Are you outraged by custody battles frequently resulting in decisions that are not in the best interest of the child? We must find ways to change the justice system that discriminates against the "good enough" mother, and awards custody to fathers, who have proven themselves to be unfit, disinterested in the role, and often neglectful/abusive. Join Dr. Annie Abram and Dr. Phyllis Chesler, author of "Mothers on Trial: The Battle for Children and Custody" for the live discussion.
Call in to ask your questions during show time at (646) 716-5232 or email us at email@example.com.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we will recognize it today with Antoinette Sedillo Lopez, a professor on the law faculty at the University of New Mexico.
"In the first major global review of violence against women, a report released in June 2013 found that 30 percent of women reported having been physically or sexually assaulted by a former or current partner. The head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, called it “a global health problem of epidemic proportions,” and other experts said screening for domestic violence should be added to all levels of health care. Among the findings: 40 percent of women killed worldwide were slain by a partner" (NYTimes.com, June 20, 2013).

In recognition of Suicide Prevention Month, Dr. Annie Abram and Dr. Matthew Wintersteen will discuss the disturbingly high rate of suicide, the third cause of death, among young people. What causes a young person to take his/her life? In the rise of cyberbullying a correlation between this phenomena and suicide is often made. Does empirical research validate this “hypothesis’? Dr. Wintersteen will address this concern as well as others.
Matthew B. Wintersteen, Ph.D., is Assistant Professor and Director of Research in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University/Jefferson Medical College. Dr. Wintersteen is the Principal Investigator of a campus suicide prevention project designed to increase awareness about suicide, educate students and faculty, enhance linkages to services, and promote healthy behaviors.

The findings as to what extent bullying can affect a person’s adult functioning are alarming and should be a “call to arms,” to create effective bullying prevention programs in all schools and communities.
