    MISUSE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SCIENCE IN CUSTODY LITIGATION

    in Current Events

     


    MISUSE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SCIENCE IN CUSTODY LITIGATION


            Do you know that the Leadership Council estimates nearly 60,000 kids a year are forced by the courts to be with an unsafe parent? One article in Family and Intimate Partner Violence Quarterly (spring 2013) reported 175 documented cases of kids killed by their fathers after the court disregarded their mothers’ concerns about safety for children – and that was in just a two year period! So what’s up with the courts? How can this happen?


            One reason is that the courts are using junk science and a skewed idea of “fairness” in determining child custody.  One researcher found that courts often misuse psychological science in custody litigation. And instead of recognizing what can be dangerous to children, family courts see themselves as fair and balanced and those concerned with abuse as ideologues with an ax to grind. The losers?  As usual, it’s the children.


            Joan Meier, attorney and Professor of Clinical Law AT George Washington University is a nationally recognized expert on domestic violence and the law, appellate litigation and clinical law education. She founded several interdisciplinary domestic violence clinical programs, which have been recognized by the US Department of Justice as models for such organizations. She trains attorneys, judges and other court professionals and was awarded the Cahn Award from the National Equal Justice Library.


    Join us as we explore her research and the startling findings about how courts can disregard danger for children and use junk science in determining child custody, often times to the detriment and danger of the children involved.

    Michael Hiltzik: Big Science

    in Politics Progressive

    From Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and Los Angeles Times contributor, Michael Hiltzik, the untold story of how science went “big:” built the bombs that helped win World War II, and became dependent on government and industry—and the forgotten genius who started it all, Ernest Lawrence.

    Since the 1930s, the scale of scientific endeavors has grown exponentially. Machines have become larger, ambitions bolder. The first particle accelerator cost less than one hundred dollars and could be held in its creator’s palm, while its descendant, the Large Hadron Collider, cost ten billion dollars and is seventeen miles in circumference. Scientists have invented nuclear weapons, put a man on the moon, and examined nature at the subatomic scale—all through Big Science, the industrial-scale research paid for by governments and corporations that have driven the great scientific projects of our time.

    The birth of Big Science can be traced to Berkeley, California, nearly nine decades ago, when a resourceful young scientist with a talent for physics and an even greater talent for promotion pondered his new invention and declared, “I’m going to be famous!” Ernest Orlando Lawrence’s cyclotron would revolutionize nuclear physics, but that was only the beginning of its impact. It would change our understanding of the basic building blocks of nature. It would help win World War II. Its influence would be felt in academia and international politics. It was the beginning of Big Science.

    This is the incredible story of how one invention changed the world and of the man principally responsible for it all. Michael Hiltzik tells the riveting full story here for the first time. Audio edited/replaced Jan 17, 2016 11:45am pacific.

    Not "Overtrying": Science meets ancient Chinese Strategy, Dr. Edward Slingerland

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon HumanLab -- The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.


    *"Best Of" replay. On tonight’s show, science gets together with ancient Chinese philosophy, and it likes what it finds. 


    Dr. Edward Slingerland, an internationally renowned Chinese philosophy expert, draws on both cutting-edge science and ancient Chinese strategies to show how our modern Western approach of striving our guts out doesn’t seem to lead to success or happiness.


    In fact, he observes, it seems that getting practiced enough in something that it comes naturally is the way to avoid forcing things in the moment (which is actually counterproductive to succeeding).


    Dr. Slingerland will talk about this, how achieving that sort of effortlessness is the way to personal charisma, and much more on tonight’s show. His book he’ll be discussing is “Trying Not To Try: The Art And Science of Spontaneity.” Join us and see how we can better our work, relationships, and lives -- if we can just get out of our own way.


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please order my new book, the science-based and funny "Good Manners For Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck" -- only $11ish at Amazon. Orders help support my writing and the work I do to put out this show and are much appreciated!

    Science of Deception and its Impact

    in Radio

    The level of duplicity involved in deception is not a science for the inept Understanding the intricacies of process is extremely important in creating a scenario that is both palable and acceptable to the intended target. Process, in of itself,is necessary in setting up a catalyst which is indispensable to charting the correct couirse ensuring a visceral receptivity which is vital if disinformation is to adequately impact the mind(s) of the intended target Eventhough psyops operations are frauded upon in the borders of North Americs, this constitutional assurance has been largely abandoned as increasingly more and more political and/ or military leaders insist dilution of information is both desired and necessary Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State ,best sums it up when he says, " information is vital to popular movements" The implication being less information assures a compliant as well as docile population The impact is not only the problem of ill-informed electorate but the undermining of democracy

    The LESLIE ARNOLD Show: featuring AKATHA, the Ancient Science of Sahaji

    in Spirituality

    Leslie features AKATHA (ae' kuh tuh), the Ancient Science of Sahaji. Sahaji is the original derivation as the one Higher Sanskrit word for the English phrases Soul or Spirit Travel, Out-of-Body Experience (OBE), Soul movement, etc. Practicing Sahaji will gain one the SRAOSHA (Spirit) Mastery level of their life as Leslie has also achieved. Further, in Sahaji, initially before mastery within as Soul, one passes into higher levels of consciousness towards this mastery and beyond. At the point of achieving the fifth dimension inwardly traveling through the first four lower planes, one achieves the first goal of AKATHA. That major goal is Self-Realization, the plane of liberation as Soul, the Light and Sound within one. This Sound Current, sometimes called the "SRAOSHA Life Stream," is very uplifting and heard as a high electrical pitch. This high pitch has one now ecstatically experiencing and realizing perhaps for the first time in the life, the experience as Soul, the essence of man. On the show, Leslie interviews the leader of AKATHA, The Mahaji, the 973rd Living SRAOSHA Master. This foremost evolved human is the highest central master in the universe of the longest unbroken line of Spiritual Masters called The Order of the Vairagi. He teaches the way of AKATHA to the ready Soul who may then take the next step onto the path. The membership is free along with all materials and seminars whilst contributions and donations are not accepted. Without charging shows the motive is pure by the path of AKATHA to give out the purest message of Sahaji. No thought can be then that the Living Master is just out to make a living from his teaching. Therefore, please come and join us in our pure motive for a joyfully inspirational vibrationally uplilfting thirty minute experience. Feel the essence of SRAOSHA perhaps for the first time in this life.
