Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter, is not known to have been professionally treated for mental illness. In that he was not alone. Across the country, many youth who need help the most are not getting it.
Almost two-thirds of teens with a lifetime mental disorder fail to get professional help, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Of all those teens with mental health issues, those with severe mental disorders get treatment even less often, with half reporting they have never been seen or treated by a professional therapist.
Recent budget cuts, a shortage of mental health therapists, and inadequate community health services are among the reasons for the lack of treatment, mental health professionals say. Many health insurance plans don't cover mental health therapy. Teens and their parents are often reluctant to acknowledge the need for professional help and may not know where to turn.
Does the Mass Media influence teens that have been trapped into prostitution due to trafficking? I think so much about what has happened to me. Why these men did what they did to me. Old, disgusting men. It was horrible. They knew I did not want to be there, but they paid their money. They used me. I was their property for the night. They destroyed me.
Prostitution has been called the world’s oldest “profession.” In reality, it is the world’s oldest “oppression” and continues to be one of the most overlooked human rights abuses of women on the planet today. Prostitution of teen girls is a particularly lethal form of violence against women, and a violation of a woman’s most basic human rights.

Community violence includes many events. It might be a stranger using physical threat or direct violence to take something or hurt someone. It can also be violence between family members, close partners, or peers. These events may include cruel acts such as being shot, raped, stabbed, or beaten.
Most of the attention from media and research is on community violence that involves adults. However, many children and teens face violence in their neighborhoods and schools. Such violence can have effects on children.
How much community violence do children face?

Join us as we interview our guest, John Watkins, a professional photographer from Huntington Beach, California. We'll be discussing the powerful nature photography John captures and what inspires him with his work.
John describes his approach to shooting as "lifestyle photography": being on location, using natural light, capturing real-life, and portraying positive images of his subjects. "I love location work because it incorporates elements that aren't as stagnant as a studio: it's all about life, it's all about light."
Visit MyEmpoweredWorld.com to view John's work in an upcoming post. Of course we encourage you to share anything that inspires you to help us spread our message of empowerment to the world.

This episode: The Mission of emPowering NOW LLC is to bring forth the Path of XPR as a way to transition from a world mainly in GReed where Giving/Receiving communicates by the way of fear, confusion and domination, to a world of GRace where my word flows freely from the silence and the sounds of LOVE.
The New Essenes is a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection as a way to solve everyday problems. Our inquiry is based on the idea that language is alive and that the Word is where our Power lives: since speech is an act, communication is not what is said and done, but the result of what is said and done.
By joining in and coming back, we increasingly benefit from the distilled essence of an ultimate method of inquiry, based on Sacred Geometry and known as the Path of XPR.
Our meetings last one-hour & are structured as follows:
1. The first 5 minutes: Welcoming, Checking In. One Minute of Silence.
2. The next 10 minutes: Reading the SIX UnderStandings, Reading of the FOUR Forces & the FOUR Motions. The TWIN Missions: XPR & emPowering NOW, Feeling into the TWIN QKode.
3. The last 45 minutes: Introduction of a topic. Group Sharing & Inquiry, Reading of the SIX XPR Steps, Summary / Ritual Closing.
