    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1098

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Barbara Hughes from Sewanee, TN, a survivor and activist who wrote a book about child sexual abuse called, "Enfolded in Silence/A Story in Art of Healing from Sexual Trauma in Childhood" Born in New York City, Barbara was assaulted between 3 and 9 years old and says she lived a childhood in denial of her sexual abuse which included sexual torture. "I hid my trauma from everyone, including myself," she writes, "but was very fearful, shy, and acted out my abuse on myself. I grew up and had a career as a sculptor, raised two boys, and got into 12 Step recovery. Before that, I got involved with toxic and abusive men." She explains, "In my 40's, I started having body memories, and in therapy, remembered my repeated trauma, over the process of years. I had an art therapist who was willing to re-mother me in the boundaries of therapy. I was very angry at God." Among other things she did extensive EMDR and turned a corner in her healing. "My abuse is no longer a stone in my heart." She continues, "It has a place of honor inside me, but is at peace. I have had many healers and I am thriving and very grateful." Finally, she wrote her book, and did presentations with images about abuse and healing. "I now facilitate a support group for women survivors of child abuse (ASCA). I continue my art work and volunteer at a food bank. My marriage survived my healing process and we have a good, loving relationship now. I have grandchildren. Family is very important to me. I continue to find venues where I can show and tell about the devastation of child sexual abuse and about how you heal."

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight's TOPIC: "CPS and our Family Courts - A Criminal Consortium?" When does abuse of power cross the line into flat out criminal behavior? With precedent setting court cases challenging this criminal enterprise under such statutes as RICO (criminal racketeering), Misfeasance (wrongful exercise of lawful authority) and Malfeasance (legally unjustified/harmful act by a public official) succeeding, and the exposure of Child Trafficking and Abuse by these same agencies, it is very clear who the real criminals are. More frighteningly, they are still operating flagrantly and for the most part without any penalty at all. Tonight we speak with Melissa Deigel, a mother desperate to save her medically kidnapped children who instead, has been threatened and silenced and stripped of her rights, Advocate Malinda Sherwyn, who has both witnessed and stood up for many such parents facing criminal abuses and Advocate and Author Eugenea Couture, whose compelling experience as a child abused in this system gives her a unique insight as to what really happens when CPS steps in to 'protect' children from loving parents.~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to:naasca.forourkids@gmail.com

    Tonight's special guest is Judy Cagnemi from Suffolk County, Long Island, a returning NAASCA family member who's a child abuse survivor and blogger at One Woman's Adventure Through Life and Recovery. Today she says describes a beautiful life, and is grateful for her family, home and career. But, she writes, "For most of my life, I didn't see things this way. I was filled with rage and self-hate." Her mother, bruised and battered by Judy's father, turned up on her maternal grandparents doorstep when Judy was an infant. She continues, "My mother made it clear she never wanted me. I suffered neglect and emotional abuse from her." She was physically abused by her grandmother, " .. and much later on I realized I was sexually abused by my grandfather. I was a victim acting out for decades by abusing myself with alcohol, drugs, engaging in physically and emotionally abusive relationships and making incredibly bad choices." As an adult Judy was in therapy for over 20 years for depression and emotional child abuse and neglect before uncovering the sexual aspects of her trauma. She says, "Since the door was opened, memories have been springing forward and it feels as though they are happening now rather than 30+ years ago. It's a strange reward for being in a better mental state." She goes on, "My mind must feel that I am finally able to accept the memories of what happened and recover from it" She concludes, "Along the way, I turned from the victim I was to the survivor I am today. I look forward to sharing how that miracle happened for me."

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1100

    Tonight's special guest is Paul Rieker from Temecula, California, an abuse survivor who's doing a study of PTSD. He's seeking the mechanism by which we can take control of our emotional assignments to the past. Re-arranging the priority of our dreams appears to be the key to placing joy and optimism where there was once anger and fear, and to replace our dwelling on the past. A troubled childhood included a severe beating by his father at 6 years old. Paul relates, "He was screaming, "I wish you were never born." This event created many problems for me in my life, into adulthood. It caused an "ADHD" symptom." Paul says, "We hear from therapists, that psychological development is damaged with trauma. This is true. In many ways, I stopped my development." He goes on, "In therapy, this situation came open. Dan Roden, who introduced me to the process which I am now terming "Abreaction, Desensitization and Emotional Reframing, changed the memory of this trauma." Paul continues, "I spent 12 hours, in trance therapy. Within the 12 hours of that 2 weeks, I was healed of my multiple emotional fixations which where the underlying cause of my suicidal fixation." Eventually he became certified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, of American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and now provides therapy for all types of trauma. Paul believes the model of 1 hour of therapy per week, per the Insurance Payment Plans, is insufficient and not the best process for healing. It's his opinion that therapy should be 2-3 hour sessions, with 4 or 5 sessions occurring within 30 days, so the problems are solved. In his experience a reduction of PTSD symptoms by 50% is possible in 30 days, with 5-20 hours therapy.

    Tonight's special guest is Nicolette Winn from San Angelo, Texas, a survivor, activist and author of "One." She says she's, ".. applying the principles of Industrial-Organizational Psychology to my role as Founder of "No Longer Silenced Movement" to pair teen and young adult survivors of child abuse with positive, concise resources so that they can succeed in life after abuse." She goes on, "Teen and young adult survivors of child abuse often don't have resources after leaving foster care or abusive homes. I wrote a book to reach out to them and started a program." NAASCA agrees there are not enough services provided to foster care kids, especially those needed in the particularly difficult time of transitioning out of protective serves and emerging into adult life. The quote from Jordan Shaw that accompany's the book's Amazon page reads, ""All it takes to start a raging inferno is a spark and only a step to start a life changing journey. This book tells the story of a girl with the will of a titan as she journeys through abuse and transforms into a powerhouse of a young woman. It's a personal account of her journey that is a vehicle of inspiration for others to either relate to or use as a stepping stone to find help. Let this book inspire you to reach out and help those who may be too scared to make the first move. Be the spark, be the shove to get them walking and started on their journey out."
