    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1286

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Cheri Roberts from Lincoln City, Oregon. Cheri is a prolific journalist, who suffered many forms of (sexual, emotional and physical) abuse as a child and her series offers voices from other adult survivors supported by leading experts on the topic of pedophilia, incest and molestation. Cheri is a weekly talk-show host and producer for "Challenging the Rhetoric" (#CTR) every Wednesday. She also hosts a special First Thursdays series called, Sickness of Silence (#SOS) addressing childhood sexual abuse. The talk show description explains, "The culture of silence lives on in every generation molding each like the one that came before it. Silence enables abuse, but our words have always held the power to stop it. It is our inability to listen to and share uncomfortable truths that have allowed families to maintain their semblance of normalcy." Cheri suffered abuse as a child, but most notably was sexually abused by several uncle's and a couple of her mother's boyfriends. The sexual abuse began at the age of 3 when Cheri's uncle and aunt became her legal guardians amidst the drug-fueled backdrop of America's sexual revolution. Cheri has spoken openly on the topic of her abuse for decades and feels the shaming of the abuser is also the shaming of the child. As she says, "Shame is what keeps secrets." Outside of her personal life, Cheri is a much endorsed writer, investigative journalist, coach and marketer. As a freelance writer and prominent activist, Cheri lives her life “out-loud” challenging the system with her back turned against the status quo of the failed corporate media.

    This One Step - Older Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

    in Psychology

    Tuesday


    Speaking the truth to your family.


    Telling your family that you were molested as a child is about the hardest part of breaking your silence.  Many of us were molested by a family member who is respected and loved by most.  You will begin to stack the reasons and excuses as to why you can’t or shouldn’t tell your family in your head and it sounds very reasonable in your head, but you know that it has to be done.


    Breaking your silence to someone you trust is just opening the old infected wound and letting the poison out, but as adults we all know that our wound is not going to truly heal if we don’t let the doctor cut it open and clean it out completely.  We are adults that were traumatized as children.  We know better now.  We are not little boys and girls and we have to set the example for others and show ourselves that we deserve being healthy and getting healing.  We have to refuse to allow our molesters have power over us another day!  You have to stop looking over your shoulder and walking on egg shells.  This is what happened and it was not your fault and it is time to experience your life as it should be!

    This One Step - Older Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

    in Psychology

    Monday -              Release YOUR Pain


                            Let Go of YOUR Suffering


                            Break YOUR Silence


    Monday’s show is dedicated to survivors who need to take that one step and reveal the truth.  Please don’t think of this special step as being exposed to the world and fearing the worst from people if you tell us what happened to you as a child, but instead know that you have been traumatized enough.  You never did anything wrong.   You deserve and should demand that this load of crap that has been dumped on you be cleaned off of you and out of you!! This trauma is no longer yours!!  Take your poisonous secret, put it in a bag and throw it in the trash.  It is out, gone and never to return because you can’t be a victim ever again!!!  He no longer has that power over you!! 


    It is very true that the damage that he or she has caused is very real and you probably feel tore up from the floor up, but that is just it!  You are now able to heal.  You have stopped the damage and the profuse bleeding and the painful recovery begins.  The healing path is stretched as far as your eyes can see and in fact, the ending is never seen by our eyes, but the path is a different path.  It is a life being surrounded by people who support us and we seek healthy people and make healthier choices. 


    Welcome!  And it all begins with This One Step.

    Gang Families: How Can A Child Break Away?

    in Women

     Adults often complain about youth gang violence as if young people are orchestrating the drug trafficking and gun toting that has disrupted peaceful community life. The fact is, gangs are run by grown people, and the organized crime network that recruits and trains children is made up of generations of families that prepare their children from childhood to run the "family business." How does a young person "leave" a gang when the gang is his or her family? How does a young person stand up to bullying by gangs, when the adults in the community won't stand up to the adult gang leaders living in their midst?  Why are we pretending this is a phenomenon of a few "misbehaving children" instead of recognizing it for the crime syndicate that it is? How do we, the adults, root out the drug trafficking that fuels the gang wars, when we, the adults, are the customers for the drug sellers? Photojournalist Marcus Robinson discusses the recent shooting death of youth activist Matthew Williams and the  gang activities that fuel the violence.

To not be sued for not performing "same sex" marriages or for teaching against SIN in your local churches. The Pastor Protection Act is not an attempt, discrimination, or minimizing anyone's choices. However, this is a solid attempt to take a stand FOR righteousness in Christ according to His Word. It's not about whether you're straight, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Tune in to hear more!

  • CUTV News Radio spotlights Janet Green of Guiding Inspiration

    in Self Help

    Chicago, IL – Making a change is often fraught with fear, which causes people to resist change and continue down the familiar path. If you really want change, the support of a professional coach can be invaluable.


    Janet Green is a professional intuitive, holistic breakthrough coach and the founder of Guiding Inspiration where she teaches women how to empower themselves.


    “I love working with others who have been pushing for change in their lives but need that extra support to help them find the key that reconnects them to their passions and unique gifts,” says Janet. “It’s so amazing to see people create miracles in their lives after coaching them.”


    Janet noticed that all women across the board were struggling with the new idea that you can have it all: career and family. We are in a new paradigm where it is entirely possible to destroy the limiting beliefs that have held women back from accessing their infinite possibilities.


    Indeed, Janet says tapping into our infinite wisdom is a process of remembering. Before we grew up, we had a lot of dreams, ambitions and ideas of how life was going to be. That’s the sweet spot. “What was it like when you still had the wonder of a child?”


    Janet says her favorite client is a woman who has devoted herself to serving others for much of her lifetime, often at her own expense, and is now ready to serve herself as well. Janet wants to help women find that place where they can actually be happy making money, having a great relationship, and being healthy while doing what they love and making a difference in the world.


    That could be considered a tall order, but women are expert multi-taskers and do it all the time. Janet’s coaching helps them finesse their transformation.
