SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Soderman, a NAASCA family member and Exec. Dir. of the Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: “Institutional Bias - When The Deck Is Stacked” ~~ Tonight's guest found herself childless, homeless and penniless within months of her husband's having left home with their four little children. The crime he committed is called Custodial Interference, when a spouse leaves home and keeps children from contact with their custodial parent. This couple was neither divorced nor legally separated. The institutions that should have protected her include the legal system, where her own lawyer became the greatest liability, the court system, which featured a biased Judge, and Child Protective Services, which proved incompetent and inept. A Corporate Real Estate Broker, Coldwell Banker, facilitating bias and abuse through their sales force, and they almost took her life. But now a resolution is in view. Jill's client is anonymous tonight, as settlement is in progress. ~~ 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 (be sure to check out the new web site) and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues.
