Q & A call-in discussion with a survivor-professional - Using an OPEN MIKE forum, each Thursday night we'll feature a different survivor-professional co-host who'll field topics brought to the episode by you, the listener. ~~ Tonight's special guest is Bill Murray from Los Angeles, whose recovery is 12 Step-based and spans some 3 and a half decades. Bill will handle any 5th Thursday that occurs in a month. Sexually abused by numerous clerics, all men, between the ages of 11 and mid-way through high school, a minor seminary, he was also the victim of pre-pubescent ography and even a two week kidnapping. Bill was graced to have found Alcoholics Anonymous when he was 30 years old. The program not only helped him get clean and sober but also gave him a place to give up his secrets, and tools by which he recovered. He firmly believes one can use the 12 Step process to heal child abuse trauma and to find a way to a comfortable life. ~~ Each Thursday evening we'll welcome a different co-host professional who'll assist SCAN host and NAASCA founder Bill Murray, fielding questions and lead a variety of topics suggested by our call-in participants. Their trauma-informed perspectives as survivor-professionals will help inform discussions on the issues of child abuse, trauma and healthy human sexuality that spring from questions and topics brought to us by our listeners. ~~ Everyone's invited to engage on tonight's show, on the phone or in our show's community chat room. ~~ Please visit the NAASCA.org web site.
