Old Mole Variety Hour

 

Joe Clement talks to Jan Haaken about an upcoming screening of her new film Mind Zone: Therapists Behind The Front Lines on July 19 at the NW Film Center. The film explores the work of clinicians that deploy with Army combat stress control units in Afghanistan and how they confront sobering front-line realities that raise disturbing questions about the psychological costs of warfare. Jan and Joe also touch on the larger question of psychology or psychiatry as attempting to adapt people to damaging environments, and Jan comments on the history of clinicians working with the military, going back to WWI and the controversy over diagnoses of shellshock.
