Tonight's special guest is Linda Dueling from Omaha, Nebraska, a child abuse survivor and active NAASCA volunteer family member. Linda was sexually abused and eventually raped by her Grandpa. This went on until she was about 8 years old. Later, at 12, she would 'fall in love' with a 20 year old who introduced her to IV drugs. At 15 she ended up living on the streets with a boy and they were eventually arrested for 'breaking and entering' when they tried to find shelter. He was sent to Juvenile Hall, but Linda was released to her mother. "Mom slapped and hit me the whole walk home about 12 blocks." She ran away again and experienced a horrible gang rape by a group of 'friends'. Linda says. "I know GOD saved me that night." Linda began using drugs again and meet a boy who would become her husband. "He began hitting me within months," Linda says. "I was beaten daily." It took nearly 2 decades before she joined a church and got clean. For a while things got better. She earned a Certificate in Counseling for Addiction. She built businesses and was seen as a 'success'. "I had over come my addiction and my marriage was now 'healthy' by everyone's standards. Yet I felt dead." In 2008 she tried to take her life. "I was held at the hospital for almost a month. When I left I went into Intensive Outpatient Therapy 5 days a week, four hours a day." In 2010 she'd had enough. "I left for a business trip and never returned home." Her life has improved but she knows she still has a long way to go. She pushes on "Telling this side of my story with out protecting anyone in the process is a new journey."

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 4) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 4: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at what traumata shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 5 & TRADITION 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

Tonight's special guest is Jacque LaFountaine from Spokane, Washington, a long-time personal friend of Bill Murray and a NAASCA volunteer. Jacque's a retired RN with experience, among other things, in critical care, ER, and as a director of assisted living and an Alzheimer's unit. Abused from early childhood, her memories were repressed. She didn't remember much of her home life when she left at 18, depressed and suicidal but not understanding why. Jacque says, "Eventually I lived in Los Angeles and began to get repressed memories back and started therapy. I was glad to get the memories out but always felt like I was sharing into a vast wasteland of nothingness." Her mother had abused her with physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual trauma which started in the crib. "Therapists considered it ritual child abuse and torture." More trauma occurred in Los Angeles. "In the middle of this, I was a victim of attempted murder which just made my PTSD symptoms even worse." She relocated to Santa Barbara and later Spokane, continuing treatment, dealing with major depression, severe PTSD, and serious dissociative disorder with Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personalities). "In 2011, things came together for me. My PTSD symptoms were eliminated in 24 hours. I found my core personality (the one that's not an alter) and reconstructed my identity. As my identity strengthened my depression left." Jacque says, "I'm in the best place internally that I've ever been and am truly grateful." She says she's looking forward to the future, concluding, "I believe we all have to help each other which will help bring child abuse out to the general public. There is strength in numbers."

With so many different personalities in schools, as parents, we often find ourselves dealing with social problems or other conflicts our children are having with their peers. With the child’s attention being focused on the problem, learning is often compromised. Join the APS teachers as we explore this topic and share tools that can change the difficulties and struggles children sometimes have with their peers.

Also, did you know that the Christian Post is reporting that the FBI busted a terrorist who wanted to shoot up a megachurch with 6000 members in Detroit. Now think about this, Michigan is the place that is considered the Islamic hub in America and they were targeting a megachurch that was most likely a Christian or Protestant church. The article doesn't say specifically which one, however, doing a search on megachurches in that area, there are no large churches that aren't Christian.
