Title: Clergy Sexual Abuse
Author: Roads to Recovery - Greg McHenry
Subtitle: The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
Summary: In early September, the Royal commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was extended for two years. The Royal Commission has been to Geelong, as it has to just about every place in our country, and the extra time is needed to discover the full extent of what was seemingly grotesque culture in some organisations. In the studio today I have Angela Sdrinis, who now has her own business as a Personal Injuries Accredited Specialist and Fr Kevin Dillon the outspoken cleric from St. Mary of the Angels Leonie Sheedy, who is the CEO of Care Leavers Australia Network or CLAN, was unable to be here as she has been called to a private session in Brisbane. But Richard Marles, our Federal Member for Corio, who is also a patron of CLAN, was with Mitch, and he has popped in because Edwina shanghaied him into doing so.

Subtitle: Living with Parkinson's
Summary: When someone who is 21-40 years old receives a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, it is referred to as young onset Parkinson's disease, or early onset Parkinson’s. In general, young people tend to have a smoother course through the illness, due in part to the fact that younger people tend to have fewer general health problems. What is Young Onset Parkinson's Disease? How are those affected supported, both patient and family, through their journeys? VICTOR MCCONVEY RN MACN | Parkinson’s Clinical Nurse Consultant - Health Information Team Manager is with me again today and Louise Zayjac whose Husband Paul is living with Parkinson’s.

Title: Clergy Sexual Abuse - 18.2.2014
Author: Roads to Recovery - Greg McHenry
Subtitle: Barwon CASA & Broken Rites
Summary: The following is a snippet from the Broken Rites website about how church hierarchy moved Predator priest Gerald Ridsdale around. **Countless more victims still remain silent. The total number of Ridsdale victims may amount to hundreds. Many Ridsdale victims still remain silent because they do not want to upset their ***loyal Catholic*** parents. Others feel embarrassed about contacting the detectives. Some of the victims in Ridsdale's later court appearances said that this embarrassment was why they had waited so long. However, the police detectives are very helpful to all victims, and the court procedures ensure that the victims* privacy is protected. In these kinds of criminal cases, victims* names cannot be published.** Ridsdale is scheduled for sentencing on further charges in March. But that doesn’t help the victims and their families. Today I am talking with two people who provide direction and support for those who have come forward, or still wish to do so. • John Blomfield from Barwon Centre Against Sexual Assault - CASA - Level 1, 59-63 Spring St. * Geelong West 3220 * admin@barwoncasa.org *Phone: (03) 5222 4318 * 1800 806 292 (24 hour service) * www.casa.org.au/barwon/ * www.barwonhealth.org.au * • Chris MacIsaac from Broken Rites - www.brokenrites.org.au * Phone: Broken Rites Australia national Hotline : (03) 9457 4999 * Mail: Broken Rites (Australia) Collective Inc.

Title: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome - SIDS

Subtitle: A tribute to River Jak Adam Waddell - 128 days
Summary: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, is still the major cause of death in infants from 1 month to 1 year of age, with most deaths occurring between 2 and 4 months. 1987 in Australia saw a peak in the number of reported SIDS deaths at just fewer than 600, and there has been a steady decline since then, but there is an ideal target of zero that we are aiming for. Why has there been such a decrease? We talk with SIDS researcher, Dr Jhodie Duncan, who is a neuroscientist with the Florey Neurosciences Institute. There are still around 100 SIDS deaths annually, and I chat with Karl & Alex Waddell whose son River Jak Adam died Aged 128 days on the 6th November last year. You can make donations that will be directed to the Florey Institute for SIDS research, through www.riverfoundation.com.au Also - Karl will be running in the Great Ocean Road Marathon on 19th May to raise funds - email - alexandkarl@hotmail.com.au We also talk of Bereavement help at Hope Bereavement Care - 5226 7269 and SIDS & Kids - 24 Hour Line: 1800 240 400
