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 Felisha Johnson from Miami, Florida, who has an incredible story of transformation. She was physically and sexually abused, taken from her family, and placed in the foster care system where she would stay for ten years. She emancipated out at age sixteen, facing multiple hardships. Felisha refused to allow her past to dictate her future, so she pushed through the pain to embark on her healing journey and began to see triumph in her trauma. "I am a survivor," she says. "At seven years old, I was sexually molested by an uncle, physically abused by my stepfather and labeled as a troubled child by my mother." Felisha became quite the advocate and activist. "I created the 'Heal Your Story' Foundation to help trauma survivors and to encourage at-risk youth to transition from their hurtful experiences to living and building a better life." ~~ 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.
