Tonight's special guest is Dominic Prophete, the Executive Director of Wynona's House in New Jersey, a Child Advocacy Center (CAC) where the mission is to promote justice and healing of child victims of abuse and violence by coordinating investigative, prosecutorial, treatment, and prevention services. The vision of Wynona's House is to create a community where children are safe, families, are strong, and victims become children again, by: 1) reducing the number of times a child is interviewed during the investigation phase to a single interview conducted by a specially trained interviewer in a child-friendly environment, 2) increasing successful prosecution through improved evidence collection, victim-witness advocacy, and partnerships with municipal law enforcement, 3) promoting the research and development of innovative evidence-based behavioral health treatments for children and families, and 4) strengthening the safety net for children through community outreach, education, and prevention efforts. Wynona's House serves the Essex County community and beyond, and the Metro RDTC is one of New Jersey's four state-designated multidisciplinary centers for the evaluation and treatment of abused and neglected children. They primarily serve children and families who reside in Essex County. The team of physicians, social workers and psychologists are experts in the field of child maltreatment, anf they work closely with the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P), the county prosecutor's offices, the Office of the Public Defender Division of the Law Guardian, as well as hospitals, physicians, the courts, community groups and other organizations dedicated to restoring the health and well-being of abused and neglected children throughout New Jersey.

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.
