Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) feature trauma informed HOSTs and Co-hosts and respected child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocates. They're all volunteers members of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Founded in 2009, NAASCA.org was originally a grassroots effort. It was launched based on our founder Bill Murray's personal life experienced. Bill wrote, "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping." He continued. "But I have, and for some 35 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects." After years of operating as a grassroots effort, NAASCA became a public charity in 2015 .. a 501(c)3 .. but we receive no grants or outside support, and belong to no other organization. There are no dues or fees. Our MISSION is entirely self-sustaining through the volunteer contributions of our members. The single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. There are now nearly 3000 BlogTalkRadio shows, podcasts in the ever-growing library. Join us five-nights-a-week (Mon to Fri), at 8pm EST (so 7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution-oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. The shows always include panel discussions and call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Penelope Benis from Bellevue, Washington, a returning NAASCA family member and a survivor of childhood domestic violence and sexual abuse. She states, ?I was born into multi-generational abuse, and survived extreme domestic violence within my family of origin. The abuse was physical, mental, emotional and sexual in nature. I lived in a state of dissociation until June of 2016 when my primary care doctor encouraged me to seek therapy. So I began that process three and a half years ago through intensive cognitive therapy and yoga, which enabled me to finally begin the process of healing by both acknowledging what I remembered (the forbidden truth) as well as pushing the (dissociated) memories from my unconscious mind forward.? Today, Penelope is a wife, mother of three teen-aged sons, commercial real estate business professional, yoga instructor and activist. Of the yoga, she explains, ?Yoga, for me, is a hug I give myself every day.? In Seattle, Penelope is involved with Yoga behind bars, which shares yoga and meditation with incarcerated people to promote rehabilitation, personal transformation and a more just society for all. Penelope says that joining the NAASCA group has been tremendously helpful and that she's so appreciative of how everyone has contributed to make NAASCA what it is today. She relates, ?I visit the NAASCA Facebook page daily, and it's truly been the support I needed; a safe place to understand…and feel understood. I'm ready to have the world hear my voice, and tremendously thankful for the opportunity to do so.? She's also told us that someday soon she'll want to find a volunteer opportunity with our NAASCA family!!
