It's Black History Month and many will be honoring our ancestors who impacted American life. For most this creates a dissonance between being African American, black, and American. It also is a time when confirmation bias is at its most complex in the black church tradition. Confirmation bias is a term most people are not familiar with but operate in everyday. There are things that we believe that no one can dissuade us from believing. Many times we surround ourselves with others who share similar beliefs, ideals, or values. The church is in the business of confirmation bias, but are preachers using it to reinforce negative ideas and practices. How does confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance work in today's preaching and church experience? Join Pastor Neal for this and other great topics.

LUwJC#030 The Hidden Truth Within Cognitive Dissonance
Do you seem to have a mental war taking place in your mind?
Do you want to quiet the conflict playing out in your thoughts?
Are you contributing to the struggle you are experiencing without realizing it?
Today on Lighten Up with Jen and Cheri we are talking about Cognitive Dissonance; what is it?, how did it take over our mind? and what do we do about it?
When we become aware of the discomfort that comes from inconsistent thoughts, beliefs and attitudes we often do everything we can do avoid anything that triggers that specific discomfort. We think we are putting an end to our pain. The problem is we are only avoiding the pain! The Dissonance is still within us, waiting to be unleashed again. What can we do about Cognitive Dissonance? What Truth is hiding within the confusion and frustration it brings?
Join Jen Halterman and Cheri Gillham as they discuss the innocent training we received at a young age that led to our current experiences with Cognitive Dissonance and give you tools to address what it Now!
We will also be discussing how NOT to pass this on to our children, clients and other people in our lives that we offer advice, coaching and support to!

Call in (267)521-0167 9-11 PM Eastern 9/30/2015 to be part of the special series on electroshock is a crime against humanity continues.
Loretta Wilson, Jane Rice, and other shock survivors will discuss cognitive impairment and rehabilitation after shock.
From Loretta Wilson:
In the year 2000 I was informed by the psychiatrist/professor of Michigan State University Dale D`Mello that I would need maintenance ECT and psych meds for the remainder of my life.
The last electroshock was administered by D. D`Mello in/around September of 2000.
In 2007 I began to taper off the drugs as well. I began to lose weight (good thing because I tipped the scales at 261 lbs) and started getting healthier. By 2009 I no longer needed my cane or handicap parking permit.
One drug kept me working for 8 long years. Klonopin had so affected me it took 8 years to finally be set free. My goal to become "drug free" has become a reality this year. I have been drug free for quite some time now. My physical health also improved to the point I am no longer taking medications for anything except a small dose of thyroid hormone.

What is a cognitive disorder after a traumatic brain injury? A cognitive disorder is when your brain does not work correctly after a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A TBI often injures the front part of your brain, which is the part of the brain used for thinking and memory. You may have difficulty doing the same things that you did before the TBI. Symptoms of a cognitive disorder? Your symptoms can get better, stay the same, or get worse over time. They may go away and come back again. You may have any of the following: Mental: Trouble paying attention, Trouble thinking clearly or doing 2 tasks at once, Memory problems, Decreased learning speed and ability Physical: Trouble sleeping or fatigue, Changes in your appetite, Poor balance, Headaches or pain, Problems with your ability to smell, taste, hear, or see Trouble staying warm or cool Emotional: Anxiety, Depression, Impatience Trouble controlling your feelings, actions, and behavior
How are cognitive disorders diagnosed? Your brain heals for many months after a TBI. Healthcare providers may need to test you regularly to monitor your brain function. You may need any of the following: An awareness test may be used to measure how well you move or speak. Tests may also be done to check your memory. A CT scan or MRI may show damage in your brain. You may be given contrast dye to help the damage show up better in the pictures. Tell the healthcare provider if you have ever had an allergic reaction to contrast dye. Do not enter the MRI room with anything metal. Metal can cause serious injury. Tell the healthcare provider if you have any metal in or on your body. How are cognitive disorders treated?
Treatment depends on the severity of your condition. You may need medicines to help decrease your symptoms, such as headaches or pain.
In today's show, we will continue our discussion on cognitive dissonance, but with an emphasis on what you either know, but ignore; or what you don't know, but should.
Today, I have as my guests one or more people that are active in the government in the State of Oregon to "reform" the laws and make them much more of what the American forefathers intended - simple and easy for the average person to understand and use.
Last week we opened the phone lines roughly a half hour into the show and we enjoyed our audience participation, so we plan to do so again, so have your questions and comments ready to participate!
