    Male Abuse Awareness Talking Research

    in Self Help

    Male Abuse Awareness Special Broadcasting is very happy to bring you Ms. Molly Wolfe and Ms. Lori Barnes!! We kick off this week's events and full week of interviews with incredible research with extreme focus on Male Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. 


    Please join in as we talk with these two ladies about what their specific study is doing to help bring focus to the issues impacting males who have been abused. There are many myths out there, such as Our guys who are sexually abused grow up to be pedophiles!! Really, I don't know of one single guy who has endured that type of pain and gone on to inflict this upon another. I believe that our guys don't seek help and then find themselves exploding on those around them, the ones they love the most.


    Now you have to think, don't we all do exactly this? We take our trauma and then if not healed, it will and does cycle forward, if not by direct wounding then by the choices we make and the impact those choices have on our lives today. We must see deeper than the surface. No one is above being a predator or a pedophile. Some of the most highly respected people have been busted in the past years which shows us just how well these types of personalities hide within our society.


    In our continued partnership with P Luna Foundation's Male Abuse Awareness Week Event which kicks off today, we are celebrating an entire week of special interviews with incredible guests. Please tune in, follow our shows, share with a friend, invite others to get invovled, but we can and will change the impact of these crimes when we can help those harmed find the resources to help them heal and rebuild their sense of personal value.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1284

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 4) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, 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 what traumata 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. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 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 & TRADITION 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1285

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Linda Dueling from Omaha, Nebraska, a child abuse survivor and active NAASCA volunteer family member. Linda was sexually abused and eventually raped by her Grandpa. This went on until she was about 8 years old. Later, at 12, she would 'fall in love' with a 20 year old who introduced her to IV drugs. At 15 she ended up living on the streets with a boy and they were eventually arrested for 'breaking and entering' when they tried to find shelter. He was sent to Juvenile Hall, but Linda was released to her mother. "Mom slapped and hit me the whole walk home about 12 blocks." She ran away again and experienced a horrible gang rape by a group of 'friends'. Linda says. "I know GOD saved me that night." Linda began using drugs again and meet a boy who would become her husband. "He began hitting me within months," Linda says. "I was beaten daily." It took nearly 2 decades before she joined a church and got clean. For a while things got better. She earned a Certificate in Counseling for Addiction. She built businesses and was seen as a 'success'. "I had over come my addiction and my marriage was now 'healthy' by everyone's standards. Yet I felt dead." In 2008 she tried to take her life. "I was held at the hospital for almost a month. When I left I went into Intensive Outpatient Therapy 5 days a week, four hours a day." In 2010 she'd had enough. "I left for a business trip and never returned home." Her life has improved but she knows she still has a long way to go. She pushes on "Telling this side of my story with out protecting anyone in the process is a new journey."

    Tonight's special guest is Jacque LaFountaine from Spokane, Washington, a long-time personal friend of Bill Murray and a NAASCA volunteer. Jacque's a retired RN with experience, among other things, in critical care, ER, and as a director of assisted living and an Alzheimer's unit. Abused from early childhood, her memories were repressed. She didn't remember much of her home life when she left at 18, depressed and suicidal but not understanding why. Jacque says, "Eventually I lived in Los Angeles and began to get repressed memories back and started therapy. I was glad to get the memories out but always felt like I was sharing into a vast wasteland of nothingness." Her mother had abused her with physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual trauma which started in the crib. "Therapists considered it ritual child abuse and torture." More trauma occurred in Los Angeles. "In the middle of this, I was a victim of attempted murder which just made my PTSD symptoms even worse." She relocated to Santa Barbara and later Spokane, continuing treatment, dealing with major depression, severe PTSD, and serious dissociative disorder with Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personalities). "In 2011, things came together for me. My PTSD symptoms were eliminated in 24 hours. I found my core personality (the one that's not an alter) and reconstructed my identity. As my identity strengthened my depression left." Jacque says, "I'm in the best place internally that I've ever been and am truly grateful." She says she's looking forward to the future, concluding, "I believe we all have to help each other which will help bring child abuse out to the general public. There is strength in numbers."

    Tonight's special guest is Amy Oestreicher from Westport, Connecticut, a survivor of sexual abuse as a teen, domestic violence and many physical challenges. Amy wears a lot of hats .. as a PTSD peer to peer specialist, artist, author, writer for The Huffington Post, award-winning health advocate, actress and playwright. She eagerly shares the lessons learned from trauma through her writing, mixed media art, performance and inspirational speaking. She's currently performing her one-woman autobiographical musical "Gutless & Grateful". Amy explains, "I had a voice teacher when I was 15 who I looked up to immensely." But, she says, "I had no idea he was grooming me for two years." When she was 17, he made his first move. "I went completely numb and left my body. I froze, stopped eating, feeling and being me. I was too in shock to even understand what was going on. The abuse went on for seven months, week after week because I was too afraid to tell anyone." She goes on, "The more he molested me, the less of me I felt I knew." The abuse stopped almost as suddenly as it had begun, when at 18 her stomach literally exploded due to an unforeseen blood clot. She fell into a coma only a week after her breaking silence about her abuse." When I awoke 6 months later, I was very confused, to say the least!" She determined to make something of this experience. "I devised a program that combines Broadway theatre with sexual assault awareness and mental health advocacy, in order to empower survivors of assault and to create a more compassionate, open community. I deliver this keynote to colleges and universities, to promote mental health, provide hope, help, and save lives."
