  • Dr. Stephen Seager, psychiatrist, author, movie producer: Shattered Families

    in Politics Progressive

    Sunday, Sept. 13 at 6pm EST, +Author Stephen Seager, a psychiatrist, best-selling writer, and movie producer, returns to "Human Rights Demand" to discuss the criminalization of mental illness for prison profits. Call-in number (347)857-3293. Speak on air at that number. More than 1.25 million of America's prisoners are mentally ill people. Over 60 percent of inmates in solitary confinement are mentally ill. Half of all police violence incidents involve a person with mental illness. Most victims of prison abuse are mentally ill. Many families suffer Legal Abuse Syndrome (LAS) from trying to extract their vulnerable relatives from the abusive and sometimes murderous prison profiteering system. STOP CRIMINALIZATION OF MENTAL ILLNESS IN THE USA.?

    Dr. Stephen Seager wrote: "I have been a psychiatrist for twenty-five years and have worked extensively with the seriously mentally ill (SMI). Recently, I wrote a book, "Behind the Gates of Gomorrah, a Year with the Criminally Insane." While doing publicity for this book, I came in contact with many families of persons with SMI. Listening to them and recalling my own experience, it quickly became apparent that whatever national mental health system once existed has now totally collapsed."

    Black Geek Movie Talk: Regression

    in Movies

    This week we review "Regression" starring Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson, and David Thewlis.  Within the context of 80's hysteria over satanic cults, a detective (Hawke) and psychiatrist (Thewlis) investigate the rape of a young woman (Watson) in the Midwest.   "Regression" was directed by Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar whose 2001 flick "The Others" was probably underrated by most critics and movie-goers.  Amenábar is also responsible for "Abre Los Ojos", the trippy, existential screenplay Cameron Crowe adapted into "Vanilla Sky".  Tune in today at 1:30 PM PST to find out if this is a must-see or must-skip.

    KING ME- Rekindle old flames, mending relationships and moving on.

    in Radio

    Lost loves. First loves. We all have them but, given the opportunity, what to do when the possibility of reunion comes up? A psychiatrist offers her story, as well as what to look for. It is believed that most men and women carry around, throughout their lives, the image of someone they loved in the past but with whom they did not ultimately join their lives. Someone they continue to wonder about through the years, sometimes almost obsessively -- particularly when things are not going well in their lives -- and sometimes not at all. Still, that figure haunts them and makes them wonder how different their lives may have developed with that other companion. At times they pine and long physically for the presence of this first and sometimes only real love.


    Some of the hottest and most passionate relationships usually take place between couples of teenage years. Nothing is more lustful than two teenagers in love. It also hurts the most when it ends. Many times, if the ending happens for reasons other than the couple is just tired of each other and ready to move on, the love becomes unrequited. Even though these two individuals may move forward in life and even go on to marry other people, they never forget their first love. This love is something that may never leave them no matter how far they travel.


    That’s why it’s very tempting to rekindle an old flame if the opportunity presents itself. You’ve probably heard many tales of how couples that have been separated for years suddenly find themselves back together and realize they still have the same feelings for each other as they did when they were a couple the first time around. Those are very possible and very heartwarming stories. However, it doesn’t always turn out that way. Many times, it’s just the fervent wish to revisit a time in life where the feelings were exciting and the couple was beautiful.

    Living with MST Brain Lewis

    in Military

    Brian enlisted in the Navy in 1997, attended initial training schools, and advanced to the rank of Fire Control Technician Third Class. During his tour on the USS Frank Cable (AS-40), a superior non-commissioned officer sexually assaulted him in August 2000. He was ordered by his command not to pursue a report of this crime with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. After this crime, Brian was misdiagnosed with a Personality Disorder by a Naval psychiatrist and discharged by his command in August 2001. He received a disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs in June 2002 for his post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from the military sexual trauma. Brian’s petition to change his discharge from a general discharge for a personality disorder to a medical retirement for post-traumatic stress disorder was denied by the Board for Correction of Naval Records in August 2004.


    Brian holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Anne Arundel Community College, a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Stevenson University, and a Master of Science in Forensic Studies from Stevenson University in December 2013. His master’s thesis was written on military sexual trauma and nominated for publication in the Stevenson Forensics Journal.


    Brian is currently a second year student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota where he is pursuing a joint JD/MPA program and serves as Treasurer of the Mitchell Hamline Veterans Association.


    He hopes to continue serving by litigating and continuing to advocate for veterans and military sexual trauma survivors.

    Life Lessons - Healing the Hurt and Overcoming Grief

    in Spirituality

     


    We have all faced loss: the death of a friend, relative or pet; the end of a relationship; the loss of a job, dream, or limb. These losses provoke grief, an emotion that is part of a normal, healthy healing process. Restraining grief can be harmful; addressing it heals.


    Many people misunderstand grief. They think crying or showing emotional pain is a sign of weakness. They try to deny grief, but feeling the pain helps the person to cope with the loss and return to normal ways of living.


    Responses to grief involve all aspects of one’s life: emotional, physical, social, spiritual, and mental. Everyone experiences grief differently and to varying degrees.


    On this episode of Healing Spirit and Beyond, Roxie and Carrie offer support and healing ideas based on their own experiences and the experiences of helping others during difficult times.   Some of the ideas they will share are creating rituals, or a memorial, as a special way to honor your loved one and remember the special relationship you had.  They will discuss creating or finding spiritual activities that are meaningful to you—such as praying, meditating, or going to church.  What guidance comes from spirits on the other side?


    Respected author and psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross stated "there is not a typical response to loss, as there is no typical loss. Our grieving is as individual as our lives."  


    Take a deep breath, open your mind and join us for this very special show.
