    in Politics

    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.

    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.

    The Romans A.D. Bible Ushered In Mental Down Syndrome Murders Increased

    in Music

    The American Psychological Association (APA), after a five year study on devoutly religious people, will now consider an unassailable belief in a deity or a higher power to a point where it impairs one's ability to make conscientious decisions about common sense matters, as a mental illness.  The study showed that deeply religious people often suffered from paranoia, anxiety, emotional distress and hallucinations. The study also states that those who had poor health conditions considered God cruel, and those who consider God kind usually did not suffer from mental illnesses. To give an example, Dr. Lillian Andrews, professor of psychology, said that the 'Jehovah Witnesses' will not accept life-saving donor blood under any circumstance and rather choose to die. According to the professor, such people should be declared 'mentally unfit' for decision making and saved using any appropriate method. The APA will persuade law makers to introduce legislation which would allow doctors the right to force life-saving treatment on those who refuse it for spiritual reasons. Dr. Andrews also considers people claiming to possess self-healing powers, ability to communicate directly to a God and power to see spirits, as signs of a mental break and a loss of touch with reality. The new classification of archaic beliefs as mental disorder is treated as a step towards positive direction by the APA.  More details about the study will be made available to the public in APA's upcoming journal that is expected to be released in August.
