THEME: Moving Beyond Psychological and Verbal Abuse
INTERVIEW GUEST: Debbie Zoub, MSW
Debbie Zoub, MSW, is a clinical social worker and a survivor of abuse. She has spent much of her twenty five year career working with all types of abuse, both as a therapist and caseworker. Her professional and personal understanding of living a life of abuse forms the basis of her Professional Counseling Practice, Healing Heart. Healing Hearts provides abuse counseling and support to both female and male clients.
THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Getting out of the abusive situation is the first step toward healing and moving on in your life, but unfortunately your work doesn’t end there. Once you are physically safe and secure, it is a good idea that you seek professional help for any abuse-related difficulties you may develop. For example, you may have difficulty coping with abuse memories themselves. You may also benefit from assistance in coping with problems that develop because you were abused, such as substance abuse problems, sexual or intimacy issues, anger issues, eating disorders, etc. Each person experiences abuse differently, and is able to cope with abuse in different ways depending on their circumstances. Is it possible to move beyond psychological and verbal abuse?
They say African Men are Aggressive!!!
The other day I overheard a couples' conversation or rather argument. The husband said to the wife as quietly as he could muster under his breath (this was in the mall), "If you talk one more time!'"
Initially I thought he was talking to their kid, come to find out he was talking to his wife!!! No kids in sight!! I could see the fear in her eyes as she cowered under his command. Our eyes met for one brief second and the husband looked at the direction she was glancing at and he saw me looking at them.
I gave him my dirtiest, angriest look!!
He pulled her away and I tried to follow stylishly because I feared for the woman's fate with him.
This makes me wonder, When and how do you interfere in a couples' squabble that you witness??? The whole scene was bordering on Abuse & Domestic Violence!!!
Join us tonight at 8pm Central Time as we put such menace to rest.

Join world-renowned dating coach, Sandy Weiner, as she interviews bestselling author and international TV and radio personality, Patricia Evans about the importance of identifying verbal abuse and choosing healthy partners.
Abuse almost always begins with verbal disempowerment. It can also be ended there with the right tools. Too often, people who are abused as children never learn the confidence and verbal skills to disarm a potential abuser.
Our guest, Dennis Golden, is the founder of IM-Safe, an organization that trains girls and women to move beyond vulnerability and know what to do and say to be safe. He will be sharing tools and ideas to help us to neutralize individuals who are becoming verbally aggressive and deescalate an argument. Through these tools, we can gain the confidence to act out of a sense of power and empowerment instead of fear and confusion.
As a certified self-defense instructor and personal security specialist, Dennis travels nationally and internationally, as a member of the National Speakers Association delivering keynote addresses and workshops on the topic of personal safety for women. Thousands of women have attended 90-minute workshops offered by IM-SAFE.

Tonight's special guest is Arnold Herman from Keansburg, NJ, a father of five, who, along with his wife, has also fostered 32 children over the years, some of them from abusive backgrounds. He is an author of two books with problem solving ideas related to teenagers, and runs "Experience Counts Inc", a non profit organization working to prevent the abuse of adolescents and teenagers by educating parents and children on ways to deal with each other without getting into abusive situations. Arnold writes, "Parenting an adolescent or teenager is without a doubt one of the toughest jobs in the world it is a 24-hour per day, seven day a week task that requires the patience of a saint, the Wisdom of Solomon, and the money of Bill Gates. By the time we get really good at it, our children have grown to adulthood." And he goes on, "The wrong kind of parenting can lead to many problems. In addition to creating a poor relationship between parent and child, it can often lead to various type of abuse. Abuse of adolescents and teenagers is a terrible, but often preventable, problem. More often then not it starts with a simple lack of communication. Then escalates to verbal and physical abuse The parents who perpetrate this type of abuse are often not bad people, but rather parents who have become frustrated in their attempts to communicate with, relate to, and control their children. Sexual abuse may also start innocently, with parents often unaware of the behavior that could lead to this terrible tragedy." Be sure to download his free handbooks: "Bring Back The Woodshed" and "Raising Reasonable Parents."

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 7 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, 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 7: "Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings." Step Seven is about humility (realistic, selfless, and modest) and asking for help to make the changes you are now prepared for. Consider Step Seven as a portal into openness for change. Once you take Step Seven, you step out of the way so your Higher Power can handle the rest of it. The combination of humility and asking provides a survivor with a perspective beyond the traumatic events. Sadly, you can form an inaccurate perspective based on how you internalized the traumatic event(s). Through prayer (humbly asking), you can trust that your prayers are heard, shall be answered in God's time only. ~~ 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. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 8. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: email@example.com

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: Are our Family Courts in Contempt? With judges running roughshod over civil rights and ignoring rule of law, as well as abusing the use of contempt charges and then gagging innocent litigants to cover up their actions, who is REALLY in contempt here? It is getting to a point where being a litigant in Family Court is as risky as being a random target on a firing range. We'll speak with legal expert Barry Goldstein, author of the books 'The Quincy Solution' and 'Domestic Violence Abuse and Child Custody,' with Robin Carr, advocate and author of 'The Motherless Child Project,' and with advocate Lori Callies. The cases and rulings they'll be discussing are so completely outrageous and utterly contemptible, you won't believe they are true. But, tragically, they are. This is one show you won't want to miss. ~~ 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
