What's behind Oregon's domestic violence murder-suicides?

What's behind Oregon's domestic violence murders-suicides?

 

Fourteen Oregonians died last month in five murder-suicides and one attempted murder suicide. Why this sudden outbreak now of men using guns to murder their spouses, ex-spouses and themselves when domestic violence homicides in Oregon have been on the decline? In 1997, 22 domestic violence homicides took place in Multnomah County alone. In recent years, the state average has been eight murder-suicides a year. Is it the economic climate, a lack of social services, or deep-rooted cultural issues?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Jennifer Warren, LCSW, a counselor with Portland's Men's Resource Center/Women's Counseling Center since 1998. She specializes in domestic violence intervention and recovery, and has worked extensively with men and women arrested for domestic violence. Join us in this discussion about what's behind domestic violence murder-suicides, how the problem is being addressed and what needs to be done to stop the violence.

Tue, 11/24/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am

Surprise -- the insurance industry is going to get everything it wants, and the American people will get only a fraction of what they need.

With President Obama and the Congressional Democrats committed to passing some sort of health care bill -- regardless of whether it's worth a damn -- this is shaping up to be another in a long line of wasted opportunities. Once again, the guys with the gold are making the rules.

November 23 Old Mole Variety Hour

program date: 
Mon, 11/23/2009

Do higher taxes make for fewer jobs -- or more?  Is Congress debating real healthcare reform -- or just another corporate bailout?  Is PTSD a good way to think about how people are  affected by violence?   This show takes on these questions, with host Tom Becker, Old Mole regulars  Bill Resnick and Jan Haaken, and guests Karen Kraut and Rebecca Hyman.  

 

50:40 minutes (28.99 MB)

The Politics of PTSD

program date: 
Mon, 11/23/2009

 Is PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) a useful concept  for thinking about how people deal with a society saturated in violence?   What is gained by using it to treat soldiers suffering from the results of battle mayhem?  Can it be extended  to understand women in abusive relationships, or children growing up in a police state?  Two mental health professionals discuss the history of the concept, its usefulness and its limits -- the Old Mole's  Jan Haaken and  Rebecca Hyman, a student of  trauma  theory.   

19:53 minutes (11.38 MB)
