Good episode? Give it some love!
Tonight's special guest is Dr. Lori Pitts from Los Angeles, California , whose first abuser was her uncle who was also her god father. This relationship greatly impacted her relationship with the divine. Lori was sexually violated 3'x throughout her life with the first assault starting at the tender age of 5. She was gang raped during high school and was convinced that this was her fault causing feelings of self-doubt. She survived an attempted rape yet again at age 26, during the pregnancy of her youngest child by yet another family member.  The primary feelings Dr. Lori experienced were extreme guilt, shame, and confusion of why this continued to happen to her. She was beginning to believe that this was what she was placed here for, to be sexually violated by men.  As a former clinical counselor, Dr. Lori is an advocate for mental health and has been in counseling dealing with her abuse for 10+ years. She has most recently dealt with forgiveness of her parents and other adults in her life that did not protect her as a child. Further, she has been working through forgiving herself while removing the guilt and shame associated with the assault. Dr. Lori is currently working on a book to be published later this year, that tells her story shedding light on the many areas of her life that were  effected  by being sexually violated. Dr. Lori regularly shares her story during the Women's Wellness Circle that is held the first Saturday of each month as well as on social media platforms. Dr. Lori most recently shared her story of Alchemy during the invitation of the Anu Practice where she was the key note speaker for their Sunday Service.

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.
