    in Self Help

    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 We Creating Monsters? Are 'monsters' made or are they born? Is our society's War on Children and Families creating more casualties then we realize? Not only are we creating victims when we rip families apart but we are also creating new offenders who'll go on to create even more victims of their own, or we are creating more victims to be prey. The reality is that nobody goes through the trauma of this system undamaged. The question is, how much damage is really being done, and just exactly what is it costing us as a society? Join us for a very special edition of the "For Our Kids" talk show where we talk with Psychologist Dr. Jim Singer, Eugena Couture, author of 'Adoption Not An Option' and Dave Kyle, an expert on serial killers. He's done extensive research on this subject, including interviews with such notorious killers as Clifford Olson. Hear the real truth behind these killers and what made them who and what they are. The parallels to CPS and Family Court are beyond chilling. Just what kind of a future is our society creating? The facts will astound you. ~~ 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: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 8 - 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 8: "Make a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all." Step Eight is about unfinished business. This step sets the stage for you to relate to yourself and others in a new way. The first order of business here is to define “harm” and “amends”. Harm includes the following: damage, impairment, wound, injury, trauma, and change for the worse, any act of sexual abuse, incest, physical injury, and psychological harm, financial or emotional damage. It is the act of spoiling something, or damaging someone. If you committed harm the way to restore the balance is to make an amends. Amends includes a verbal acknowledgement of what was done, accompanied by a change in behavior. The change in behavior should mirror the opposite of the harm done. ~~ 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 9. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.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: "THE POWER OF GOVERNMENT" - It seems the media is just an echo machine for government policy, and they know they are part of this propaganda campaign. Mainstream media is no longer here to inform society of real issues and keep an eye on the powers that be. Instead, it merely echoes the opinions of the elite. And it is not just journalists who are being censored. Doctors, lawyers, therapists, politicians and professionals and mandated reporters from all areas are faced with severe retaliation for doing their jobs, or speaking up with an unpopular truth. Join as we speak with Investigative Reporter Michael Volpe, author of Prosecutors Gone Wild and The Definitive Dossier of PTSD in Whistleblowers, Journalist Terri LaPointe from MedicalKidnap.com and Advocate Rosie Vincent. They've all had the courage to look deeper into these issues and expose them to the public. We will also be speaking with Dr. Jim Singer, whose life and career were destroyed by the level of retaliation he faced for speaking up in his role as a Mandated Reporter for abused children. You won't want to miss what they have to share with you, and we guarantee you won't hear it on the evening news. ~~ 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: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com

    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.

    Tonight's special guest is Christy Lynn Abram from Washington, a childhood abuse survivor and author of "Little Miss Somebody," a novel based on her experiences. For many years she endured abuse and abandonment at the hands of her mother, a violent alcoholic. Year after year her abuse increased. She writes, "By the age of 12, I was left alone in an abandoned apartment to fend for  myself for weeks." Her mother's actions made her feel worthless, hopeless and isolated in solitude. Christy says, "I became consumed with anger and pain." Although her mother treated her poorly, she followed her mom wherever she went .. to St. Louis, Washington, Florida, Ohio and California. "I was passed around from one relative to another, molested and left to fend for myself." she explains. Her mother "constantly berated me and told me I would never be anybody. At the age of 16, I was emancipated and living alone pregnant with my first child. By the age of 21, I had 3 children and was involved in a abuse marriage." She goes on, "I felt worthless. My sorrow was so deep, I felt like I could never find my way out. I was in and out of mental health treatment centers, each time with a new diagnosis and medication." She struggled with depression for 15 years, survived 3 suicide attempts and eventually continued the cycle of abuse I inherited from her mother. Her road to recovery has taken time. "As a spiritual person, I believe God puts us in the right place so we can discover our purpose through life's lessons," she says. "With all of my being, I believe my experiences have made me a better person." Christy now works as a mental health counselor and mentor to young women who have experiences similar to her own.

    Tonight's special guest is Jasmin Newman from New South Wales, Australia, a survivor and activist who frequently works with male child abuse victims. Jasmin, a mother of two, describes herself as a performance coach. Her organization, Relating To Men, is all about relationships, sex, parenting and a humanist approach to equality. It's a place to provide information and resources to support men as they navigate their path through adult life, both in and out of relationships. She specializes in helping men who are struggling with relationships and intimacy issues in their lives, helping them gain the communication and connection skills necessary to create deeper, more intimate and happier relationships with those they love. Jasmin writes, "One of the things that bought me to men's rights movement was the number of doors closed on me for trying to talk about Male Sexual Assault." She points out that for many years we have been looking at women's issues and there is a wide variety of services and resources out there for them, however men's needs got lost somewhere in the equation. As a result, Jasmin's devoted to helping men who are struggling and feeling lost and alone to move to a place of acceptance and confidence and live a life consistent with their values and beliefs. She believes the power of each man's potential is not only accessible, but readily available when they allow themselves to be true to the man within.
