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 Ekaterina Tsatsko from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a child abuse survivor, Neuroscientist, and Clinical Researcher, with over a decade of health-care experience attending to the needs of the brain-injured and/or disabled. Humanizing healthcare is her ultimate goal. She grew up as a ?scapegoat child under narcissistic parents? and is currently on leave due to PTSD. "I feel it will help me in my healing [to tell my story]," she writes. "I never spoke about all that I experienced due to shame but once I realized I was not to blame for what happened to me growing up in childhood my voice began to emerge. I am a survivor of childhood abuse and am an activist at heart." It's only this past year that Ekaterina had to come to terms with her history, due to all the trauma that led her to lose so much of her health. Discussions and other forums, such as this NAASCA 'Stop Child Abuse Now' show, are not only healing for Ekaterina, but they also empower her during this difficult time dealing with PTSD, by knowing that people still care about changing society for the better. Viewing the ?incredible resources? available on the NAASCA website (www.NAASCA.org), Ekaterina believes her counseling and NAASCA ?could be my chance to finally share what I have been hiding from the world. It is important, as too many of us sit in silence feeling utterly disconnected and alone.? We at NAASCA totally agree, Ekaterina, and are glad you are sharing your story with us tonight!
