    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 450

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Barbara Ochoa (aka Petra Luna) from San Francisco, who'll be with us to talk about the special events concerning Male Abuse Awareness Week, Dec 1-8, which will launch with a Saturday night Big Benefit Concert Event in Van Nuys, CA (Dec 1st). NAASCA founder, Bill Murray, will once again participate in this event. The abuse and neglect of children is a terrible tragedy, and the effects on the lives of children, the adults they become and their families, friends and coworkers can be profound. Males abused as children suffer some unique harms and face special challenges to healing. Because boys and young men are told by society that they must be strong and brave, they feel guilty and ashamed about having been abused, dominated and vulnerable. Male victims are much less likely to tell anyone what happened to them, let alone to seek professional help to deal with their hurt and go down a path of healing. Some get lost in self-destructive behaviors, seeking refuge in alcohol and drug addictions, sexual addictions, self-mutilation and even suicide. The Petra Luna www.Help4Guys.org web site explains these stigmas and stereotypes, and offers ongoing assistence.

  • Special Guest Barbara Ochoa Discusses Male Abuse Awareness Week

    in Current Events

    This is a must listen to show! Join me and my very special guest Petra Luna from the P.Luna Foundation as we discuss her latest work regarding Male Abuse Awareness Week which runs from December 1 - 8, 2015. "The P. Luna Foundation, the foundation behind Help4Guys.org, believes that Male Victims of Abuse should no longer be silent. Every day we give a voice to these isolated individuals because by doing so they are more likely to work through their problems and get the help they need. We strive to prevent or relieve the crippling effects of past and current abuse like; serious psychological problems, relationship problems, drug addiction, suicide and the random cycle of abuse." This is one lady that you do not want to underestimate. This is War and Petra declares WAR by shouting out, "The WAR ON ABUSE MOVEMENT is where we unite as advocates, activists and soldiers for our cause.  If we have to delve into history, religion, various societies, and cultures to find solutions and to reclaim human rights for the victims of abuse, then we shall do so.  We will not falter, we will not tire, and we will not fail.  This is our moral obligation to the casualties of these massacres and ourselves.  Please join us in this effort to make positive change in our world?" Petra Luna is also an accomplished and successful Recording Artist, Singer/Songwriter. Please visit her websites for more information at http://www.petraluna.com and http://help4guys.org.
