Tonight's special guest is Dr. Jaime Romo from San Diego, California, a long time NAASCA family member and volunteer who can be heard once a month on NAASCA's "Stop Child Abuse Now" talk radio show. Jaime is a 'hyphenate', a survivor-professional (an educator), who Co-Hosts the discussion show every third Thursday of the month. In his youth he experienced CSA (child sexual abuse) by clergy. Jaime advocates for adult survivors and child victims of religious child maltreatment by standing as allies and supporters in conversations and confrontations with religious institutions that perpetuate harm against them. Jaime is a long time active member of the NAASCA family, and leads the the Child-Friendly Faith Project is largely survivor-led and works at local, state, and national levels. We advocate for adult survivors and child victims of religious child maltreatment by standing as allies and supporters in conversations and confrontations with religious institutions that perpetuate harm against them. The hallmark of the CFFP public awareness campaigns work to raise awareness of dangerous religious practices that are pervasive in today’s America. Dr Romo wrote, 'Healing the Sexually Abused Heart: A Workbook for Survivors, Thrivers, and Supporters', an integration of various disciplines that led Jaime to become a certified Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) facilitator. “While it is no secret that I am a survivor of clergy abuse," he explains, "it is the journey of integration, transformation and application that is most telling about my accomplishments and the life that I celebrate.” Please visit: www.jaimeromo.org.

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.
