    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1101

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Connie Valentine, M.S. from Davis, CA, a survivor and activist representing the CA Protective Parents Association where the mission is to protect children from incest and family violence through research, advocacy and education. They work primarily with non-offending parents in custody disputes when children report physical or sexual abuse. Connie writes, "I am a survivor of extreme abuse. I was amnestic for all of it until middle age but had many of the symptoms of a trauma survivor. After a long arduous recovery, I am finally happy, joyous and free." And she's dedicating her self to this worthy issue. "Parental alienation groups are not what they seem," she says. "The term is used to strip children from mothers trying to protect the children from physical and sexual abuse, and give the children to the abusers both in family court and CPS. They are the exact opposite of real child protection." A message on the CPPA web site explains, "You may be told that you have to "accept" the court's decision when your child is placed with the identified abuser. No moral citizen should be expected to accept what is wholly unacceptable: the willful sacrifice of a child to a life of rape and/or battery." It concludes, " On our website you will find information, case histories, articles, resources, research and links to other websites. You will also find ideas, a growing community of protective parents, friendships, and a glimmer of hope in this dark world in which you find yourself."

    The people gave Christianson and Fladager power

    in News

    The people gave Sheriff Adam Christianson and DA Birgit Fladager power and they realize that it is not easily taken away.


    That is why there is little if any accountability for prosecutorial abuse. Rather than focusing on legitimate crime and public safety they pander to those they desire to protect.


    We have different standards for different groups in the application of the law.

    TREATMENT and RECOVERY: The Therapeutic Community (TC)

    in Self Help

    Show Topic:  The everyday goals of the TC are compassion, achievement, discipline, and accountability / responsibility achieved through community life based on a social learning model, and created in formal and informal settings. The beliefs that are essential to the TC are that a person can change, and that a group can foster this change.  The individual must at some point take responsibility, but going through the motions is ok as a stopgap measure until the beliefs are integrated. We'll discuss the five core concepts of the TC and the many tools used to facilitate them.

We are a long-term senior care facility for dogs and cats, along with adoptions.

    Understanding Human Trafficking/Sex Slavery in the United States

    in Politics

    Human trafficking is the modern form of slavery, with illegal smuggling and trading of people, for forced labor or sexual exploitation.


    Trafficking is officially defined as: the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by means of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, or abuse of power of a position of vulnerability for the purpose of exploitation. Human trafficking is not synonymous with forced migration or smuggling.


    In the U.S., human trafficking tends to occur around international travel-hubs with large immigrant populations, notably California and Texas. The U.S. Justice Department estimates that 17,500 people are trafficked into the country every year, but the true figure could be higher, because of the large numbers of undocumented immigrants. Those being trafficked include young children, teenagers, men and women and can be domestic citizens or foreign nationals. According to the Department of State's statistics from 2000, there are approximately 244,000 American children and youth that are at risk for sex trafficking each year. Of these children and youth, 38,600 were originally runaways.

    Between Two Gods -- Write Stuff -- 5/26/2015

    in Entertainment

    In romantic movies there's the classic plot of a man or a woman caught between two people. Both are desirable but in different ways. The classical storyline is the girl who's caught in the clutches of desire for the 'bad boy' and the 'good man'. The appeal of the bad boy with his devil-may-care smile, dark looks, or rebellious life. The steadfastness and dependability of the good man has his attractiveness as well.  In the movies, it's a great story to watch unfold as the heroine decides who she'll choose. 


    In the spiritual realm, no one wants to be caught between two Gods. One is a God of love. The other, a God of hate. The one who hates you demands more and more from you until you feel you can't go any further. The one who loves you seems to be so far away you can't reach Him. When you call his name it’s as if He's not even listening. The God of hate however shows up on time to tell you just how wrong you are, how unworthy you are and how you'll never match up to His standards.  

    No one wants to be in a tug-of-war of this nature. No one.   

    On this episode of the Write Stuff, we'll be talking with Trudy Harder Metzger author of the memoir Between Two Gods. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app today. Any way you can, tune in
