SORT BY Relevancy
Vast numbers of us find ourselves shamed or ashamed as a direct result of having been psychiatrized. What if this is not an accident? Could it be that toxic shame is a direct intention of psychiatry, not just a byproduct? Is psychiatry using shame in the same way it uses other so-called ‘treatments’ – as a means to silence dissent, marginalize critique and enforce compliance with dominant culture ‘norms.’ Regardless of intentions, what is the implication of an entire profession actively exploiting clinician-patient power differentials so that its members are free to force their will on vulnerable, unconsenting service recipients?
In this episode, we explore our lived experiences with what we are coming to term ‘psychiatric molestation.’ We discuss how the medical model has positioned psychiatry to ‘have its way with us’ in body, mind and spirit. We openly challenge the violation inherent in any posture of ‘clinical intercourse’ which dictates that the psychiatrist is always on top, dominant and entitled to exercise power, while relegating patients to the bottom, submissive, receptacle role. Finally, and most importantly, we ask how we can overcome iatrogenic shame and recover from the damage that psychiatry has done to us on physical, mental, moral, social and existential levels.

Wednesday 2:00 September 2, 2015 Safeguard with Scott Borden and Mike Thompson, with discussions surrounding sexual assault and prevention. This important topic covers a variety of issues that students (men and women) should know. Sexual assault can come in many forms that range from physical contact, bullying, verbal and improper social dating etiquette. It is Chief Borden’s mission to keep every student, faculty/staff and visitor to the University of Rio Grande Campus as safe as possible. His police staff and he want to see every student have a positive and educational experience without the threat of sexual assault or any other illegal activity. Whether a person is male or female, attend Rio Grande or any other College or High School, or if one is in the working world, Scott and Mike give a very good understanding of what each person should know about sexual assault and ways to keep one safe and secure.

We didn't just let corrupt politicians slip past us...we have become hardened to trash TV, violent ISIS tactics, nudity in music videos, and media deceit.
This past weekend 325 #BlackLivesMatter members marched yelling "Pigs in a blanket. Fry 'em like bacon" referring to killing cops. Then a cold- blooded follower of that movement executed a Houston police officer at a gas station by shooting him in the back of the head and then 14 more times in his back.
On the same weekend, there was a march for "Love and All Lives Matter" in Birmingham, Alabama and 30,000 turned out.

This war between the sexes has got to end. Once again, a popular sports figure is accused of rape, and people are taking sides. Men claim that women "lie" about rape to get money, and women insist that men rape women because they believe they can get away with it. Beyond addressing the innocence or guilt of Derrick Rose, Patrick Kane, Bill Cosby, and countless others accused of sexually assaulting women, how do we heal the sick relationship between the sexes? The problem begins with our misguided teachings about sex. Why are men conditioned to be predators of women? How should we be teaching our sons about sex so that they have a healthy respect for women?

Tonight's special guest is Vanessa McNeal from Cedar Falls, Iowa, 22, a child abuse and sexual assault survivor, NAASCA activist and documentary filmmaker. Her goal is to help other people heal and to spread awareness on the issues of child abuse and trauma. NAASCA needs MORE young folks in recovery like Vanessa! Growing up, Vanessa a lot of family violence until she was around five years old. Her father would leave the house voluntarily or because her mom would kick him out because of the fighting. "That left me and my older sister home alone with my mom who was very involved in the party scene," she writes. "I wasn't taken to school regularly so I became far behind in school to the point where I had to be placed in a special class for kids that were behind." Vanessa goes on, "Due to the lack of parental supervision I was placed in compromising positions with compromising people. I was exposed to men and drugs. There was a lot of DHS involvement and police intervention. My needs were not met adequately." Her grandmother eventually gained custody of all four siblings. "I was molested by my 2 older female cousins and by my older sister. There were times I went years without talking to my mother. We eventually began having a consistent healthy relationship around late high school." Vanessa's doing better now. "I struggled most of my life thinking that no one would want or desire me because I thought my own mom did not." She concludes, "I am in a wonderful place in my life right now and I have never been happier."
