    Healing Addiction, Part 1- Child Sexual Abuse and Addiction

    in Lifestyle

    Sometimes the memories are too much to hold inside.  Sometimes the pain just gets too big.  Medicating our pain as survivors of child sexual abuse is one way to survive.

    But as long as we are addicted, we will never thrive.  Addiction kills relationships, careers, healing and spiritual growth.  Addiction takes the life out of us and returns the destruction of all we hold dear in exchange for killing the pain.

    David Pittman, director of Together We Heal, knows both the pain of abuse AND the pain of addiction.  And now he knows the joy of helping others get free from both.  Join David and Misa as they bring hope for healing from addiction and child abuse.

    Ask A Sex Abuse Survivor

    in Motivation

    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."

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1073

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Stacie Kelly from Victoria BC, an abuse survivor and activist who's serving as the Coordinator for 1st Annual #NoMoreShame Conference 2015, being put on by Trauma University which will be held June 26, 27 & 28th in Portland, Oregon. It's described as "For Survivors. By Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse." Born and raised an Oregonian, Stacie describes herself as, "an exceptionally positive individual who enjoys staying busy." But, she explains, "About three years ago I was diagnosed with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). I am a survivor of a decade of incest - an unfortunate multi-generational pattern of abuse that extends as far back as three generations ago. I am on bi-daily antidepressant medication(s) and am currently in weekly somatic counseling." She says, "Childhood trauma is still a relatively new field of study and it is often overshadowed by Veterans and/or people with Traumatic Brain Injuries. My hope is to shed light on the daily life of someone struggling with mental wellness and provide insight on the impact of sexual abuse and silence." And true to form she's not just sitting back waiting for others to make further developments in the field. "I am currently working in a volunteer capacity as a Conference Coordinator for Trauma Recovery University. I speak every day to survivors around the globe who are interested in participating in our conference. It is survivor led and born out of passion to break the cycle of shame, silence and abuse."
