    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1345

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Richard Sipe from La Jolla, California, a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor who earlier spent 18 years as a Benedictine monk and priest. Now married, Richard is devoted full time to research into the sexual and celibate practices of Roman Catholic bishops and priests. That path has lead him to the study of the sexual teaching of the church and its effects on behavior - especially sexual abuse of minors by clergy - and the tangle of sexual problems that some people claim are blocking every religious agenda and destroying beyond repair the credibility of the Catholic Church in sexual matters. The Academy Award winning Best Picture for 2016, "Spotlight," featured his words as part of their investigation into clergy abuse. Richard was trained specifically to deal with the mental health problems of Roman Catholic Priests. In the process of training and therapy, he conducted a 25-year ethnographic study of the celibate / sexual behavior of that population. His study, first published in 1990, is now considered a classic. Richard has published six books that explore these themes, including A Secret World and Celibacy in Crisis.' Widely interviewed by media he's known internationally and has participated in 12 documentaries on celibacy and priest sexual abuse aired by HBO, BBC, and other networks in the United States, United Kingdom, and France. Richard has no professional sympathy for the cardinals and bishops and other ranking church officials who cover up their crimes. "Some of them are so terrible," he says. "I mean the plain lying that I've seen, bishop after bishop saying, 'No, this was never true. I don't know anything. I can't remember anything.' And sometimes the bishop just smiles. One bishop said, 'I only lie when I have to.'"

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1344

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Nikki DuBose from Los Angeles, a child abuse survivor who was later abused as a young professional model. Among other things, Nikki advocates on her web site for better regulation of the modeling industry (she tells me about 40% of models have an eating disorder and that there's a lot of sexual abuse/harassment). Nikki also works closely with Matt Sandusky at the "Peaceful Hearts Foundation," where she serves on the Executive Board and is their Volunteer Director. Nikki says, "I wholeheartedly believe that full recovery is possible, but it starts with speaking out and reducing the shame and stigma that is so often attached to mental health issues." In her upcoming memoir, "Washed Away: From Darkness to Light," due out later this year, Nikki details how being sexually abused as a child led to a seventeen-year battle with serious mental health issues such as eating disorders, depression, self-harm, body dysmorphic disorder, substance abuse and sexual addictions. During her career as a professional model, she encountered a great deal of success, yet that prosperity came with a high price - one that often mirrored the sexual abuse from her childhood. Coming to a place of full healing has not been easy for Nikki, but she says, "Being an advocate is what allows me to wake up every day and feel truly alive. All of that pain that I lived with for so many years is now channeled into making a difference in society. Whatever issues you’re passionate about, use your voice and the resources you have; love yourself first and from there you can help to change the world."

    The Matt Duffin Show - Medical Marijuana Month, Trump'ed...

    in Radio

    My TBI is on 'hold' for the busy busy week's of April - so I could enjoy it!  Post Gala-days, scootin' with BICS and talking on the Indiana Capital steps on a bright, sunny 4/20 day.  Branden drove the 'bus' to Indy for both presentations this eve, and it simply rocked.  My thoughts to Sara.  


    Lots of interviews, lots of talks and discussions and speeches for the Indiana challenge towards making AT LEAST Medical Marijuana legal - and soon.  Maybe.  I sit in as the Patient Rep, and even spoke to the crowd of around 75-100 comfortable, but smokeless, advocates.  We had fun, for certain and passed along a good message.  We passed other items as well - more than a dozen in celebration.


     


    Donald Trump interupted our interview with Govnor Mike Pence, who is easily interupted by life in general.  They had coffee, the hallway doors to his office was open on this nice day, so 'somebody' heard us.  Unless they all had tea together.  Many had many items together afterwords, even the finest law officers in the United States had laughs together.  It was all in good nature with a purpose.  Mercadi took the WALK, I hobbled to a bench and 'prepared' my speech.  It was TBI special, I must admit.  Only one 'chase away' from the story, and I was given 3 minutes after the Congressman Carter.  They all dressed accordingly, I dressed in comfort of shorts and Astros Ball Jersey #7, Craig BIGGIO!


     


    Regardless, Vote.  But remember, The Buckeye found Indiana 'not worthy' of his campaign, and Cruz stood in the middle of the gym used for HOOSIERS and called the hoop/goal a "basketball ring"..  The Donald brought in Bobby Knight -tough one to top in this State.  Bernie has the pot vote, if those folks remember to vote.  No MJ ballots at this time - but JUST WAIT...
