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 is Teresa Anderson, from Minnesota, is a professional, a teacher who will talk about the children she's know to have exhibited symptoms of child abuse and trauma. Her job makes her required as mandated reporter of a suspicion of child abuse. Teachers are among those who, because they are in the front line with kids, and are likely to notice, not only physical marks, but changes in a child's behavior or attitude that happen regularly. People in Health care, foster care, law enforcement and other careers who come in direct contact with children until 18 years old are also mandated reporters. We'll find out how she's been 'trained' to recognize abuse and what she's told to do about reporting it. ~~ 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.
