About the Show

One in Ten podcast is powered/produced by National Children’s Alliance (NCA), and was first launched on May 2, 2019, after our host, NCA CEO and podcast enthusiast Teresa Huizar, couldn’t find any shows that were directly linked to child abuse and the latest science surrounding the issue. Teresa wanted to create a go-to resource for child abuse professionals, giving them access to the brightest minds dealing with the problem of child abuse. You’re invited to listen to our podcast and get the latest science and overall insights on keeping children safe and helping them heal.
