Loss and Grief, the Dougy Center and Grief Watch

Categories:
program:

program date: 
Fri, 01/27/2012
 

Portland Songwriter and performer Lincoln Crockett and his wife Alicia, and Donna Schuurman, Executive Director of The Dougy Center for Grieving Children & Families.

In February 2011, Portland songwriter and performer Lincoln Crockett (www.lincolncrockett.com) and his wife Alicia lost their baby, Joseph Phoenix, shortly after childbirth. As they and their four year old son grieved they were introduced to two priceless resources: Grief Watch (www.griefwatch.com), a resource for dealing with loss, and The Dougy Center (www.dougy.org), an organization dedicated to help grieving children and families. These groups not only provide support to grieving families and children right here in Portland, but from all over the country. Both organizations provide invaluable information, knowledge and experience on how to grieve, how to heal, and how to live again after the kinds of losses and tragedies people fear most.

Lincoln Crockett and his fellow musicians present an evening of music with all proceeds going to benefit The Dougy Center and Grief Watch. The purpose of this benefit concert is twofold: to raise awareness of these fantastic, national-caliber resources right here in Portland and to support their important work. As the Crocketts shared their loss they realized that people around them are grieving, often alone, for lost babies, children, siblings, friends, parents and lives; most of them didn’t know about the help that is available from Grief Watch and The Dougy Center.

Crockett will perform the headlining set in various combinations ranging from solo and duo to the official debut of a full ‘dream band’ – Lincoln Crockett & Enemies. Their music ranges from modern indie folk to bluegrass-inspired virtuosity to a full electric band that plays a high-end fusion of rock and jazz. The evening will be opened by special guest Chris Kokesh performing with Crockett in their popular but rarely heard duo. Grief Watch and The Dougy Center representatives will be on hand to provide information about their services and organizations.

The Old Church is located at 1422 Southwest 11th Avenue in downtown Portland. Tickets are $15. Doors open at 6, show begins at 7.

Thomas Frank, author of PITY THE BILLIONAIRE

program date: 
Fri, 01/20/2012

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher welcomes journalist

Thomas Frank, author of Pity the Billionaire: The Hard-Times Swindle and the Unlikely Comeback of the Right.

Economic catastrophe usually spawns discontent and sweeps the old order out the door. But when Thomas Frank, the author of the New York Times bestseller What's the Matter with Kansas?, set out to look for expressions of American discontent in 2009, all he could find were loud demands that the economic system bear down harshly on the recession’s victims and that society’s traditional winners receive even grander prizes. In PITY THE BILLIONAIRE Frank tells the amazing story of how the American right, which appeared to be dying after the election of 2008, was instead reinvigorated by the arrival of hard times.

She went on a journey to search out different ways of dealing with grief and how they are expressed.

Portland nurse Maxine Fookson travels to the Gaza Strip

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 12/05/2011

On October 18th, 2011, health care workers from Washington and Oregon left for a medical delegation to Gaza, hosted by the Gaza Community Mental Health Program. The purpose of the trip is to learn more about the effects of ongoing war and occupation on the health of the citizens of Gaza. Maxine Fookson, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner from Portland, is the Oregon PSR representative of this group.

Maxine Fookson will join KBOO host Jenka Soderberg at 11 am on Monday December 5th to report back on her trip to Gaza.

Maxine's blog post from October 22nd, begins:

"Today was the first of our health visits. From what I am understanding, health care is administered in a number of ways here. For those who have refugee status by virtue of having been displaced from their homes and land by Israel in either 1948 or 1967 the UN provides education (until 9th grade) and health care, including all vaccines, until age 3 yrs. I learned today that each of the doctors and nurses at the UNRWA Clinics see 100 patients a day. Tomorrow I will go there and see that system. And I am sure there will be plenty to say about that. One thing that is amazing is that Gaza has an immunization rate of >90% for the basic childhood vaccines. That is so unbelievable."

Please visit Maxine's blog to read the rest of this post and more reports from her trip to Gaza.
