    Reality Bytes - Surviving Domestic Abuse

    in Relationships

    All of us have come into contact with someone in an abusive situation at least once in our lives, or perhaps we were the victim of domestic abuse ourselves. What most people neither know or understand is that there is a lot more to breaking the cycle of abuse than just walking away from the abusive relationship. Sometimes it is about completely changing who you are and how you think, but mostly it is about healing and finding your confidence again.


    On today's show we will be discussing how to break the cycle of abuse and get a second chance at a good life. We will be speaking with victims of abuse that have broken the cycle, and asking them how they did it and how their lives changed post abuse.


    The phone lines will be open so if you feel you have something to contribute to the discussion please do call in! (646)716-6583

    Breathing Fire...Surviving childhood abuse

    in Women

    “When the universe sends you a miracle, and then asks you to surrender to the journey that is about to unfold, you have two choices. You can politely say thanks-but no-thanks, or you can commit your heart and soul to doing something entirely on faith...  Breathing Fire, began as a book for others who, like author Chris Davis, had survived childhood abuse, but it quickly transformed into a modern-day fairy tale. 


    As women, we need to talk openly about topics that have been kept in locked boxes on the shelf.  There is no need to feel shame for something that happened that we had no control over.  I support courageous women like Chris who not only survive, but empower others to transform their lives to be happy.

    One in every five girls and one in every twenty boys is sexually abused. For both genders, this abuse most often occurs between the ages of seven and thirteen. The majority of the time children are abused by someone they know: a father, a brother, a neighbor or babysitter. It can be a one-time incident or it can be repetitive over the course of years.

    Surviving Sexual Abuse

    in Lifestyle


    The human desire to be safe is a driving force that guides our every step. We want to be safe in our relationships, our homes and on the streets we travel. But safety is not afforded to all of us.  Women and men who have encountered physical and sexual abuse at the hands of strangers or loved ones no longer feel safe in the world and have to find guidance to escort them back to a space of inner security. Join us on Saturday, January 11 at 3:00pm for a poignant conversation with a survivor of sexual abuse. Learn about her initial physical and soul struggles and glean wisdom for your own journey from her victory over the early obstacles that delayed finding true freedom from the ordeal.

    Tonight's special guest is Yanette (Lola Lola) Novoa, LCSW, from Miami, a child abuse survivor who studied psychology at Florida International University and is now writing a guide related to the issues of child abuse and trauma. Lola is the Founder and Director of Find The Way, LLC, and is publishing a new guide related to learning how to heal from child abuse and trauma. She says, "I know the pain, I know how it feels." Lola's childhood was taken away. She had been assaulted and raped from the age of 4 to the age of 12, ending in an illegal abortion at 12 in the presence of the perpetrator who forever changed her life. The new guide book, "Dare to Let Go and "Thrive": A Self Help Guide for Learning to Thrive After Experiencing Sexual Abuse", will be out next year. It invites the reader to learn the fundamental difference between "Thriving" versus surviving. Surviving is being able to function within a society. "Thriving" leads to living a meaningful life. Former victims of sexual assault can use the steps and strategies in this self help guide to point the way in becoming the thriving individual they are meant to be. Ms Novoa believes the key to all malice is "Prevention." In the long run, it is easier and cheaper to prevent than to treat. She specializes in working and assisting individuals of all ages that have suffered sexual abuse and are in need of finding their way to living a more meaningful life via different therapeutic techniques. Lola says, "I put together this guide mainly to .. give you some techniques to solve your own problems related to the long term effects of sexual abuse that you are carrying with you either consciously or unconsciously .. to be the thriving individual that you were meant to be.

    Tonight's special guest is Robert Nelson, a survivor of child sexual abuse who, in spite of being sexually abused by a teacher when in school and dealing with the associated trauma, became an internationally recognized speaker and consultant. When in his late 40s, Nelson began to actively confront his childhood abuse. In addition to seeking therapy, Robert became active on the government affairs front, and he's currently a Member of the Board of Directors at Justice4PAKids. The athletic trainer at Nelson’s high school, a marathon runner, befrended him. Robert was 15 and naturally he felt special. After their run one day, the teacher began the pattern of sexual abuse that would last until Robert's senior year. The man made Robert feel as if he were his friend, that he could trust him. He gave Robert access to his mobile home and let him sleep there in the middle of the day where he had an array of gay magazines. He also gave Robert his sports car to drive, and money. When Robert was 17 the trainer took him to an over night professional conference at a hotel and made him sleep in his room. To this day, the trainer continues to work with children at a Pennsylvania high school. In fact, after retiring at the collegiate level as a head athletic trainer the abuser went back to the high school level as a part-time trainer where he could again be amongst children. Robert has become a passionate anti-abuse advocate, lobbying for statute of limitations reform and for child sexual abuse to be added as an exception to the sovereign immunity defense that shields public officials from being sued. Nelson is a graduate of the Ohio State University with a degree in Criminology and Sociology.

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 1 - 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." Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 1: "We admitted we were powerless over the abuse and trauma of our youth -- that our lives had become unmanageable." The survivor’s decision to begin a process of healing begins with the admission of what happened to them. This involves working through the defenses employed to shun from consciousness the excruciatingly painful memories of the traumatic events. Having passed through this phase of remembering (in any way possible), the acceptance of the truth of the traumatic experience moves the survivor towards resolution. Thus begins the creation of an internal, healing space for the survivor to feel what remained frozen in time, banished and unwelcome in consciousness. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. He founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 2 ~~ See our web page: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka Edery at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com
