The Psychology of Mass Shootings

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 10/01/2015
After a mass shooting claimed ten lives this morning at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, President Obama adressed the nation with visible frustration, saying, "[Thoughts and prayers do] not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel, and it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted someplace else in America next week or a couple months from now."
His remarks touch on the now-routine nature of such killings, and the widespread frustration with the inevitable political stalemate over the issue of gun control that follows them.
KBOO's news director Jenka Soderberg spoke with Professor Eric Mankowski of Portland State University about the impact of these mass murders on our collective psyche.

GOP Debaters on the Couch

Categories:
program date: 
Mon, 09/21/2015
Psychologist Jan Haaken offers a psychoanalytic interpretation of the Republican debate last week, drawing out the way these candidates mobilize human anxieties over threats, mostly imaginary, and longings for a strong, protective leader. Progressives need to go beyond the tendency to frame these tactics as simply "negative campaigning" and expose the paranoid and pathological ideas that fuel right-wing campaigns--ideas that Democrats also often employ, but less crudely.   9:54 minutes (6.81 MB)
