    Jenny Marshall Williams- Domestic Abuse Survivor

    in Women

    Tune in and support Ms.Jenny Williams. Jennie will share her story with us in hopes of, helping other women to get OUT of their situation. I read an interesting article from the Huffington written by-  Alanna Vagianos.  This is ALARMING 


    The number of American troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq between 2001 and 2012 was 6,488. The number of American women who were murdered by current or ex male partners during that time was 11,766. That's nearly double the amount of casualties lost during war.


    Women are much more likely to be victims of intimate partner violence with 85 percent of domestic abuse victims being women and 15 percent men. Too many women have been held captive by domestic violence -- whether through physical abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse or a combination of all three. 


    I will continue to use my platform to give anyone a voice to speak out and to help others.

    Can You Help A Loved One With A Substance Abuse Problem?

    in Women

    Alcohol drinkers and drug users rarely see their habits as a problem. It's the people around them who have the problem: the ones who love them who must indure their irrational behavior and unpleasant personality distortions, their unreliability and unpredictability, the embarrassment and disappointment, and the constant apprehension of wondering when the next episode of drunken, drugged out behavior will hurt, shame and humiliate the family. When women suffer from substance abuse, it is often an outgrowth of depression from some unhealed wounds from childhood, frequently sexual assault, physical abuse, verbal abuse, or abandonment. But when the family nurturer, the mother, is herself hurting, the whole family experiences her pain, and they too, grow up emotionally scarred. Pamela Frazier, A National Certified Addiction Counselor, operates N' The Spirit Transformational Living, a licensed recovery home for women. Today she shares with us the challenges and triumphs of women striving to overcome addictions and what loved ones can do to help.

    IT'S HIGH TIME TO END THE SILENCE ON DOMESTIC ABUSE!!

    in Self Help

    Are you or someone you care about in an abusive relationship?


    Battered-spouse syndrome is more commonly called "battered-women's syndrome" because most of the victims are women, either wives or girlfriends of the perpetrators. however, abused husbands and boyfriends have gained increased attention, as have same-sex abuse by gay and lesbian partners.  In cases of battered-spouse syndrome, however, the problem is that often the victim refuses to testify. Guilt and shame are primary reasons, particularly for men who expect they will be ridiculed for being abused by a woman. Fear is an even stronger factor in abuse victims' silence.


    Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied.


    And his is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical.


    Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship are the first steps to ending it.


    Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you.  buser doesn’t “play fair.” Abusers use fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation to wear you down and keep you under his or her thumb. Your abuser may also threaten you, hurt you, or hurt those around you.


    No one should live in fear of the person they love.


    Join me Janice Clarke, Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Herbalist, Nutritional Consultant, Reiki Practitioner and Host of the Soulful Healing Talk Show  and our guest panelist,to discuss what is Domestic Abuse, so we can readily indentify the subtle signs of domestic abuse, the different types, the different strategies abusers use like, fear, guilt shame and intimidation.


    Our Me Time is going to be very eye opening….Catch you then!


    One Love!!

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1123

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Amy Crohn from New York, a returning NAASCA family member who's a survivor of child abuse, and an accomplished marketing communications, business development professional, writer and journalist. Her book "Dying To Live" explains how childhood maltreatment can lead to adult physical illness. As a youngster Amy was subjected to emotional abuse and neglect. A very nervous child, she was quite often sick, and missed a lot of grade school. Amy became very ill at age 20 with mononucleosis and decided then and there that she was not going to let the first 18 years of her life dictate the rest of it. She writes, "I pushed everything inside. But at at age 36, she continues, "I couldn't hide from my past anymore .. I literally had to die to live" (see book). Amy explains, "While writing my book, I learned of The ACE Study (Adverse Childhood Experiences Study) and took the ACE survey. With a high score of 8, I am convinced that my early childhood traumas caused my adult physical illness." Today, after the suicide of her brother eight months ago, she is feeling the effects of PTSD once again. She goes on, "The early childhood abuse simply does not prepare one for the challenges of life." Amy has recently been trained as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) and, in fact, adopted one foster child in 2000. She says, "It is my hope that I can help educate physicians to include The ACE survey questions in their patient intake questionnaires and, as a CASA, to help interrupt a pattern that may lead to illness later in life."

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1125

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Amber (O'Neill) Thornton from Albany, New York, a child abuse survivor and activist who's putting together "A Well Kept Secret," a book of anonymous survivor stories meant to raise awareness about child abuse. She says, "I was abused sexually, physically, and emotional by my father. My first memory of it was at five years old. I turned him in at 11 years old. I've been in counseling on and off and had a brief stay in Four Winds. I am currently in school for criminal justice, working from home for a family law attorney, caring for my two boys, and working on this book. The goal of the book is to wake a lot of people up to the fact that very little is being done to protect children from abuse. I have been in and out of family court fighting for custody of my six year old." Because of her experience she has a mission, "My goal is to write a book that will make people aware of what children go through. People don't seem to realize how little is actually done when abuse is reported. I was abused for 9 years of my childhood. Child protective services expects to be able to tell in one visit whether or not a child is in a safe home. They were in my home multiple times and left me with a monster. Currently I am locating other survivors to interview about their experiences and their thoughts and feelings as they went through them." She goes on, ""I can't change the world if no one reads the book but I truly want to do this right and reach as many people as possible." Survivors who are willing to share their story anonymously can reach her at alynnrichardson1988@gmail.com
