    Healing Addiction, Part 1- Child Sexual Abuse and Addiction

    in Lifestyle

    Sometimes the memories are too much to hold inside.  Sometimes the pain just gets too big.  Medicating our pain as survivors of child sexual abuse is one way to survive.


    But as long as we are addicted, we will never thrive.  Addiction kills relationships, careers, healing and spiritual growth.  Addiction takes the life out of us and returns the destruction of all we hold dear in exchange for killing the pain.


    David Pittman, director of Together We Heal, knows both the pain of abuse AND the pain of addiction.  And now he knows the joy of helping others get free from both.  Join David and Misa as they bring hope for healing from addiction and child abuse.

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 7 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 7: "Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings." Step Seven is about humility (realistic, selfless, and modest) and asking for help to make the changes you are now prepared for. Consider Step Seven as a portal into openness for change. Once you take Step Seven, you step out of the way so your Higher Power can handle the rest of it. The combination of humility and asking provides a survivor with a perspective beyond the traumatic events. Sadly, you can form an inaccurate perspective based on how you internalized the traumatic event(s). Through prayer (humbly asking), you can trust that your prayers are heard, shall be answered in God's time only. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 8. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Tonight's special guest is Arnold Herman from Keansburg, NJ, a father of five, who, along with his wife, has also fostered 32 children over the years, some of them from abusive backgrounds. He is an author of two books with problem solving ideas related to teenagers, and runs "Experience Counts Inc", a non profit organization working to prevent the abuse of adolescents and teenagers by educating parents and children on ways to deal with each other without getting into abusive situations. Arnold writes, "Parenting an adolescent or teenager is without a doubt one of the toughest jobs in the world it is a 24-hour per day, seven day a week task that requires the patience of a saint, the Wisdom of Solomon, and the money of Bill Gates. By the time we get really good at it, our children have grown to adulthood." And he goes on, "The wrong kind of parenting can lead to many problems. In addition to creating a poor relationship between parent and child, it can often lead to various type of abuse. Abuse of adolescents and teenagers is a terrible, but often preventable, problem. More often then not it starts with a simple lack of communication. Then escalates to verbal and physical abuse The parents who perpetrate this type of abuse are often not bad people, but rather parents who have become frustrated in their attempts to communicate with, relate to, and control their children. Sexual abuse may also start innocently, with parents often unaware of the behavior that could lead to this terrible tragedy." Be sure to download his free handbooks: "Bring Back The Woodshed" and "Raising Reasonable Parents."

    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: Are our Family Courts in Contempt? With judges running roughshod over civil rights and ignoring rule of law, as well as abusing the use of contempt charges and then gagging innocent litigants to cover up their actions, who is REALLY in contempt here? It is getting to a point where being a litigant in Family Court is as risky as being a random target on a firing range. We'll speak with legal expert Barry Goldstein, author of the books 'The Quincy Solution' and 'Domestic Violence Abuse and Child Custody,' with Robin Carr, advocate and author of 'The Motherless Child Project,' and with advocate Lori Callies. The cases and rulings they'll be discussing are so completely outrageous and utterly contemptible, you won't believe they are true. But, tragically, they are. This is one show you won't want to miss. ~~  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 E Diane Champé from Baltimore, a returning NAASCA family member, here to update us about the work she's been doing with her E Diane Champé Institute. She's known as "The Survivors Champion" and has been an active member of the recovery community for many years. Diane's work is devoted to the tens of millions of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect who get up every day and try to work and function in a world that seems to not care about us. Her program, the SERVE Zone (Safety, Education, Resources, Validation, & Empowerment), provides opportunities for survivors to learn, practice and develop relational, communication, and other life skills in a relaxing, safe environment. Diane is the author of the book "Conguering Incest: My Life as a Trauma Survivor." She writes, "As a survivor of horrendous childhood abuse and neglect, I understand the loneliness and hopelessness of living behind closed doors with a terrible secret. I have also felt the warmth, compassion and acceptance in relationships which have allowed me to feel free and hopeful." She goes on, "We will provide the validation and encouragement survivors deserve to facilitate their healing." She explains the Institute's Centers "will not provide any type of professional therapy or self-help program. Instead, they'll be places to promote community, connection, and wellness, which the experts have stated is vital to promote engagement with the world."
