Q & A call-in discussion with a survivor-professional, using an OPEN MIKE forum. We'll feature a survivor-professional co-host who'll field topics brought to the episode by you, the listener. ~~ Tonight the special co-host will be Carlotta Taylor from Clinton, Mississippi, a survivor of child abuse by her own family and in foster care. After searching for her purpose for years, she learned it was to share her story and inspire others who may be going through what she endured. In her debut book, 'No More Flinching', Carlotta outlines five key steps to overcoming adversity. A former homicide detective, child protection detective, and former federal officer, with over 15 years law enforcement experience, she knew she had to use her knowledge and wisdom to effect greater change in and around the community. She's the founder of 'Somebody Step In', a non-profit for foster children, teens and young adults. ~~ On these episodes we welcome various co-hosts, survivor-professionals who'll assist in fielding questions and lead a variety of topics suggested by our call-in participants. Their trauma-informed perspectives as survivor-professionals will help them guide discussions on the issues of child abuse, trauma and healthy human sexuality that spring from questions and topics brought to us by our listeners. ~~ Everyone's invited to engage on tonight's show, on the phone or in our show's community chat room. ~~ Please visit the NAASCA.org web site.
