Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week feature Bill Murray, the nationally respected public safety and child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocate. Bill is founder of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Originally he was best known for Los Angeles Community Policing (LACP), his reaction to the events of 9-11-2001. Bill's web site (LACP.org) has been continuously published since early 2002, and is the world's largest grassroots nonprofit effort devoted to community-based policing. In 2009, Bill launched the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA.org) as a grassroots effort, one based on his personal life experienced. "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping," Bill writes. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects. Once my parents were gone, I decided to devote my remaining time, money and available energy to this vitally important cause." After years of operating as a grassroots, all volunteer effort, and with over 2500 BlogTalkRadio shows in the ever-growing library, NAASCA became a public charity .. a 501(c)3 .. where the single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. Join our hosts six-nights-a-week (all but Saturday), at 8pm EST (7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. These shows always include panel discussions, LIVE chat rooms, and frequent call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Kim Kubal, MS, a PhD candidate from Millbrae, California, who's a survivor of ritual abuse and human trafficking. "Looking back on my life," she says, "I realize that I spent most of my childhood and adolescence fragmented and out of my body." She goes on, "I now know that my situation was one of extreme and recurrent abuse and trauma. During times of abuse and torture, I simply went someplace else. I didn't feel the physical, emotional or spiritual pain." Kim felt she had to escape into multiple addictions and self-abusive behaviors .. food, sugar, sex, drugs, etc. She was in tremendous denial, as where her parents and other family members. Kim descended into a deep, suicidal depression, clinging to her therapist and several 12-Step programs she was in. "After 10 long years of healing, I finally thought I was done and could start to live life. Boy, was I wrong!" Kim says she had the sobering realization that the abuses she began to recall had indeed occurred, that her memories were real. "I pressed on, at times seeing two separate therapists each week." Kim went on spiritual retreats and attended eight different 12-Step programs dealing with 12 different addictions. Now it's paid off. "I am able to heal and give back. I am at peace within myself and love myself. I come from a place of love, and see the love, which is God, in everyone." Kim is now the Executive Director of 'Your Strength to Heal' providing a safe and nurturing inpatient and outpatient treatment facility where women can heal from trauma-related conditions. Her personal web site, KimKubal.com, is dedicated to healing and preventing trauma through education, her books, workshops and support.
