Tonight's special guest is Edward (Ed) Mashek from North Carolina, a child abuse survivor who grew up in foster care. Ed's an active volunteer member of the NAASCA family and is involved in numerous efforts to combat childhood trauma. Ed's a tireless advocate, author, and activist for foster youth, abused children, and all victims of abuse. He has a B.S. in Psychology, an MBA, and is a member of Psi-Chi, the National Honor Society of Psychology. Ed serves as a board member for NAASCA, the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse, as a co-host and regular panelist on the "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) radio program, and is a member of RAINN's (the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network) Speakers Bureau. His motivation comes from his own time growing up in an abusive foster home and his desire to prevent others from having to experience the things he did. Ed has spoken at conferences, before governmental committees, and at the US Capital. In July he will be speaking at the SCRIPT conference in Los Angeles, which will be dealing with issues unique and specific to male survivors of trauma and abuse. In August he will be relocating to SE Asia where he will serve as NAASCA's official regional representative and continue his fight against child abuse. Read his BLOG
