Jan Haaken talks with Grace Silvia about the Rethinking Psychiatry Film Festival. The organization Rethinking Psychiatry is an activist organization trying to shift away from pathologizing and toward recognizing a variety of ways of being in the world, toward recognizing that psychological suffering is often a result of problems in society or a consequence of trauma, and toward countering the pharmaceutical industry's model of easy cures for the spiritual or medical ailments of modern life. The first night's videos April 2nd explore the Soteria model of being with people going through psychotic breaks with no or minimal medication. 11:41 minutes (5.35 MB)
Larry Bowlden reviews Penelope Lively's not-quite-memoir Dancing Fish and Ammonites, dispatches from Old Age, which, unlike much writing on later life, focuses on what is left rather than what is lost with age. Larry surveys a number of works from Lively's prizewinning literary career, which, like this new volume, has focused on memory and history, writing and reading.
