Michael Broussard's interactive stage show about childhood sexual abuse, "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor", has been praised by mental health professionals and survivors as a healing tool.
Now presented in partnership with the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse, "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" takes a unique approach to fostering an open dialogue on the impacts of abuse. While Michael is telling his story, he also pauses for several feedback breaks throughout the performance, inviting audience members to ask questions, make comments and share their own stories. The debut of the show this past June saw several survivors doing just that: sharing their stories in a safe and supportive space.
"Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" will be staged again on Sunday, November 9th at 5pm and 7pm at the Adrienne Theater in Philadelphia.
Clinician Megan Doyle of Survivors of Abuse in Recovery called the show "a powerful and moving testimonial to the impact of childhood sexual abuse throughout a lifetime" and said "I would love to see the show reach a larger audience to empower and educate a broader community."
Psychologist Elizabeth Dale Blair said "As a psychologist who treats survivors of childhood sexual abuse, I would highly recommend this show to anyone who struggles with the emotional aftermath of these traumas."

This Thriver Story is about Yvette, a gay women who suffered a narcissistic relationship.
I was thrilled when Yvette came forward, deeply wanting to share her story for the gay community … because over the years people have emailed and said to me “My narcissistic abuse situation with a same sex relationship, can you please write about that Melanie?”, whereas truly from what I have seen up close and personal with the numerous gay clients I have done energetic healing work with, is that same sex narcissistic dynamics are identical to heterosexual ones.
My great friend Eric Casaccio the director of the movie “Narcissist” also agrees. He too reports that many people in the heterosexual community have reported to him, in his travels world-wide, the identical narcissistic abuse incidents that the gay community have experienced.
What I think is wonderful, is that we now have a Thriver, Yvette, who can help gay and lesbian people identify with narcissistic abuse and recovery.
Whether you are same sex orientated or hetrosexual, if you have been narcissistically abused, I know you will relate and get a lot out of this radio show.

Himself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, striving to pull something positive out of the experience with his stage show "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor".
In the show, he tells the story of the abuse I suffered and of the path to healing he found. Throughout the performance there are "feedback breaks" where audience members can comment, ask questions and share their own stories.
When the show debuted as part of the Philadelphia SoLowFest this past June, he was gratified to find many survivors sharing their stories in an atmosphere that was 100% safe and supportive.
After the debut, he partnered with the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse, to better promote "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" and reach more survivors.

Who benefits from withholding sex?What is pushing you away? Let's get to the root of the problem!
Is Refusing Sex a Sign of Emotional Abuse?
Many women think of sex as their ultimate power when it comes to relationships. Even a joking comment, "Haha! No bootie for you, patootie!" can make a man's chest clench in anticipated agony!
When she's not joking, and instead uses her sexual availability to manipulate her boyfriend or husband into doing things her way, she's engaging in a form of emotional abuse. This passive-aggressive technique may be overt or covert. She might say she doesn't want to play unless he comes around to what she wants, or she may feign headaches, tiredness, or other ailments to avoid intimacy.
It can be a slippery subject, because man

Tonight's special guest is Bo Budinsky, a returning NAASCA family member from Texas, who's a child abuse survivor and a tireless child protection and adult survivor advocate. In January 2013 he founded Save One Survivor, after a life of addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers and homeless. As a child he'd been repeatedly violated. Bo knew himself as a broken person, deeply troubled and hopelessly addicted. He spent years working on himself, grabbing onto anything available which he thought would be healing. In September, 2010, Bo was selected to appear on Oprah Winfrey's now-famous 200 Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse show. Bo shares, "I had an epiphany. It became clear what my struggle all these years had been about. It was about the business of preparing me to be in a place where I could be of service to others with the same plight." He continues, "Only these last few years have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life." Bo says "I have one favor to ask. Please speak up, loudly, if you have even an inkling that a child is being sexually abused. Living with the effects is torturous. And if you think it is not very prevalent listen to this: 1 in 3 women AND 1 in 5 men are sexually abused before they are 18. What is at stake is the innocence of a precious child."
