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 Amber DeAnn from San Jose, California, a returning NAASCA member and child abuse and PTSD survivor who's now a relationship coach, hypnotherapist, author of ‘Release Your Magical Child,' and filmmaker. "Mine is a slightly different story," she says, "since I approach everything from a more cosmic angle." Amber was abused by both parents. She continues, "The emotional and mental shut down and entrapment in low self esteem, cut off from your power, your personality, your interests, your feelings, and your essence as a human, that is the deepest wound to heal." She explaines, "The emotional and mental shut down and entrapment in low self esteem, cut off from your power, your personality, your interests, your feelings, and your essence as a human, that is the deepest wound to heal." ~~ 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.
