Tonight's special guest is Jenna Brooks from Manchester, New Hampshire, a staunch advocate for abuse prevention and recovery. Jenna wears a lot of hats. She's a critically acclaimed novelist, a seminar author and instructor, a columnist, and a professionally trained and certified coach, specializing in divorce, post-divorce, and Domestic Violence. "In general, I write about women’s issues," Jenna writes. "But my passion in life is to change the way the culture regards battered women, and help them to reclaim their lives after escaping an abuser." She goes on, “I concentrate on advocacy for abused mothers and children because in my experience, the Family Court often takes up where an abuser leaves off. Too often, battered women are every bit as injured by a paternalistic, even oppressive Family Court system as they are by an abuser." Jenna notes how unfair this is. "As a society, we pay little attention to the aftereffects of domestic violence - both legally and culturally." Now focused on her work as an author and on her efforts to facilitate community involvement, Jenna accepts clients on a very limited basis. Her most recent books include 'After Awareness: Advocating for Battered Women'. Also just released: 'The Alienated Mother', a full coaching series within a handbook, designed to help post-abuse women live their lives with meaning and purpose after their children have rejected them. You can find all of Jenna's books at major online retailers, and she welcomes your comments. "I've added NAASCA to my promotion list for social media, and I'll be talking about your organization whenever possible, Jenna says. "I'm just *so* impressed by what you do."
