Rethinking psychiatry: a conversation with Robert Whitaker about a more compassionate mental health system

Our treatment of those in emotional distress manifests itself everyday. Too many Oregonians struggling with mental health issues can be found heavily medicated and warehoused. Or, they are turned out onto the streets to become the victims of crime or institutional violence as in the case of James Chasse. This is an issue that goes beyond public policy reform. It is one that calls for a fundamental reexamination of the "broken brain" model of psychiatry upon which those policies are based.

Press**Watch: Marines in the Suez/Polar ice melting/New Depression

Try these links: http://english.aljazeera.net/ http://rawstory.com/ US media, including Time magazine, are reporting that the US has two of its Marine carriers, the USS Kearsarge and USS Ponce, in the Red Sea, ready to attack Egypt. According to the pro-war and sometime disinformation site Debka, the Kearsarge is even closer, in the Great Bitter Lake of the Suez, thus parked within easy helicopter range of Cairo. There are 2,200 Marines in the combined carrier battle groups. More on the strategic significance of the Suez, in a moment. .......................................................................................... Lisa Hajjar of Aljazeera English reports that the new Vice President of Egypt is a favorite of the US and Israel, and, of course, is a torturer.

Movie Moles: Biutiful

program date: 
Mon, 02/07/2011

 Jan and Denise discuss Mexican director  Alejandro González Iñárritu's  "Biutiful," which follows one man's struggle raising his children by himself while working in the Barcelona underground after he discovers he is dying. They explore charges of melodrama and cynicism, but point out the film's emotional complexity and fraught morality that fail to fit into neat hollywood categories. They also bring up the political character of the film and how it exposes viewers to global capitalism by way of the Barcelona underground and the character's own neuroses.
