Episode 4 of the V.O.T.E., Victims Overcoming Traumatic Events. Today’s program features four dynamic people who bring awareness, provide insight, and are focused on helping others makes positive life changes.
Jacqueline Williams-Hines, Autism Advocate, Author of “ No Small Victories” children’s book series and founder of “No Small Victories” is focused on bringing Autism awareness to communities by advocating year round. April is Autism Awareness Month; however, this condition is too often misunderstood. We talk about the interactions and behaviors of those who have been diagnosed with Autism in relation to others in their communities. Those with Autism are at-risk members within the community for many reasons, which brings a need for others to be educated about the condition. Jacqueline talks about her own experience as a parent of a son with Autism. There are challenges not only with daily life, but with others who come into the picture not knowing how to respond or interact with her family. We also discuss the challenges of being a caregiver. www.amazon.com/Jacqueline-Williams-Hines/e/B00J8WZYMU
James Nathaniel Miller II, Author of “Beyond Belief” and “The Cody Muscat Story, No Pit So Deep” who is also a Contributing Writer to Communities Digital News goes into detail about his new book. James describes the characters, such as Cody Muscat, and their backgrounds, by creating a picture so vivid, one would assume it was a true story. His use of the palette of traumas many face in real life, draws one in, laying the ground work for a story that provides empathy and inspiration for many who have faced “American war culture related issues, such as human trafficking, PTSD, racism and deep matters of the heart.” www.whoiscodymusket.com
Dr. John Demartini,Human Behavior Specialist, Educator, Business Consultant, and International Published Author, talks about his “Breakthrough Program.” This program is so compelling that he has been teaching it for over 27 years and in 61 countries, transforming the lives of those who view experiences as “ in the way” into whats he calls “on the way.” Dr. Demartini shares why the meanings of thank you and fear are important. He also talks about using questions to breakthrough our fears, tying this with the importance of balance in our expectations. He further discusses setting realistic goals and how balancing both sides of life resolves issues. He offers insight to the 7 fears that can “hypo or hyper” mobilize people. This discussion is truly powerful in that it provides listeners with a way to change by looking internally and gaining insight about ourselves. www.drdemartini.com
