Good episode? Give it some love!
Tonight's special guest is Amber Jewell, LMSW, from Kansas, a returning NAASCA family member and a survivor of many kinds of child abuse, neglect and hurt. She spent many years in foster care along with being in homes fueled by addictions and mental illness. Amber endured a social stigma that many at-risk kids experience as she fought the years of psychological and emotional abuse. As a young adult, Amber faced the risk of death due to long-term effects of child abuse. It was at that time that Amber really began trampling through a deep, adult process towards her own healing. 'Finding Hope: The 12 Keys to Healing Hardship, Hurt, and Sorrow' is Amber's newly released self-help book, available at www.amberjewell.org. Through it all, Amber has held hope in the path to creating changes, find value in those who made an impact, and change the intergenerational patterns of abuse. Now, Amber is a master level social worker. For 15 years she has worked in a variety of fields relating to foster care, education, mental health, spiritual well-being, and advocacy. She and her husband are also foster and adoptive parents. In addition, Amber is a motivational speaker who speaks with professionals who work with people who come from hard places. She currently works as a school social worker grades K-12. As an educator and an advocate for promoting change for and value within people, Amber works to inspire and motivate others to grasp their own power in the process of hope towards healing. She has a book coming out in December that talks about what lessons have taught her to make it through hard times and gives tools for others to do the same. As Amber says, "Life is tough but SO ARE YOU!"

Stop Child Abuse Now

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.
