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's special co host will be Dr. Tina Medina from Kansas City, Kansas, sexually molested as a child by her uncle. In recovery, Tina is now a professional writer specializing in public relations, community/media relations, technical and grant writing. "My book series explains how God is capable of healing the wounded spirit of a sexual abuse victim," she says. Tina has been developing counselor's guides. She began healing with the help of the Pentecostal Church in 1998. "The journey to sexual abuse recovery is all about taking tiny steps to release pent up feelings," Tina explains. For her, the spiritual aspect of inner healing is crucial for her full recovery. "My spirit is the essence of me and it needed to be healed in order for me to be creative and fulfilled. What was once thought to be impossible is now very much attainable." ~~ 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.
