Tonight's special guest is Barbara Ochoa (aka Petra Luna) from San Francisco, who'll be with us to talk about the special events concerning Male Abuse Awareness Week, Dec 1-8, which will launch with a Saturday night Big Benefit Concert Event in Van Nuys, CA (Dec 1st). NAASCA founder, Bill Murray, will once again participate in this event. The abuse and neglect of children is a terrible tragedy, and the effects on the lives of children, the adults they become and their families, friends and coworkers can be profound. Males abused as children suffer some unique harms and face special challenges to healing. Because boys and young men are told by society that they must be strong and brave, they feel guilty and ashamed about having been abused, dominated and vulnerable. Male victims are much less likely to tell anyone what happened to them, let alone to seek professional help to deal with their hurt and go down a path of healing. Some get lost in self-destructive behaviors, seeking refuge in alcohol and drug addictions, sexual addictions, self-mutilation and even suicide. The Petra Luna www.Help4Guys.org web site explains these stigmas and stereotypes, and offers ongoing assistence.
