    Domestic Violence - Elder Abuse

    in Training

    As the demographics in the U.S. continue to increase in numbers of the elderly, the potential for Elder Abuse increases as well even though crime statistics tend to reflect older adults are unliekly to become victims of violent crime. The highest percentage of crime against persons 65 yuears of age or older is property crime. Thefts against older adults are about 1:5 crimes committed as compared to 1:33 for people aged 12 to 49. Growing old is sometimes hallmarked by greater vulnerability and we do not have reliable statistics on crimes against older adults that go back very far. This show will highlight crimes against the elder.y and include information on defining Elder Abuse, explaining adult protective services, addressing the categories of abuse most commonly found, and relate all of these to Family Abuse as well as Institutional Abuse.

    The Detectors Radio Network on Elder And Guardian Abuse

    in Radio

    Within the system of so-called Bills to prevent the issue of abuse homelessness and the mistreatment of elderly and disabled people within the United States there seems to be a very high level of conspiracy aimed towards seniors from the time they are dianosyed with illness to extreme measures of medication given to them as a result of these alleged illiness causing many to die. The Death count also can be seen within the reason reports relating to our returning military men and the cause of the lack of allowed treatment whereby they are facing the very same conspiracy to offer up scams to relieve them the right to benefits and healthcare, he robbery also includes how nursing homes many are involved as well in allowing non-familymembers to take over family members homes cars and more their lives with little recourse for the families to fight back with this week we will talk about the issue of Elder Disabled and Veteran Abuse within a system that continously fails us with the intent to take away our rights to having retirement money and the things that we were told would be there upon retirement.

    Elder Abuse Awareness Day: Can we mention the professional predators??

    in Politics

    Today is Elder Abuse Awareness Day.  Obama announced he was making that official.  I can only imagine the media spins that are being constructed right now to cement in the public mind that it is only family and friends who abuse, neglect and exploit the elderly.


    We know better.  We know family and friends account for only 4-5 % of the abuse of the elderly.  The remainder is at the hands of professionals who game the system in order to loot the estate. But mainstream media won't even mention that!


    Tonights show will highlight many of the cases of professional predators operating within corrupt probate courts across the country that have stolen billions from the elderly while holding them prisoner in what usually turns out to be a sub-standard facility.  Forced medication, anyone?


    Please feel free to call in with your comments or questions.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1015

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Erica Hammel from Michigan, a mother who became an advocate and activist because of the childhood abuse of her young child a year ago. The boy, known as Wyatt The Warrior, nearly died from his injuries, and his mother, Erica, become a voice for victims of child abuse. The toddler was abused when he was just 1 year old (he turned 2 in October, 2014).  Wyatt was physically assaulted (shaken baby syndrome) by the woman Erica's ex husband had left her for. The child suffered a major brain bleed, broken ribs, and permanent brain damage and, and was not expected to live. In fact Erica was told he might never even crawl. But after spending 7 weeks at Children's Hospital he was considered a living, breathing miracle. Wyatt is now walking and has literally beaten all the odds. Erica writes, "His father is not allowed to see him. His father's girlfriend had a criminal history of child abuse that he knew of (I didn't know) and he still left Wyatt alone with her. On the days he was going to work he told me Wyatt stayed with his mom." When criminal proceedings began, Erica had to quit her job because Wyatt needed full care. He currently does some sort of therapy 4xs a week. His main problems are he can't talk and he can't eat solid food. As Erica says it, "The fact that Wyatt's abuser had a previous history of child abuse sickened me." She wondered how someone who is convicted of physically abusing a child wasn't on a register sex offender registry." She concludes, "I had to speak up, I have to make a change. We need to protect our children, especially the ones who don't have a voice."

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1014

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 - 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 4: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves." Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at the traumas that have shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. ~~ 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 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com
