    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.


    We are a production of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery,Fndr/CEO 'Trish' McKnight, Author/Advocate/Speaker/Writer;'My Justice'

    National Crime Victim's Rights Week & Sexual Assault Awareness

    in Radio

    This week U.S. observes National Crime Victims’ Rights week—promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. Millions of Americans each year are victimized by crime—acts of terrorism, violent crime, human trafficking, hate crimes, financial fraud, child abuse, cyber crime, kidnapping, bank robbery...the list goes on. And the FBI’s Office for Victim Assistance (OVA) is responsible for ensuring that victims of crimes investigated by the Bureau are afforded the opportunity to receive the services and notifications they are entitled to and the assistance they need to cope. http://www.fbi.gov/news/news_blog/2015-national-crime-victims-rights-week


    Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign


    The OVA manages the day-to-day operational aspects of our victim assistance program in each of our 56 field offices, where our victim specialists work with those who have suffered physical, emotional, and/or financial harm as a result of a federal crime. In addition, OVA is also responsible for providing training and information that equips FBI agents and other Bureau personnel to work effectively with victims


    Sexual violence including child sexual abuse crosses all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. According to the Child Maltreatment 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Children's Bureau,  60,956 cases of child sexual abuse were reported in the US 2013—9.0 percent of the total number of reported maltreatment cases that year.

    MMSRS #33 - Military Ball Etiquette and the Male MilSpouse

    in Military

    Join host Dave Etter and various callers as they discuss military ball etiquette and how it pertains to the male military spouse. Questions always arise what to wear, where to obtain, what is appropriate, etc. Also, who does what in various ball program events like toasts, receiving line, posting of colors, grog bowl, etc. So, if you were wondering what is different for us guys, this is the broadcast/podcast to listen to! Live call-in number is (516) 453-9167, join us!


    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based radio show, hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.
