried telling a close relative but his family did not want to hear, believe, or talk about this type of abuse (which he views as a very common reaction in the context of 1960's - 70's). By his early teens he was introduced to pedophile pornography by his father and a female accomplice who conditioned Randy to submit to numerous adult partners of both sexes as well as engage in acts with other child victims. At age 14 Randy was admitted to a psychiatric facility after getting the idea to mimic paralysis symptoms from watching a TV show. While hospitalized he was diagnosed as having suffered "unknown severe trauma" and after being discharged his father ended the abuse. Randy then suppressed the horror of his memories of the abuse until 8 years ago when symptoms of his PTSD began. He has since undergone various therapies to treat the flashbacks, nightmares, depression, and a suicide attempt before taking part in an FDA clinical trial to test the use of MDMA (ecstasy) in combination with cognitive psychotherapy. This treatment was successful after only 2 sessions, and Randy now considers himself a healed survivor of CSA who is "at peace and getting on with my life." Join us as Randy shares his story of recovery for the first time with NAASCA.

Tonight's special guest is Dr Tina Medina from Kansas City, Kansas, a survivor of child abuse and a NAASCA family member who helped draft the bylaws for the organization back in 2015. Tina is a professional writer specializing in public relations, community/media relations, technical and grant writing. She began her career in journalism as a high school writer and it became a profession that has spanned over 34 years. Tina's also produced a series of faith-based books related to being on a healing journey. "In 1997, I began my sexual abuse research and ministry in which I have met homeless people, students, and everyday people," she explains. "Through prayer and many years of work, I came to the conclusion that only God can heal the inner-spirit of a sexual abuse survivor. I, through God's grace, invested my own financial resources for this book series and self-published it because I am committed to helping others as I have for the last 20 years. I have ministered to countless people in this delicate area and never gained a penny until 2015." NAASCA is delighted for the opportunity to present Tina and her work. And she agrees. "I believe that 20 years of sowing in the Kingdom of God will produce a great harvest for everyone who reads these books and seeks out my professional help, because my faith brought me here and people are responding in a positive manner because God is all over this book series." Tina concludes, "If you need compassionate, affirmative, restorative, and encouraging help today, please consider allowing me to help you overcome sexual abuse with the Word of God."
