Tonight's Special Topic: 'A Retrospective and A Look Ahead' ~~ Tonight will be a review of our talk shows and NAASCA mission .. and a look forward. Among other things, we'll be going to a format that will include an additional 'Special Guest' show each week .. which will give more opportunities for NAASCA family members to tell their stories! ~~ The all-volunteer National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse has a single purpose, to address issues of child abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect .. and we do so from two specific perspectives: (1) educating the public, especially as related to getting society over the taboo of discussing childhood sexual abuse, presenting the facts that show child abuse to be a pandemic, worldwide problem that affects everyone, and (2) offering hope for healing through numerous paths, providing many services to adult survivors of child abuse and information for anyone interested in the many issues involving prevention, intervention and recovery. We seek to build a survivor / activist community, believing that together we can do what we can not do alone. Please visit our HIGHLIGHTS page to see all the things we do! ~~ Join Bill Murray, Carol D. Levine, Tammy Shoffstall, Debra Hunt, Charlie Stecker, Jo Calk and other NAASCA family members on these shows. We invite you to help us discuss the many issues surrounding child abuse and trauma on each of our episodes .. where community call-in participation is always welcome!!
