Tonight we will briefly discuss the recently published anthology Motherhood, Mental Illness and Recovery with one of the book’s contributors, Joanne Nicholson, PhD. As the author of the book’s first chapter, Dr. Nicholson provides a framework for developing a family recovery model for mental health services.
We will review a number of key concepts and processes in the approach to supporting parents with mental illnesses and their families. These include the concepts of: (a) family-centered, (b) strengths-based, (c) family-driven and self-determined, (d) recovery- and resilience-focused, and (e) trauma-informed. Key processes include: (f) engagement and relationship building, (g) empowerment, (h) availability and accessibility, and (i) advocacy.
Dr. Nicholson is a clinical and research psychologist, and Professor of Psychiatry at the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center. She is also Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), where she directed the Child and Family Research Core of the UMMS Center for Mental Health Services Research. Dr. Nicholson has established an active program of research on parents with mental illnesses and their families, in partnership with people in recovery. Her team is developing education and skills training materials for parents, integrating the current knowledge on parents with mental illnesses, and evaluating interventions for families, including the pilot Family Options intervention. In 2006, Dr. Nicholson received the Armin Loeb Award from the U.S. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association for her significant career contribution to research in psychiatric rehabilitation.
We are excited to be back on-air with a great lineup of guests!
This week, Dr. Elvira will speak with Juan Carlos Negrette, Managing Director of Johns Hopkins Medicine International (JHI). JHI provides personalized care for patients traveling to Johns Hopkins from outside the United States, and collaborates with affiliates across the world to improve health care globally.
They will discuss the private sector roles in health interventions and development in general. Specifically, the components of a successful partnership, and how does one go about developing these relationships to meet their own project goals while addressing the concerns about profit driven motives from private companies and cost of services.
Juan Carlos Negrette has over 23 years of extensive international experience in health programs design, implementation and management. Juan Carlos has directed health service delivery programs and commercial healthcare activities, and has structured and developed partnerships of strategic importance with relevant private sector companies and government entities.
Juan Carlos has effectively adopted and adapted commercial tools, techniques and approaches to child and maternal health interventions, and to family planning programs in different parts of the world. Mr. Negrette has also designed and implemented effective strategic marketing and communication interventions in challenging environments in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Mr. Negrette is fluent in Spanish and English; conversational in French and has basic knowledge of Portuguese.

Did you know that...Raw fresh juice not only provides hydration through the water in the vegetables and fruits, but fresh veggie juice also supplies vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytochemicals, which have amazing overall health properties. Unlike dehydrating beverages like coffee, soft drinks, and alcohol, raw fresh juices hydrate you and supply your body with the fluids it needs from daily activities and exercise.

I am so excited for today's show and getting to chat with Bill Baker. He has been driving since 1982 (and actually way before that on their farm!!). Join us and listen to his journey from a terrible back injury to rebuilding his body through strength work and then running....to now being part of the 4-man Truckers Relay team (along with Steven Smith, Jorge & Mike) in the VOL State 500K (that is 314 miles folks in 4 1/2 days - across 5 states!) coming 4/23. How do they do all this training while over the road? Where do they run?
Come and listen & learn. Your vision and goals just may get even bigger!
WHAT IS FETICIDE, WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH WOMEN’S HEALTH CARE, AND DID SOMEONE SET THE CLOCK BACK?
Did you hear about the Indiana woman who had a miscarriage and was sent to jail for 40 years for “feticide?” Or the woman, also in Indiana, who attempted to commit suicide while she was pregnant and spent a year in jail for harming the baby? These aren’t isolated cases, and they aren’t all happening in Indiana. One study actually found hundreds of cases where women were arrested for doing something while pregnant that some official found harmful to their pregnancies.
So what does this mean for women around the country? And what about health care in general? Has health care reform and resultant hospital mergers have an impact on women, on pregnancies, on you?
Join us Saturday as we talk with Rachel Berkson, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington Executive Director. Rachel has been Associate Director of Washington Community Action Network. the Executive Director of the SEIU Washington State Council, where her primary focus was coordinating the union’s joint political and legislative programs, and from 2000 - 2006 was a lead organizer with the Working Families Party, a labor and community-based grassroots political party in New York State. Join us as we hash over what’s happening with pregnant women and politics, women’s health care, and where we are headed when it comes to women’s health in this country.
