Reflections on the First Month of Talk with Tenney In a burst of energy in the middle of the night of May 16, 2014, I decided to establish a call-in radio talk show. Uncertain of what this really entailed, I embarked on this journey and have become more amazed with each step. One of the main findings of the (de)VOICED, research I conducted through the PhD Program in Environmental Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, was that when people speak out against the biomedical model of psychiatry, they are silenced and retaliated against. I thought, in the middle of the night a month ago, that if there was a public place that people could call-in and discuss their experiences with and perspectives on psychiatry, that they would. I am amazed at the response and thank all of the people who have assisted in making this happen! The first month of the Talk with Tenney show, which airs 9-11 PM Eastern Time has been listened to over 3,000 times, has had dozens of callers, and two specials on electroshock.

Upcoming Broadcasts

This show airing 10 PM will review the report of the Office of the Child Advocate (OCA) (2014) concerning the Shooting at Sandy Hook Middle School which was published by State of Connecticut. This analysis is based largely off of the newly released report on the Sandy Hook School Shootings that was prepared by the State of Connecticut, Office of The Child Advocate (2014). While the report addressed guns, race, privilege, psychiatry, and a host of other intervening variables, and no conclusion of why Adam Lanza did what he did, the authors of the OCA report, referring to Adam Lanza and all he came in contact with, concluded, ?In the end, only he, and he alone, bears responsibility for this monstrous act? (p. 108). People with psychiatric histories have been implicated for the acts of one person and these implications have ranged from being further discriminated against to loss of constitutional rights. Tonight, I will review the report, offer analysis, and open the lines for your thoughts! (267)521-0167 to be part of the program.
