    "CleftCast" ... Painful Physical Abuse Must Stop

    in Health

    It is inconceivable that there are situations where people turn violent against those who have facial differences. But it does happen, and it must stop. Physical abuse, which also includes sexual abuse, has no place in a sane world. Living and attending to everyday life as part of the cleft and craniofacial community is difficult enough. This type of behavior makes it harder, and must be faced in spite of whatever fears keep the victims from doing so. Host Joe Rutland talks about this very personal area in this week's "CleftCast."

    Spring into Action - Balancing the physical and spiritual

    in Spirituality

    Too often in life we are encouraged to put ourselves last. The truth is... we need to realize that the self comes first! The 'whole' is comprised of a multitude of distinct facets and playing your part to the fullest requires you navigate the world in truth with the full understanding that Self Is Necessary.


    Today's episode of Self is Necessary focuses on the recognition of the balancing of physical and spiritual components when creating a life for ourselves in a physical body here on Planet Earth. Come join Delrae J Bantz and Mary K Weinhagen of the Life Learning Center of Self as we talk about both sides of the coin, so to speak. We'd love to have you join the conversation!

    Tonight's special guest guest is Chuck Prinzen from Fairfield California, a survivor and activist who, as an educator, has worked with youth for many years. His current project, Me Inc Now, is being developed to offer guidance to teens (and their parents). Chuck says whet he survived "cycles of life," and says his story of abuse is no different than many others who have experienced abuse, the same torment, pain, feelings of loneliness and despair. "My journey from nothingness to a fulfilling life was not altered by one specific event," he writes, "but a series of events over many years, change came one thought at a time. It was not till I was older that I could clearly see the past; they say that hindsight is twenty-twenty, mine was not, it was blurry." He goes on, "The first step to seeing the past clearly was when a kindhearted gift of love was given to me by a stranger." Chuck's principal goal to help instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today's youth, and that's that Me.Inc.Now (me expressing I need change now) is all about! The mission of Me.Inc.Now is to instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today's youth. A brighter future can be achieved by incorporating cultural change in our youth of today through understanding lessons of the past to bridge the ever growing generation gap. Change is built upon a foundation of communication, listening, and love. Me.Inc.Now is committed to inspiring positive thoughts and breaking cycles of anger and resentment that prevent young individuals from being the best version of themselves. "I am thankful for learning that “love” is most the powerful tool in my emotional toolbox," Chuck writes, no more sorrow and loneliness, no more bruises, no more pain, no more fear.

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 11 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, 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 11: "Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out." Step Eleven is the daily practice and experience of deepening your awareness of your Higher Power through prayer and meditation. You are capable of prayer and meditation, regardless of your background or history. If you set aside the time daily, you can reach for whatever you believe is greater than, deeper than, or beyond yourself. Step Eleven also assumes that by now you have a conscious awareness of your Higher Power, and you are drawn to deepening that connection. ~~ 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 12. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Tonight's special guest is Jay Lore from Laurel. Maryland, child abuse survivor and author  of the book "Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Learn: How I went to a party one night for twenty years and lived to tell about it." Jay is transgendered from woman to man, and agrees this was a part of his recovery, of "being comfortable living inside his own skin." That wasn't always the case. "I was 4 years old when it started, I don't know at what age the physicality stopped. I was 32 when I first spoke it out loud to someone." Because of the abuse, Jay turned to drugs early on. "I did my first drugs at age 11. LSD, to be exact. It escalated from there. In group my councilor used to get me to read my drug list because it was so extensive and there were things she'd never heard of. There were three suicide attempts. "I was a cutter. I loved the feel of the blade, the sting as it pierced my skin, the pain told me I was able to feel .. something. I lost my kids." Eventually Jay called an 800 drug line. That was in 1987, and Jay's been clean now for over 28 years. "I've been telling my story every chance I get," he says, "to anyone who will listen and some who don't want to hear it." He offers his book for free. Jay now lives with his oldest daughter and her family. He attends and serves at church faithfully. "It's about reaching that one someone that needs to hear my story as only I can tell it. To get that one to realize there is hope and love and light. And most importantly, that they need never walk alone again."
