Ep. 1400: The Credibility Complex and Ep. 1401: Teens and Anxiety
October 13, 2021
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews Author, Professor, Attorney Deborah Tuerkheimer JD. We are all shaped by what Deborah Tuerkheimer, calls the credibility complex—forces that make us prone to credibility discounting of accusers, especially society’s most vulnerable and marginalized women and credibility boosting of the accused, most noticeably men of status and privilege. People who routinely mete out these discounts and boosts include police officers, prosecutors, school officials, workplace personnel, friends, roommates, parents and the law itself. Tuerkheimer explores restorative justice’s pros and cons and what it means to be vindicated within and outside the criminal justice system. She offers solutions for dismantling the credibility complex, showing how we can remake law and culture so that trust blame and care are no longer meted out along axes of power. Tuerkheimer, AB Harvard and JD Yale, is a professor at the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and has served for five years as an Assistant District Attorney in the New York County District Attorney’s Office, specializing in domestic violence and child abuse prosecution.Kathryn also interviews Author Erica Komisar LCSW. Adolescence is a notoriously complicated time for kids as well as their parents. In addition, the epidemic of mental health disorders in young people today has made today’s parenting even more challenging. However, parents of adolescents can still have a profound impact on the health and well-being of their children. Parenting expert Erica Komisar examines the struggles many parents face as their children enter adolescence, such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral issues and addiction. Offering compassionate and practical advice, she helps readers learn how to prevent, recognize and address these mental health disorders in their children. Komisar, a clinical social worker, psychoanalyst and parent guidance expert, has been in private practice in NYC for over 30 years and is a frequent contributor to The Wall Street Journal, The NY Daily News,The Huffington Post and The Washington Post.
