Rob Garfield Interview

program: 
Between Us
program date: 
Wed, 05/20/2015
Psychoanalyst and research Robert Garfield has focused on men and the friendships they form for many years.  In his new book, "Breaking the Male Code", Mr. Garfield explores the rules that keep men spinning in a culture that doesn't always know what it wants them to be.  The author talks with Don Merrill about how TV heroes are no role model, why the men's movement of the 90s hurt men as much as it helped them and how fatherhood is one of the purest ways men can bond.

Electroshock survivor arrested at protest in Clackamas

Evening News

Mon, 05/18/2015
Electroshock survivor and activist Deborah Schwartzkopff was arrested for Criminal Trespass during a protest on Saturday against the controversial practice at the Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center .
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is still widely practiced in the United States, despite public perception that it is largely a thing of the past.
A campaign to ban the procedure in the 1970’s and 80’s had some visibility and achieved at least one outright ban in Berkeley, California in 1982, but since then it has mostly faded from public awareness.
Schwartzkopff underwent numerous series of shock treatments for depression and says she has lasting neurocognitive damage as a result. 7:45 minutes (10.65 MB)
