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."

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.

Tonight's special guest is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who's Executive Director at Help4Guys.org. Barbara's here once again to talk about the events that are planned in celebration of "Male Abuse Awareness Week" (MAAW) which is held each year during the first week of December. MAAW is an awareness campaign that was started by the P. Luna Foundation in 2008, and the website is an extension of that program. The main focus is to change the negative social stigma that goes along with the topic of males who are victims of sexual or emotional abuse and domestic violence. "Most abused males avoid therapy and treatment because they are too ashamed or afraid of being judged for doing so," according to the web site. "By bringing the subject to light once a year we hope to make this topic more socially acceptable and in return more men will feel comfortable enough to seek the help they desperately need but in many cases avoid." Since the awareness campaign's inception in 2008 we at NAASCA have been pleased to participate hand-in-hand with Barbara Ochoa, and Bill Murray has appeared at several of the live events. We too want to help men who were victims of past abuse break their silence, in order to inspire younger men into getting treatment. Like Barbara, we have seen more and more celebrities come forward and many more news stories reporting on males who are victims of abuse.
