Tonight's was originally planned to be a show dedicated to a special guest. But instead there was a robust discussion of a variety of topics, chiefly about the how media covers (and doesn't cover) the issues of child abuse and trauma. We also talked about the important role played by reliable government statistics. Criticism of how media and government presentations was directed at our ability as a group to impress upon the general public that the issues we cover, child abuse and trauma, are as important to them as almost anything else we consider a priority to address in America. Bill Murray, NAASCA founder, was joined by Carol Levine from New Jersey, our cio-host, and by Max "from Montana." Tonight's show featured NAASCA panelist's thoughts and ideas about how to engage the public and provide resources, services and programs to anyone with an interest in fighting against child abuse and trauma.
Inspiration~ Empowerment & BREAKTHROUGH! w/ Dr. Beverly L. Swanson A LIVE Radio Talk Show of Real People Sharing Real Stories of Great Trials, Great Faith & Great Victories!
Inspiration~ Empowerment & BREAKTHROUGH! Would like to welcome featured Guest Chad Fletcher Sr. Chad Fletcher became educated on child sexual abuse from the front line starting at the age of 7 until he turned 14. Chad grew up in Farmington Hills, Michigan. In 2010, he went public of his story on the Oprah Winfrey Show episode "200 Men Sexually Abused". Chad was a featured guest on the show and allowed his story to be profiled for the world to see so that other victims suffering would know that they were not alone. Upon his return from doing the show he came back with a desire to want to reach out to others so that innocent children would not be victimized. Chad says, "I am ready to begin doing something that I am 100% passionate about"! I have recently joined forces with the team at Humanity Preservation Foundation (HPF) to begin a Michigan chapter. HPF is a non-profit foundation that is dedicated to raising awareness and aiding in the prevention of Child Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence and Bullying. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 1 of 4 girls and 1 of 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. This is an Epidemic that can be stopped if we provide our children and the adults around them the facts needed to stop future abuse. JOIN US On The Air! BlogTalkradio.com/drbeverlylswanson

Financial elder abuse is on the rise in California. People are living longer due to advances in science, medicine, health, fitness and nutrition. At the same time, "seniors" (those over 65 years of age - which is still relatively "young" if you think about it) are some of the sole survivors of the "mortgage meltdown" and they are oftens the victims of financial fraud and "elder abuse." This husband and wife podcast discusses what elder abuse is, how to spot it, and the types of legal claims we handle as a California financial elder abuse law firm.
Common perpetrators of financial elder abuse
1. Attorneys (these professionals are in a position of "trust" and "confidence" and can unduly influence, coerce, misinform and cause seniors to make very bad financial decisions that can affect real estate, and stock portfolios). Attorney malpractice is another common claim in this area. We have seen "counseling" that has resulted in the loss of substantial equity in residential and commercial real estate estate.
2. Car dealerships (Car dealerships can try to "steal your trade" or engage in "bait and swtich advertising" or sock you away in a car loan that
5. Family (kids who see their parents as easy targets).
6. Mortgage brokers (lenders and loan officers can sock a senior away - and take exorbitant loan fees - to steer an elder into an unconscionable predatory loan (ex. a negative amrotization or "option arm loan") or fail to advise as to the advisability (or non-advisablity) of a reverse mortgage. These fees can be "taken" in bad faith resulting in serious daamges to an elder.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight's TOPIC: "Breaking The Bonds of Parental Alienation and Systemic Abuse" Nothing stirs up passions more than the controversy generated when parents are at war over the custody of a child. With the pathological 'win-lose' mentality of our family courts and CPS increasingly abducting and witholding children from loving parents to support the many industries that feed off commodifying our children, the system is aiding and abetting abuse, and reaping the financial rewards at the expense of our children and families. Join us as we speak with parents and advocates Keith Marsolek, Carolyn MacCloud and Marcie Harding who will be sharing their heartbreaking and frankly outrageous stories of alienation enabled by this system. Learn the steps they are taking to fight this devastating injustice both for themselves and others who are facing this brutal and overwhelming situation. We are also pleased to welcome back panelist, advocate and author Robin Karr, who's own incredible story remains one of the most corrupt and cruel examples of judicial terrorism we have ever encountered. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org

It is inconceivable that there are situations where people turn violent against those who have facial differences. But it does happen, and it must stop. Physical abuse, which also includes sexual abuse, has no place in a sane world. Living and attending to everyday life as part of the cleft and craniofacial community is difficult enough. This type of behavior makes it harder, and must be faced in spite of whatever fears keep the victims from doing so. Host Joe Rutland talks about this very personal area in this week's "CleftCast."
This radio show was prompted by me aofs a result seeing Bruce Lipton live not long ago.
This is a conversation that is very relevant to how we can recover from narcissistic abuse.
In this show I discuss how our old Darwinian and Newtonian science models rendered us powerless compared to the new science of epigenetics.
This is huge … really. Because it changes the entire concept of humankind.
Literally – I am not exaggerating.
Hence why I am really excited to be bringing you this show.

Tonight's special guest is Dusty Farrah Cooley from Nettleton, Mississippi, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, incest, and rape. "Looking back," she writes, "it's extremely difficult to understand how I survived it all. But I did, and with God's help, of course." She goes on, "I believe that speaking out concerning my abuse/rape is what 'my calling' is." Sexually abused from the ages of 8-15 years of age, Dusty reports she did what do most 'disturbed' children do at this age. They act out. "And that's what I did. I got into fights at school, resulting in being expelled. I was labeled a 'trouble-maker' by my teachers and parents." She got no help. "Nobody reached out to me during those years. Why, I even wrote a story concerning a young girl being sexually abused by her best friend's father, and still, nobody caught on. But I eventually made a turn around, when I accepted Jesus as my Savior. I finished high school and became an RN." Dusty Farrah describes herself as a Beautiful Survivor, writing, ".. it's kind of weird hearing myself say 'survivor.' Because for years I remember just remaining in bondage. Never would I have considered myself as a survivor. For as long as I can remember, I self-medicated, cut and put myself down." She continues, "I guess you can say I hated myself, even more than my abusers. But that was the OLD Farrah. I'm a fighter now." In fact she describes herself today as a warrior and conqueror. "I'm in a new place now, and I love where I'm at. I love where I am in my life now. No longer do I look at myself and see defeat and warfare."
