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.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your's. We are especially thankful to bring you a show stuffed with great topics. We'll lead off with discussion about the Los Angeles Dodgers hiring of rookie manager Dave Roberts and what his hiring could signal in terms of what the mindset of the Dodgers' Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi is regarding the team and next season.
What is a show given during Thanksgiving week without discussing the NFL? We will explain why Dallas Cowboys QB Tono Romo is a legitimate MVP candidate despite missing 7 games so far this year. We will also let you know whether we feel the Denver Broncos should continue to start Brock Osweiler if he continues to play well even if Peyton Manning recovers from his latest injury. Should Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly go back to college or is there another move he can make to salvage his NFL career?
Speaking of college football, USC football is going after someone big as far as their next head coach. Is it Brian Kelly, Chip Kelly, Pete Carroll or someone else of that ilk? We'll discuss.
It's been a weird season for both Los Angeles-based NBA teams. The Los Angeles Lakers are worse than anyone expected. The Los Angeles Clippers have bigger problems than just acclimating their new players We'll discuss the latest developments surrounding both teams.

Tonight's special guest is Debra Monk from Enfield, New Hampshire, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse from multiple perpetrators over several years throughout her early childhood and into her early teens. She's now become an anti-abuse advocate who's now writing a series of children's books addressing a topic that's close to her heart. "Most of my abusers were direct or close family members," Debra says. She explains the new book series for children touches on the tough but important topic of family violence and abuse, and what that might look like through the eyes and perspective of a child. That's because Debra eventually came to understand that there was a systematic cycle of abuse within her family that had already been going on for many generations. "I'll address family violence, such as domestic and intimate partner violence, sibling abuse, sexual abuse, incest, neglect and physical abuse. Abuse and malnourishment can create patterns and characteristics that when, if not dealt with appropriately may cause repeated cycles or systems of family violence and abuse to occur later on and well into their adulthood lives." Debra's published before. Her work "A Journey of Poetry from an Adult Survivor of Sexual Abuse" is available as an e-book and author Caroline De Chavigny included Debra's missive in her book, "Letter to a Monster." Debra says her mission and goal is to create positive change that reduces the risk for violence in already broken and volatile homes.
