Let's talk to someone who has been working with victims and families for over 30 years, as she gives us a very close personal insight in how this act, which so many believe is gentle and loving, will never harm the child; let's find out exactly what she has seen in helping survivors & families learn to cope and rebuild. There are many challenges you hear me talk about all the time, write about them, speak about them, and have helped my share of persons, but Ms. Wilson is the expert we welcome to answer your concerning questions. Let me ask you - Would you make the call to report/help a child in need, especially if you believe it to be a close member of your family? What types of backlash might we expect in reporting? Is it really anonymous to make a report?

This week my guest is Terry Matlen MSW, author of The Queen of Distraction: How Women with ADHD Can Conquer Chaos, Find Focus, and Get More Done.
Do you rule the realm of disorganization, clutter, and chaos? Are you constantly battling to get things done? Are you ready to give up and toss your day planner into the dungeon (otherwise known as your closet)? If so, you might just be The Queen of Distraction. And whether or not you’ve been formally diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you probably already know that something’s got to give.
The Queen of Distraction presents practical skills to help women with ADHD achieve focus and balance in all areas of life, whether it’s at home, at work, or in relationships. Psychotherapist Terry Matlen delves into the feminine side of ADHD—the elements of this condition that are particular to women, such as: relationships, skin sensitivities, meal-planning, parenting, and dealing with out-of-control hormones. In addition, the book offers helpful tips and strategies to get your symptoms under control, and outlines a number of effective treatment options for you to pursue.
From getting dressed in the morning, to making it to a job interview, to planning dinner—sometimes just getting through the day can be an ordeal for a woman with ADHD. If you’ve been accused of getting lost in your own world, maybe it’s time to make a change. If you’re ready to start getting organized and stop leaving your groceries in the car, this book can help. It’s more than just a survival guide; it’s an ADHD how-to to help you thrive!

Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude
By Janet Lehman, MSW
We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, kids learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.
People wonder why kids have gotten so much more disrespectful these days—we see children and teens arguing with adults (or ignoring them outright), using foul language, copping an attitude, and not using manners or respecting those in authority. Sadly, this has become the norm for many children and teens. In my opinion, it really is a different world right now than the one we grew up in. Movies, music, video games and television all seem to glorify a disrespectful, angry, rude way of dealing with others. This means that in some ways we have to work harder as parents to teach our kids to be respectful. Added to this is the fact that parents are also busier than ever before, which makes it much harder to respond immediately to our kids. Let’s face it, it’s easier to let things slide when you’re worn out and stressed from working so hard.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 9 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 9) - 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 9: "Made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others." Step 9 reminds you once again that you cannot overcome personal difficulty alone. You pray for the willingness to be willing. If you have people on your list where there has been mutual harm being done you may have difficulty with this step. There may some who you do not feel it necessary to make amends. It is advisable, again after consulting with a trusted advisor, that you start making amends to those folks on your “Right Now” list, then your second list and then your third list. And finally, you will re-visit your last list, the “Never!” column. Becoming willing allows you to prepare yourself for this work through prayer by using of any tools that support your efforts to overcome personal roadblocks. ~~ 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 10 & TRADITION 10. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Parkinson’s look-alikes at first glance, many individuals with PSP, CBD, and MSA, often see multiple medical professionals before they receive an accurate medical diagnosis. Once diagnosed, they often sadly realize that their disease has a much more aggressive and less treatable course than PD. As patients, some impairment in speech and/or swallowing,is often an early symptom requiring referral to speech therapy. Individuals diagnosed with these rare neurodegenerative diseases are all struggling in their own way to cope with the daily effects of the disease on their body, family, and emotions.
My Guest, Trish Caruana, MSW is Vice President of Programs and Education for Cure PSP, where she works to broaden and develop new avenues of support for those impacted by PSP/CBD and MSA. Cure PSP provides education and public awareness about the impact of these diseases on patients and their families. Public awareness, advocacy,and improving accurate diagnoses and treatment are Cure PSP's goals. Ms. Cauana has created innovative programming and widened the reach of education and support services for patients, care partners and healthcare professionals, and is currently working to establish new international collaborations and partner with related entities to establish a Global Database.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 8 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 8) - 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 8: "Make a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all." Step Eight is about unfinished business. This step sets the stage for you to relate to yourself and others in a new way. The first order of business here is to define “harm” and “amends”. Harm includes the following: damage, impairment, wound, injury, trauma, and change for the worse, any act of sexual abuse, incest, physical injury, and psychological harm, financial or emotional damage. If you committed harm the way to restore the balance is to make an amends. Amends includes a verbal acknowledgement of what was done, accompanied by a change in behavior. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA.
