NAACP Race Controversy and Early Trauma and Chronic Illness
July 8, 2015
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews psychologist Dr. Jay Richards about the psychology around the recent NAACP race controversy. Rachel Dolezal, the former President of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the NAACP, has come under fire for misrepresenting her race after her biological parents told reporters that their daughter Rachel is white. Dr. Richards applies his 30 years of clinical experience to uncover the psychology behind Dolezal’s claims. Kathryn also interviews award-winning journalist Donna Jackson Nakazawa about her book “Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology, and How You Can Heal”. Scientists can now trace how traumas like physical and verbal abuse, neglect, or other adversities can leave permanent physical “fingerprints” on our brains. Nakazawa unveils the link between adverse childhood experiences and chronic adult illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, and more. Nakazawa is featured in TIME Magazine, USA Today Weekend, and Psychology Today.
