Head trauma and emotional trauma. . . this week we take a look. . . with hope and humor.Â An hour-long fund drive special which begins 30 minutes early, at 2 pm PST.
Â We feature:
Healing Homes, a feature-length documentary film directed by Daniel Mackler, chronicles the work of the Family Care Foundation in Gothenburg, Sweden — a program which, in an era of multi-drug cocktails and psychiatric diagnoses-for-life, helps people recover from psychosis without medication or labels.
Tumor Boy is the story of John Healy’s experience of being diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 25.Â More than a decade later, he gives us the wry, short version.Â If you have a head injury, ADD, or long wordy books just aren’t your thing, “Tumor Boy” is totally what you need.
Co-hosted by Shelley Berman, Adrienne Lauby and Sheela Gunn CushmanSHARE
