Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. The single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Melody J Anderson, LCSW, from Los Angeles and New York City, a child abuse survivor with 28 years in private practice in Westwood and Manhattan. "I grew up in an alcoholic home," Melody reports. "My father suffered from many addictions, including gambling and alcoholism. Sadly, he never sought treatment and died at 55." She goes on, "My mother dealt with her depression from my father's drinking by isolating and neglecting her role as a mother. My older sister and I were left to raise ourselves." Their grandmother rose to the occasion, and ".. gave us the peace to experience that we children were not truly alone in the world." Melody was beset with nightmares, believed she could not trust anyone, and made poor relationship choices. Her confusion has left her with life-long economic anxiety. Fortunately, she found help through Al-Anon and therapy. "Over a quarter of a century ago, I made the decision to pass on my experience, strength and hope to others who knew this pain, by returning to school and becoming a licensed therapist in addiction and trauma." Melody specializes in treating individuals, couples and families coping with addiction, trauma, life changes, mental illness and more. Among other things, she created and was the Coordinator of ?The Intensive-Outpatient Program? and ?Family & Friends Program? at Hazelden New York. She has facilitated groups for the dually-diagnosed in Los Angeles and is the Clinical Director at 'Friendly House', an all-women's, in-patient treatment facility.
