Tonight's special guest is Jennifer Murphy from Fort Meyers, Florida, a Child and Family Therapist who specialized in sex abuse and sex trafficking victims/survivors. When she was a young child herself, Jenny witnessed an even younger girl being raped by a much older teenager. She went to the prepetrator's parents and told them what he'd done. "From then on I know I had to do something," she says. In junior high and high school Jenny aware that many of her best friends had been sexually abused by a father, brother, uncle or close family friend. "I was the 'counselor' in the my circle of friends for as long as I can remember." She saw the way not having someone believe them and not getting proper treatment caused them long suffering. Jenny did lots of volunteering and trained in the first class of Guardian Ad Litem Child Advocates before she was 18 years old. She got trained in rape & crisis counseling even before she stepped through the doors of college or university. Then she landed an entry level job at the only sexual abuse treatment program in 5 counties. Jenny learned fund development & grant writing, community relations and began public speaking, going on to earn a Masters Degree in Child & Adolescent Psychology, specializing in sexual abuse, rape & other sex crimes. "I have worked with these victims for over 25 years," she writes. Now Jenny runs a sexual abuse and sex trafficking outreach group called FABULOUS FAITHFUL FREEDOM FIGHTERS that's currently working on a rehab program for victims of prostitution, escort, stripping, etc.
