Scudder's special feature on the life and Lived Experiences of Suicide Attempt Survivors with guests as he highlights their human struggles, emotional distress, mental health crisis and possible mental illness.

    Mr. Scudder's goal is to let people hear, understand and be empathetic to the hurt, pain and distress of someone who has attempted giving up their life and free themselves from their pain.

    Human Trafficking - A survivors story - Selina Deveau

    in Motivation

    Selina now lives a simple and blessed life and is grateful for every day, and now has a life she certainly never thought she would have.

    Selina is a mother of two bright and beautiful children ages six and sixteen. She calls them her miracles since she was told she would never be able to have children. She married her soul mate and best friend and they live on a small farm in the country surrounded by an apple orchid, beautiful mountains and land all around them.

    Selina is an artist and musician as well as an activist and advocate. She is an author of two books: “Sold at Six” and “Made in USA” which will be coming out in 2015. Writing them has been a hard process and a healing one also. She would have never called herself an author 3 months ago.

    Selina is on the advisory board for trafficking in America task force and the founder of M.A.T musicians against trafficking which is a collaboration of local and nonlocal musicians coming together to raise awareness and stop human trafficking. They have an amazing project in the works right now.

    She is also the founder of Frames for Freedom, which is a project she is doing with other survivors that are artists and photographers. The framed artwork /photography done by survivor's from all over the world that where trafficked and all the beautiful art/photo's are sold. A certain percent of the sales will go to survivor services and resources including rescue efforts the rest stays with the artist/photographer.

    Selina is also the founder of Jewelry for Justice: The Jewelry is handmade by survivors to empower them and teach them how to make an income from something they create themselves.

     She is also working on survivor stories: a collection of poems songs and stories done by survivors of trafficking from all over the world put into a book called Survivor Stories

    As we conclude the month of January and Human Sex Trafficking Awareness Month we want to work with families and loved ones who have to endure after effects of trauma and behaviors from the survivor/victim's experience. Not only does it affect the victim it effects the entire family and others they interact with. 

     We will identify many types of behaviors that you will encounter and learn how to identify and respond properrly how to respond and support. Some behaviors and topics we will address include; survivor's guilt/remorse, dynamics of a family, expectations of the victim and other's, trauma, guilt, grief, emotional baggage, physical scars, acting out, depression, suicide, sexual promiscuity, etc. 

    And last but definitely not least we will discuss the importance of counseling for the survivor and the family or support system surrounding the truama impacted on everyone involved. How does the family cycle continue to manifest itself after a trauma/crisis or to the next generation? How does family dynamics  and past hurts are systemic throughout generations?

    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Wendy Barnes

    in Motivation

    This is just some of what Wendy shares - "The sexual abuse I endured by my step-father as a child, shaped my beliefs to make me a perfect target for Greg when I was 15 yrs old. He drew me into his web by giving me a false taste of what it felt like to have worth, hope and to be loved. It felt nice to be special to someone - anyone. When the abuse started by Greg, I accepted it, still I knew in my heart that I was not worthy of any love or kindness. It wasn't long before he demanded that I prove my love for him. I listened to his instructions and in terror I followed his directions. With the intent to prove my love for him and with hope that I could earn his love in return, I turned my first trick. When I was finished, I violently threw up what felt like my soul. I no longer felt human, I now was a prostitute. I wanted to die. I wasn't the first girl he did this to and I wasn't the last. The prostitution ring that he built and ran sometimes contained as many as 15 girls at one time. The physical, emotional and psychological abuse we endured was horrific."

    Due to knowing Greg had been trafficking underage girls and not being able to do anything about it Wendy was sentenced to 2 years in prison and lost custody of her 3 children. She is grateful for that time in prison because she could then start the healing process and be free from the torture she had endored!!!

    Wendy has been free from that life for 16 yrs and free from prison for 12 years now. She holds a full time job and has a close relationship with all three of her children. She has learned that healing is a journey, in fact it may be a life long journey. She has learned that happiness is a choice that she gets to choose every day.
