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 Melody J Anderson, LCSW, a child abuse survivor and therapist with 28 years in private practice. Melody found help through Al-Anon and therapy. "Over a quarter of a century ago, I made the decision to pass on my experience, strength and hope to others who knew this pain, by returning to school and becoming a licensed therapist in addiction and trauma." She specializes in treating individuals, couples and families coping with addiction, trauma, life changes, mental illness and more. ~~ 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. ~~ Please visit the NAASCA.org web site.
