Short Description: 
What's the state of your Union? A look at the president's address.

What's the State of Your Union?
Wednesday, President Obama will address the nation about the state of the Union. Among those listening to the president's speech will be nearly 210,000 unemployed Oregonians who are part of the 15 million Americans (official figures that don't include those who have just quit looking for work) out of work during this economic crisis. Will the president provide eloquent but empy rhetoric or will he step up and provide long overdue bold leadership to bring relief to those Americans most in need?
 

This week, host Dave Mazza is joined by KBOO talk radio hosts Abe Proctor and Joe Uris for a post-speech analysis that will look at what the president got right, what he got wrong and where he needs to go to bring the change he promised in 2008. Dave, Abe and Joe will also be following up on last week's Supreme Court decision that elimnated decades-old restrictions on corporate political expenditures and what that augers for moving real reform forward in the coming months. Join us in the conversation and let us know the state of your Union.

Schizophrenia recovery through psychotherapy - Catherine Penney, RN

Can people recover completely from schizophrenia through psychotherapy? Or is it a chronic disease with no cure and only medication to control symptoms? Catherine Penney, RN, was considered a chronic case of severe schizophrenia, left on a hospital back ward with no hope. A maverick doctor had faith that Cathy's catatonia and bizarre behavior were meaningful, and offered regular compassionate listening as the treatment. Slowly Cathy recovered, and went on to become a psychiatric nurse and worldwide speaker on mental health alternatives. She is profiled in the book Dante's Cure and featured in the video Take These Broken Wings.

The calamity in Haiti has made one thing abundantly clear -- when a nation has been at the business end of colonialism for centuries, it's that much more difficult to react when disaster strikes. And when, like Haiti, a nation has the temerity to aspire to self-government by people of African descent, the disparity is even more striking.
