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 AmyAnna Soto from Modesto, California, a survivor of severe childhood trauma and a professional Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery® (SMGI®) guide. "My trauma includes childhood sexual abuse, physical and mental abuse, rape and long-term stalking. Growing up the adults in my life were self-labeled sadists. My world was a place of nightmares and terror, which turned darker when an abuser began to stalk and harass me." She spent the last 20 years reinventing herself, "..using various healing methods including therapy, art, journaling, writing, support groups both online and in-person, dreamwork, art therapy, and SMGI®. I was proactive in my healing reading books and learning all I could. This allowed me to take control of my healing and my life. As a former Certified Nursing Assistant, and sexual assault advocate, I have cared for many people in their most dire moments. All my experiences have led me to discover my inner truth and true passion. I love to help ease the stress and chaos of the aftermath of trauma. As an SMGI® Guide, I can help trauma survivors in a professional role. Until Covid came I ran my own art and craft support group for trauma survivors. I am an artist and published poet in a collaboration poetry book 'Hush No More! Healing Through Words'. I would like to focus mainly on the aftermath/healing of childhood abuse rather than the abuse itself. If you like I can read the two poems featured in the Hush No More Poetry book."
