8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Nikki DuBose from Los Angeles, a returning NAASCA family member who was abused as a child and later as a young professional model. Nikki works closely with Matt Sandusky at the 'Peaceful Hearts Foundation,' and will tell us about her new book, 'Washed Away: From Darkness to Light.' In her memoir, Nikki details how being sexually abused as a child led to a seventeen-year battle with serious mental health issues such as eating disorders, depression, self-harm, substance abuse and sexual addictions. She experienced a great deal of success, yet that prosperity came with a high price that often mirrored the sexual abuse from her youth. Among other things, Nikki advocates on her web site for better regulation of the modeling industry. Coming to a place of full healing has not been easy for Nikki, but she says, "I wholeheartedly believe that full recovery is possible. It starts with speaking out and reducing the shame and stigma that is so often attached to mental health issues." She goes on, "Being an advocate is what allows me to wake up every day and feel truly alive. All of that pain that I lived with for so many years is now channeled into making a difference in society. Whatever issues you're passionate about, use your voice and the resources you have; love yourself first and from there you can help to change the world." We're delighted to have Nikki as a card-carrying member of the NAASCA family!

Tonight's special guest is Charmaine (Loverin) Saucedo from Toronto, Ontario, a child abuse survivor, activist and educator. A returning NAASCA family member, Charmaine last appeared with us in May 2013, and is here to let us know what she's been up to since. Among other things, she wants us to know about her current iChoose prevention and intervention skills training for ages 5 - 14 and their in-home or online 2 hour parent workshops about empowering children. Charmaine's own story has been both published & heard around the world. "I experienced sexual, physical and emotional abuse from ages 5 - 15 and became an introvet," Charmaine says. She wouldn't let anyone in and was isolated and suicidal. She lacked self worth and her values were compromised through sexual deviance and choices. "I started on my healing journey first by finding women groups related to child sex abuse in my early 20's, she explains. "It was there when I witnessed a woman twice my age and a younger girl to whom I could relate." It altered her journey because she didn't want to be still terribly impacted 20 years later. "I then next found a psychotherapist who for 3 years helped me through the process of charging one of my offenders and receiving compensation for victims of criminal injury .. all in the early 20's." The words Charmaine lives by are from her child Pastor, "God will always hold your hand when you tell the truth." She proactively continues her self / professional development to enrich and enhance her purpose of empowering ALL human beings towards their own Power of Choice. See her YouTube video here.

Even though she had the support of her doctor and all professionals involved, and the children were thriving beyond all expectations CPS felt that an organic, gluten and dairy free diet was somehow a form of child abuse. These professionals went to bat for her and experienced severe retaliation themselves. CPS even went so far as to illegally kidnap one of these children from another province where they had no jurisdiction. Tonight this mother and these professionals speak out about the extraordinary levels of abuse and corruption that is still ongoing in this case today.

Special guest Ashley Nicole
Wednesday
02/22/2017
8pm EST, 5pm PAC
Tonight's special guest is Ashley Nicole from Cincinnati, Ohio, a child sexual abuse survivor who was assaulted by multiple predators, inside her family and out. After being molested by a male relative at around the age of 4, she was removed from her biological family and placed with a Christian family, a Pastor, his wife and their two biological sons. For 5-6 years, Ashley lived a relatively normal life, although, she never understood why she never saw her biological family again. At 12 her adoptive father, a well known Pastor and community leader, had a heart-to-heart with her. He told her that he loved her very much and would never hurt her in the same manner in which she was hurt before. But shortly he took advantage of that trust and began molesting and sexually abusing her. This went on until Ashley was 19 years old. She did not tell her mother while it was happening, but did disclose it once she moved out permanently. It took Ashley 10 years to be able to openly disclose that her adoptive father had molested her. A week later her adoptive father was found dead. The police said that he died from an accidental self-inflicted gun shot wound to the chest, but Ashley believes it was his choice. Since the death of her father, she's made it her mission to be an advocate for those who struggle with breaking their silence, dealing with the aftermath of that choice and finding hope again. "My experiences with sexual abuse lasted for a very long time, the majority of my life," Ashley says. "This is what fuels my passion." Now Ashley's a dedicated anti-child abuse advocate, and author of the book 'Be Brave.' She says, "No matter how long it has been going on or how deep it may wound you, you can heal, be whole and live a great life."

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Examining Institutional Abuse" with special co-host Dr Jill Jones-Solderman (PhD, MSW, MSHS), a NAASCA family member. In this series of monthly shows we'll specifically take a look at institutional abuse. ~~ TONIGHT'S TOPIC: 'Legal Consultation To Protective Parents Dealing With Sexual Abuse Allegations' ~~ The Foundation for Child Victimes of Family Courts relies on our legal consultants/experts for scholarly review of the cases accepted as clients of the Foundation. Our anonymous guest tonight is a constitutional scholar and legal expert whose many credits include a PhD from Harvard and a JD from Chicago Law. He's a consultant who provides the extra bonus of teaching moments for our staff and our clients so that they thoroughly understand the legal complexities of their case. As always, our focus is on how children are protected in these situations ~~ NAASCA knows "institutional abuse" is rampant, worldwide, and dramatically effects childhood experience of our youth, frequently causing trauma that lasts a lifetime. Many issues of child abuse involve dealing with the courts and law enforcement, foster care, child protection services, CASA and CAC organizations, etc. Jill's experience with her Foundation for Child Victims of Family Courts and her US Whistleblower effort uniquely position her to speak to these issues. Every third Tuesday of the month, Jill will present special guests who'll explain the challenges they've experienced while fighting for their own rights, and /or for the rights of their children.

Special guest Carissa Kreiner

Tonight's special guest is Carissa Kreiner from Cincinnati, Ohio, a survivor of sexual abuse as a child. "I suffered repressed memories from it," she says, "and just last year, with help from a therapist, was able to remember what happened to me." Since then she's finally been able to heal. Carissia grew up in an amazing church-going family. "I was sheltered, safe, loved and protected at all times." Her early life was 'perfect' .. until one day it wasn't. "In the blink of an eye everything changed. Literally overnight my childhood was ripped away from me. The safety, security and trust of our family was destroyed, and the innocence of a 9 year old little girl was gone." Carissa explains, "I used what had happened to me as a crutch." The symptoms included becoming sexually active, acting out and rebelling, quitting church, alcohol use and food. She was  successful in her professional life, but her personal life and her emotional / mental state were in shambles. "Once I turned 33 I began realizing that my issues with not only alcohol and my weight, but also my insomnia, anxiety, anger, depression and lack of trust all stem from what I refer to as 'the unknown'." It was at this point she turned to psychotherapy. It took some doing but eventually there was a breakthrough. "For the first time, I was able to have closure in knowing that I faced my worst fear," Carissa says. "I had been sexually abused, in the home of a long time and trusted church family." That has meant everything. "Coming forward and telling my story is something that has been weighing very heavily on my heart for 6 months now." She goes on,  "I want to be able to help others who are or have suffered from similar situations." We're happy to provide her the opportunity.

Tonight's special guest is Dave Beatty from Austin, Texas, a child abuse survivor who's particularly interested in raising awareness and breaking the silence over Domestic Violence. Dave grew up in a good family, but was at 5 1/2 years old he was sexually assaulted in a bathroom by a custodian at school. "I t was the worst pain I had ever felt in my life," he says. After he was finished the pedophile told him, "I know your parents and if you say anything at all I will kill them." Dave's teacher and his mother both knew something was wrong but assumed the child was coming down with something. "It changed my whole personality," Dave says. "I was scared to speak up anywhere. I felt like I didn't fit in. I felt alone even in a crowded room and to this day I have issues with it." He explains, "I have been silent about it all this time, and the shame and fear of telling anyone has played a big part of who I am today." Dave's struggled in his adult life with relationships, maintaining jobs and with raising his own children. Both he and his spouses experienced Domestic Violence, but Dave has a heart to help others. To do so, he started Riders Against Domestic Violence. Their mission is to organize and establish close community bonds, assist local centers and shelters get the funding they need to help the victims of abuse, and to bring awareness within the central Texas area of the seriousness of domestic abuse, and to encourage breaking the cycle. We're grateful Dave has chosen NAASCA to speak out about his own sexual assault for the first time.

Tonight's special guest is Brenda Plumley of Rome, NY, a returning NAASCA family member who's a survivor of severe child abuse. She credits her painting as being an important ingredient in her recovery. As a survivor and activist, Brenda expresses her recovery through her fine art, describing her work as Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse art. Brenda says she's grown alot since the last time she was with us (in 2013) but that there's still abuse going on in her family. "I realize though that there are symptoms that are life long but I can accept that because I know that I still can overcome," Brenda says. Since her last visit, Brenda confronted her brother. "I am amazed how powerful that was. When my brother moved back into the area I was devastated. I was taken aback by the effect his moving here had on me." She explains, "Now I find myself trying so hard to protect the children in my family, but they are in danger and CPS is not so good at protecting the children they are supposed to help." But perhaps things are looking up. "I finely found a good therapist that is familiar with an aspect of symptoms due to the type of abuse I experienced as a child. It makes it extremely difficult to interact with people. So I tend to seclude and have very few friends." We appreciate Brenda and her advocacy. "I am writing a book now and it will include my art work. I am also planning a support group for survivors in my area. I will be selling my art work for the first time this next summer and the proceeds will go toward helping other survivors." We hope Brenda will continue to engage with her NAASCA family.

Special guest Beth Donahue
Friday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC

Tonight's special guest is Beth Donahue from Port Richey, Florida, a returning NAASCA family member who has not been with us since 2013. Beth is a survivor who was sexually abused by 3 men as a child, but she's been an advocate for children most of her adult life. "I was involved with helping start the organization The Innocence Revolution," Beth reminds us. "I have been to the Massachusetts State house to testify in changing the laws to abolish the statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse," she says, "and also have been to Washington DC to advocate for children by speaking with Representatives and Senators on why it is so important to pass the laws to keep children safe." But Beth's paid a price because of her advocacy, too. "I have been targeted by my family and have lost friends and people I love," she explains, "mainly because I wouldn't waiver on my beliefs that children should be put first and no one has the right to ever abuse them in any way, shape or form." I will be starting The Innocence Revolution up again this year as I feel it was very successful and should not be ignored any longer. We did some great work and need to continue." Beth tells me that she has a lot of information to offer about the targeting that goes on as a victim / survivor / activist in adulthood, and how to expose it. We're delighted to have her back on the show!!

Tonight's special guest is Darlene Pawlik from Manchester, New Hampshire, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) who's been an anti-abuse and recovery advocate for more than 20 years.

"I left school in the seventh grade, but taught myself enough to obtain a GED and attend nursing school. I believe everyone is responsible for their own education. I grew up impoverished and lived on the streets for a few years." She eventually gave her life over to God. "I was ordained for youth ministry in 1998." She's helped a lot of people in her adulthood. As a nurse, Darlene often addresses issues surrounding human dignity in long term care. "I've spoken in many venues," she explains , "including the New Hampshire Legislature, public events, radio and TV interviews, schools, churches, youth groups and other groups around New England and the nation.

Special guests Suzanne Bachner & Bob Brader
Friday
01/27/2017
8pm EST, 5pm PAC


Tonight's special guests are Bob Brader and Suzanne Bachner from New York City, both survivors. Bob's childhood abuse was at the hands of his father, who was a predator to a number of friends and relatives, too. After Bob finally escaped from his father, he found himself lashing out and abusing alcohol. The long process and practice of writing and telling his own story, and working with prevention organizations, have truly transformed Bob. Suzanne's sexual abuse started when she was 11 and attacked by two of her trusted peers. The main perpetrator of her sexual abuse was a close family friend. She has been on a long, slow journey of healing and recovery through therapy and through writing about sexuality, power dynamics, intimacy and sexual abuse. The married couple share a lot more in their lives, too. Bob is an actor and writer and Suzanne is a playwright and director. They're a theatrical team who have partnered on many amazing shows together including two award-winning solo shows (written and performed by Bob Brader) called 'Spitting In The Face Of The Devil' and 'Smoker'. Suzanne's job is as his director/developer. "We have toured them internationally and they have been widely acclaimed and won many awards," Suzanne writes. "We have partnered with several prevention organizations to raise funds and awareness as well." We'll hear about efforts they've supported in the past and their plans for the future on tonight's show. We wish them every success and welcome Bob and Suzanne to the NAASCA family !!

Special guest Karen Mills
Wednesday
01/25/2017
8pm EST, 5pm PAC


Tonight's special guest is Karen Mills from Canyon Country, California, a returning NAASCA family member who we're delighted to be connecting with again. Karen was born in Malaysia to unknown parents, and adopted by a single mother at 2 months old. Her adoptive single mother (Chinese) immediately departed for England and left Karen behind, returning when Karen was 6. Karen was physically, verbally, emotionally and even sexually abused for 11 years by her mother and a cousin. Her mom would regularly threaten to “throw her out to live in the gutter”. The young Karen was a naturally exuberant, energetic and happy child .. but from 6-18 years was kept on a tight leash. In adulthood Karen succeed. She especially excelled in the computing industry, but inside her soul was dying a slow death. She began to explore her natural artistic and creative self, and relocated to Santa Clarita in 2003 where she began teaching adults art. In 2011 Karen stumbled upon the “Survivor to Thriver” manual from The Morris Center's ASCA program. She found the words to explain her childhood and her subsequent life. Karen is no longer reactive but is pro-active and empowered. She has overcome not only childhood abuse but the bias against her as a Chinese adopted girl with no rights, growing up in a fundamental Muslim country. "Because I am a survivor," Karen says, "it used to make me feel better about myself when I was helping others. Now I find in supporting other survivors, I am learning a lot, and it has facilitated a deeper healing within me."

8pm EST, 5pm PAC

Tonight's special guest is Jessa Dillow from Denver, Colorado, who tells us she was  sexually abused by family members as a child. "This sexual abuse soon turned into them making child pornography of my naked body and sex trafficking," she explains. But her traumas didn't end there. "When I was twenty-one years old, I was able to escape, but due to the fact that I was very vulnerable, this new found freedom did not last, and I ended up in a another trafficking situation where through force, fraud, and coercion, my body once again became the property of another pimp." She goes on, "Since my second escape, I have gone through extensive healing and am now working on my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling as a step towards my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology to specialize in trauma recovery." Jessa's story and a video about her experiences can be found in a recent Global Citizen article, part of a series called "Real Women Real Stories," a social project designed to promote awareness of the often unseen hardships women face in different professions and places around the world. The project highlights women who fight their battles and are persistent on achieving what they have set out for. A respected speaker, writer, and mentor, Jessa uses her childhood experience of severe abuse and trafficking to illustrate both the stark realities of sex trafficking, and the truth that healing transformation is possible.

8pm EST, 5pm PAC

Tonight's special guest is Harold Glen Hull from Puyallup, Washington, a survivor of sexual, physical and emotional abuse as a child, and now a motivational speaker at Quest for Survival. Glen was born three months premature but his twin sister passed away three hours after birth. It took months for him to be released from the hospital, and his mother wanted nothing to do with him. "She told everyone that I should have died like her little girl had," Glen says. When he was 5 his father left the family. "Every day I was physically beaten by my mother. She got great pleasure seeing my pain and fear of her." Abuses happened elsewhere, too. When he was 10 he was raped and sexually abused for the first time by a neighbor man." Glen says the man forced him to do things that day that he's never told anyone. The neighbor went on to rape him many times after that night. "I was taken out of my mother's home when I was 12 years old," Glen tells me. He became a ward of the state. "In the boys home we were physically and sexually abused by the clergy and the older boys." As a young man Glen was very violent and put himself in constant danger "trying to get killed." He joined the Army in 1972 and wanted to go to Vietnam, but never faced combat in 30 years of service. In the Army, Glen received counseling. "I was called upon to speak with children and young adults who had been in abusive homes and families," he says. "After sharing my story in the groups and having it written about in the base paper I realized that I could actually help other childhood abuse survivors." Glen is now a writer, speaker and advocate against child abuse. "It is okay to give ourselves time to heal," he explains. "We were victims! Now we are survivors!"

Special guest Charles Greene
Wednesday

8pm EST, 5pm PAC

Tonight's special guest is Charles Greene from Sicklerville, New Jersey, author of the book "My Journey: Life after Addiction - The Lazarus Man." He grew up in a dysfunctional family, filled with anger, rage and violence. His father, a drug addict and alcoholic, was completely unpredictable. Charles describes his angry, violent father as "a man at war with the world and himself." He further explains "Our lives were a paradoxical existence. One moment he was a calm, creative and artistic chef, preparing gourmet meals that fully satisfied our bellies and the next he was raising hell and creating an atmosphere of paralyzing fear with his violent, unpredictable behavior, which consisted of screaming, yelling, cursing and slamming doors. We lived in fear. I feared that one day, he'd kill me." It got worse in his teenage years. "My dad made it a habit of introducing me to his girlfriends. He continually involved me in his adulterous relationships." He goes on, "When I left home for college, and was set free from the prison of my home life, I rebelled spiritually, physically and emotionally." But addictions brought him to his knees, and it was in the rooms of Narcotics Anonymous where Charles tells me God completed the transformation in his life. "Clarity came to me. The purpose for my life became evident," Charles says. " My mind and spirit have been healed from the trauma of my childhood." In recovery, he began to work with others. "Working with individuals with mental illness and substance use disorders has provided me with the opportunity to help those who travelled the road I once travelled."

Special guest Nadia Ackerman

Tonight's special guest is Nadia Ackerman from Brooklyn, New York, a child sexual abuse survivor, songwriter and artist, who's featured in the HealthiNation short documentary film, 'Time to Live Again', which was released in early December, 2016. Originally from Australia, Nadia opens up about the sexual abuse she suffered when she was a child. "I was sexually abused from the age of 6 for three years by the father of a family who moved in across the road from us in Sydney, Australia," Nadia explains. "The only reason it stopped is because they moved." The experiences stayed locked up inside her for quite a while. "I had my first flash back at 21. That's when I realized something horrific had happened to me," she says. Nadia suffered night terrors, PTSD, disassociation, suicidal thoughts and depression. "In my early 30's I had an emotional breakdown that lead me on the path to healing. My greatest tool was ending up with a therapist who specializes in EMDR here in NYC." Nadia was able to heal herself and turn her past into something positive. Her songs and drawings are thematically centered around childhood, and contain whimsical characters and settings. There are, however, some heartbreaking aspects to her art - and that sadness becomes even more apparent once you understand Nadia's past. Hers is a story of hope, told from the perspective of a true survivor. Yes, Nadia's past is painful and sad, but she has been able to spin it into a positive light by channeling her feelings into her art. She hopes to become a mentor to young girls and boys, and to encourage them to speak up about abuse.

Special guest Barbara Myers-Pressley

8pm EST, 5pm PAC

Tonight's special guest is Barbara Myers-Pressley from Copperas Cove, Texas, who was physically, mentally and sexually abused by her biological father. It lasted until her parents divorced. "The abuse would be done in the dark of the night or while my family was away," Barbara says. "He even took me on out of town trips when he was required to go for his employment. I always wondered why my mother never asked any questions, as to why are you taking her with you. I believe she knew I was being abused, but we were all terrified of him and she didn't do anything." That's because her abuser was also a volunteer Sheriff's Deputy. Barbara eventually joined the military in 1989 and never looked back. She has not seen her father since she was 16 years old, and has no desire to have a relationship with him. "I have a strained relationship with my mother," Barbara explains. "During the years she has not come to terms with the fact that I was abused by the man that she loved and married." But things are looking up now, as Barbara finally sought help in the past couple of years. "Three things have helped me with this process. One is having a good support system, my husband, mother, grandmother, and friends. Two was seeking professional help. I was prescribed medications for the anxiety the abuse has only intensified. And lastly I wrote down each and every act that my abuser did to me." Barbara always thought she was the only one but reports that he was eventually convicted for sexually assaulting another child, spent some time in prison and is now a registered sex offender. In 2005 her brother confessed that he was also abused by their father. Barbara writes. "I am finally free, I have told the family secret, his secret."
