SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. In this series of monthly shows we'll specifically take a look at institutional abuse. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: Institutional Child Sexual Abuse: Social Savagery in the Family Courts. All too often children are transferred into the hands of abusers with no due process and no representation. Where is the social consciousness on the issue of CSA (child sexual abuse)? Institutional tolerance of sexual abuse and other forms of abuse of children includes a willingness to discredit children who come forward with claims of sexual abuse and there is active punishment of children who protest abuse. An authoritarian/paternalistic attitude supports abuse. ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues. Every third Tuesday of the month, Jill will present special guests who'll explain the challenges they've experienced while fighting for their own rights, and /or for the rights of their children.
