The host of Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week, is Bill Murray, the nationally respected public safety and child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocate. Bill is founder and CEO 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 over 30 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 1600 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 host Bill Murray 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 Eleanor Cowan from western Canada, a gifted writer who has published a memoir, 'The History of a Pedophile's Wife,' that recounts how she and her siblings were treated in childhood and how this played out in her choice of a spouse and father of her children – a man who came to betray her trust by brutally assaulting her children sexually and emotionally. The book seeks to give one possible answer to the question, ?How could a mother not know her spouse is sexually abusing the children?? Members of the NAASCA family, especially survivors of child sexual abuse and trauma, have often expressed the feeling that closed-mouth spouses of abusive partners share in the responsibility for the trauma these predators cause the children. But do they always? Only two states have made it a felony to withhold knowlege of child sexual abuse, and few cases have yet been prosecuted. Eleanor's story starts with unhealed trauma from a repressive and abusive environment of violence, addiction, and a strict Roman Catholic upbringing. She says these life experiences set her up to marry the man who sexually abused their children. Eleanor challenges a mother-blaming society to have compassion and insight into institutions and culture that perpetuates abuse. She recalls obstacles faced over the six year writing process such as dealing with deep feelings of embarrassment about sharing her story, and reactions of others such as her first editor's harsh personal criticism and lack of empathy. Join us in discussing this rarely addressed side of recovery from child abuse.
