Kenneth Cole Says, Fashion Is What I Do, It's Not Who I Am
"To thrilled to have Kenneth Cole, who's joining us to have an important conversation about a topic That Kenneth has a really passionate perspective on We managed to speak a few weeks ago and I'm I'm delighted to have you here today and Kenneth, I wanted to ask start asking the question. Are you really doing today? So I guess we're going to speak about that but I'm okay and but what made reference to is probably the single most asked the question every day of the every day of the week, every everywhere in the world and the one most rarely answered. but in this time of Cova did. Doing more reflecting and looking inside out and and try to. Come to terms with all that. So I guess we're going to speak about. Today. Exactly. I wanted to start with. This idea. In the title of today's talk which is. You know mental health as the other pandemic. I mean we've all been really focused of course on this deadly virus that's still spreading all around the world. But perhaps less discussed an equally important topic is a mental health. Pandemic and you know one could argue that actually. This is something that predates Kovic but the current situation has really kind of amplified the importance of this discussion. So why don't we start there talk to us a little bit about your perspectives on why we should be treating this as the other pandemic as it were. So I, I don't know people know might might might resume my experience but I worked I lived in the world of HIV for thirty years and I campaign about HIV AIDS in nineteen, eighty five, and known as talking about it was everybody's minds some few people's lips because of the stigma devastation of Sigmund. If you presumed to be part of this at risk community, you were stigmatized in every regard in in your life and I did that adjoined the board of Amfar I was the chairman of for fourteen. Years. I. Stepped Away from that about a year and a half ago and it became apparent to me that there was this other public health crisis that was so much bigger in. So many ways that I it was oblivious to in in. in the ordinary course in wanted to people today still HIV but it became clear that one in four live with mental condition. And that I argue is not one in four it's four because if it is someone, you love somebody in your family in the community here in the workplace but we're all living with mental health conditions and and we're all struggling with it. Different Ways in how do you? How do you deal with The the Amenity of it and also the practical aspects of it so So that was. That was pre covert and that was the the So I set out down this road and I said I was asked by some friends at me if I would consider working on the stigmatize stigmatization initiative for health and. and it seemed like a lot of people were focusing on this. I knew little about it. I had hardly the credentials not a clinician. I'm not a psychiatrist not mental for some that public health person. But I am a branding person I'm a perceptive perspective person I mean that's a perception person. That's what we do in fashions we do in our business and that's what I did with HIV for years. And and I figured I'll do it but only if I could really build a coalition because. You can't you need to. This needs to be cultural shift is can't just be put out there kind of a new narrative, a new vocabulary new way to talk about mental health that wasn't debilitating. But in fact, empowering I five psychiatrist for definition of depression, I get five different answers and none of them were empowering. So nobody's going to own it. No one's going to. Discuss the circumstances that way. But meanwhile, it's so pervasive and it is so debilitating and. A million people you know two hundred. Thousand people died in the US from from Covid as of now about and and it's getting larger a million people are going to die from suicide this year and this is not something that we even realized how. How how pervasive is concerns are, and and the reality is is a two-thirds people with mental. The health conditions live at exists. So in the shadows and they're not comfortable dressing in, they don't know how to address. It certainly gives me build this coalition. Everybody end we systematically Nami says were in, and then we went to the We went to the suicide prevention line in. crisis text line and Mental Health America and and child mind and jet founded.

"It's a real treat to have Bob Poznanovic with me today because a long time ago before he went to work at Hazel and before he became the vice president of Business Development for this organization, Bob and I met in the Community of recovery in Saint Paul Bobby. It was in about nineteen, eighty, nine, ninety five when you and I would get in the car together and drive to center city I'll certainly a lot has happened in our lives personally and professionally just share with our audience today your personal connection to the Organization Hi William. It was February thirteenth of nineteen ninety five when I had reached my bottom. When I was using cocaine. A really high. Amount. In. CHICAGO. I had just lost my job at the senior executive in a technology company in camp lost my relationships and. Like everybody else and reach that point that I ran out of options and Fortunately found the Hazel and foundation and went to treatment said February and stayed in center city until March and then I went to fellow club where I met you and other members of the community some point in at the end of the march we started volunteering and every Saturday a group of would go to center city and share our strength experience and hope with patients that became a big secret to you know to my recovery is at volunteering and giving back and having some fun. You'll filling that void that drugs and alcohol had that was now being filled. With recovering I think that's one of the one of the promises and one of the gifts is to have really to friendships like yourself and others. Throughout the year. So it's nice to see you and it's nice to be here in the same capacity with you being able to carry, put a face on recovery and carry the message of hope who have ever imagined it right when. You talk about how much you lost but. We're so glad that you've gained so much and we're so glad that you continue to hold onto the expertise that has put you into the role now as vice president of Business Development for this organization at really a critical time, not only in our growth but as we. Address the pandemic of. Corona virus. And you're in charge of a lot of that effort. Can you take us through the process of developing and law launching? He's willing. Betty. Ford's telehealth strategy. Sure so because. My background has always been in technology. I was looking ahead and trying to predict kind of where the industry was going to go is you're looking at technology and healthcare in general I. Think it was pretty clear that technology utilization in behavioral health was really lagging in particularly even more. So in substance use a lot of organizations didn't even have electronic medical records. And you looked at the look at the industry, look at the industry problems, patient problems and care delivery problems back in twenty eighteen. When I HAPPEN TO HAVE A. Demo of some software that one of our pair partners was developing. And it clicked on me that. This technology could be. Used to deliver care differently. So was in two thousand, eighteen we started to talk about how could we use video? In live video between patients, not just in one in one environment which was being done. For telehealth for for years. But how could it be done in a group environment because the problem we are looking to solve Was Access. We're working with a lot of our partners around the country and communities. Academic health centers and other state organizations in healthcare to rural organs. Rural patients is a real challenge. So you know, could it help provide care improve access to roll Marcus would the convenience? Of being able to get care wherever you're at improve engagement. If you live in downtown La Chicago New York you know the catchment area is really small and some big cities because people don't want to fight the traffic after work to get the care. So convenience improve engagement. And the other was would. Stigma. Could we help through overcome some of the stigma. By. Not Making people physically have to show up at a building Kinda put a label on themselves Kenneth come out much more in a sense in Kuwait engaged them earlier by having them. Feel it's safer. As, well as convenient. To start that way. So we it started in two thousand eighteen down the past, and could we accomplished all the goals of of healthcare which is approve access improve outcomes improve. Patient satisfaction and lower costs.

"Was GonNA crash out on your couch. They showed up. So. Maybe if half the forces gone. It'll take ten times for the Cup finally to my house. Yeah, I mean we gotta look at. This thing is insane to me. Yeah. Unnecessary conversation, though because obviously it's not firing on all cylinders. I mean there are elements of what works like when somebody comes to your house breaks in high on heroin and sleeping on your couch. Removing that individual from the House, I mean obviously that that works that process that system. Works, you know, do they rehabilitate? A question what happens? Next right and so I think that's part of what we're looking at as well is. It's not just okay. We see in in by the way we're not going to see a lot of this matter of everyone to see a lot less in terms of what goes on because they just pulled down live CD. And Cops, those two shows they just. They literally yanked off the air. You're done not gonna see it anymore. So speaking of what you don't see though what happens after they come in and get that guy out of your car off your couch. Do they help him at all? Because it doesn't help to just throw this guy in jail and say hey, breaking and entering. You did something wrong. How do we again address the the disease itself as opposed to to the symptoms of that disease right, and and and that's that is I think what a lot of this conversation is leading towards and Ken Kenniston that conversation as well in terms of the culture it. Oh, it you just. You can't always result resort to to violence as the solution, and even if we just look at this in a vacuum and just look at the case of. George Florida as an example, he is that really a violent crime of trying to bite like if if he really needs something whatever it is that he was trying to buy with a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. If. His life is at that stage. Where he's willing to do whatever it takes to be able to buy whatever he needs to buy with a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. Should never have gotten to that. Point is is what I'm saying. So from a culture perspective can. You know if we look at this I. Mean obviously if somebody is standing there with a gun. There are certain actions that need to be taken for sure. But standing there having tried to pass a fake twenty dollar bill. To buy something that obviously. He felt he needed in that moment. WHO's willing to take that risk? Kennedy, we just look at this from a culture perspective. Shouldn't. They treated that differently than if he was standing there with a gun or a knife or was trying to actually harm someone. All certainly I have not seen every video involved Certainly, if it's just a case of somebody, even deliberately passing a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. Everybody in law enforcement. That I've talked to you. The of force against George Floyd was completely incorrect which speaks back to the culture, but let's even go one step further. Let's that it's true that he resisted arrest. Let's say that it's true that he was on some drugs. Or what have you you? The police officer does have the right to defend himself and defend the civilians around him. However he's down. He's handcuffed. They problem that I saw. Is the fact that this is what I saw I saw having worked with law enforcement for sixteen years in one way, shape or form. I am not a police officer myself. was I saw an officer and Derek Chavez. That should not have been on the streets. And I'll and I'll go into a little bit more detail on that in that year. He civilians told him you know look he's. He's not breathing. He's calling out for help off of 'EM. Ace East L., then he's fine at even one of his fellow officers. A rookie said you know. Maybe we should turn him. On his on his, maybe we should do something a snow. We stay in this position until the EMT's come or something to that to that effect your when I saw is a police officer that did not belong on the street so going back to culture. If we had a culture where one year rookie cops could see you, this just isn't right. You know I swore an oath just like this guy did and what we're doing is is an excessive use of force for what is. What is happening here? They should have been empowered. I think to one of the things that I. don't hear enough of I. Hear it in a lot of private circles. Because people frankly are so afraid to speak out about this subject is that there is an issue with your cops having mental issues, they they get they get ptsd from cumulative trauma some of them and I'm not making an excuse in any way shape or form for what Derek Shelvin did, but if we had a culture and a system where it was open in that. Hey, you know there's something wrong with this guy. Not only. Should he not be on the strategic? Be a training officer. He shouldn't be teaching other cops what to do. We should have a situation. Where were those officers? Maybe on a yearly basis, go through some type of mental evaluation Yeah, maybe that we need to have instead of defunding, we need funding for maybe some types of certification programs like we do for nurses and other professions. Maybe we should raise this a little bit where you know. We identify the problem. Police officer before something happens like what unfortunately happened at George Floyd. Yeah! Yeah so rich anything that you want to add to this because you've been. Gosh, yearly halen meaning it's. Part of why it's hard for me right now is. It's the combination of the place we play in the world of podcasting and all this. Soundbites are awesome and they're. They're so important. But part of I think the problem that's going on, is we? Don't sit long enough and talk long enough and go deep enough in a conversation. To find out real solutions, and so people look for soundbites, 'cause left or right like it's I. Mean you teach us in the podcast starts with attention, and if you can say something or do something to gets attention. That's step one. And so you know one I. Want to go back to two can comment. On I don't think it has to be mutually exclusive I. Think we can do all these things and being you know Mr Reinvention Steve like. I think this is a great opportunity to. A time in the world to reinvent and I think we'll look back at twenty twenty and we will have some good hindsight. Right like I. I think there's a great opportunity for us. I think the hardest part is it's GonNa? Be a lot of hard conversations and there's GonNa. We need to be willing to sit at that table through a.

"So can. Let's throw you in the mix here just because. Of. Timing, yeah? We. Go back to talking about bees. possums in my house. Probably be a lot. Safer to talk. About. A. So can't let me. Let me, let me I give you an opportunity to introduce yourself I know obviously get your own consulting thing going on right now and I'm saying that only because I can see you on video for those listening Give us a little bit of understanding in terms of what it is it you're. You're doing now with Bater training and consulting. because. Again Really Apropos for the conversation that we're having today, please. Sure sure I started baiter training and consulting almost twenty years ago. Actually on nine eleven. Genetically? So that's kind of an interesting story but what we do is we create environments where employees actually want to come to work, and customers want to keep coming back and I do that with my be Placebo, assess formula Richie kind of alluded to it at stands for brand, culture and Strategy and then through my work could better training and consulting through work with a couple of my clients, two thousand and four I started the Police Officers Credit Union Association so I have kind of an interesting perspective both from a business side and a law enforcement side. Probably, a couple of other angles, what's going on right now? Yeah? Yeah. Ensue so to that end. Again, there's a couple of different ways that we can go here, but but to that end give us give us your perspective from from a law enforcement side because. It seems like. This is this is one of those turning point. Type moments in I. DO BELIEVE YOU'RE GONNA see I don't really like the term defunding. I do prefer the tear the term reallocation. Because I when you look at? The, there's always two different ways to approach. Any type of situation you can approach things from a defensive situation in terms of gearing up for for worst case, or you can look at things from an empowerment situation, which is to treat the actual. Disease shall we say as opposed to the symptoms that that then show up, and so that reeducation means going into some of these neighborhoods and providing more education, providing more training, helping to empower people who have not had the ability over the years to really empower themselves based on the system that quite frankly has been suit against them in so many different ways that to me is a really smart investment. You're investing in your people, so we will see I. believe a quite a significant shift in terms of the allocation of those funds, and some quite a substantial amount moving out of. Enforcement or defense, or whatever it is that you want to call it in into education and empowerment. How how do you think that's going to impact in Mary? Obviously A- you know. Kick it over to you as well, but you know Ken specifically at this moment. How do you think that's going to impact a lot of the people that you work with and have developed relationships over the years with over the years? Yeah Yeah. I could probably go on for half an hour on that, but I'm GonNa try to makers shortest possible. The the phrase that I've been using for at least the last week to ten days. Is that being pro-police? Pro Change and pro pro-peace are not mutually exclusive We can want all three of those things, and we can achieve all three all three of those things. If for the love of God. We could just get past some of this anger. And I understand the anger. Let me say point blank, black and white. What happened to George? Floyd was wrong. Period! And every single good cop, every retired active, every single good intelligent person that I've talked to involved in law enforcement will agree with that one hundred percent. What happened to George Floyd was wrong. What Derek Shove and did was wrong. So let's get that out of the way now if we can get past this anger. On both sides. Frankly I've seen a lot of anger. Your some of it justified. Some of it maybe not to marry his point I have no problem with people that WanNa. Protest I have a big problem with somebody that wants to break the law and loot Fake somewhere in the Bible, there was that thou shalt not steal thing. By. Yeah Yeah you know whether you're Catholic or Jewish or Muslim or whatever. Isaac that was was in there. But I think we have a real opportunity right now. If, we can get past this anger where I. I don't agree with the funding either but I think that we can make some real positive change. I want communities of all levels than ball callers to be safe. I also am one hundred percent behind any new programs that are going to increase the probability of a police officer, going home safely to their families and Tuck it in their kids. I'm all for that, too, so yeah I think you to Kinda. Circle this back around and then close it up for at least that question you know from a brand culture strategy standpoint. You're the problem that we had in the Minneapolis police. Department was a culture problem. You know if we had a culture where let's say those two rookie cops were empowered to stand up. And that was the culture in that department. Maybe we would have had a different result I. think that the opportunity right now is not to just blindly change programs, or to take money away, but to really look at the entire system. Maybe look at Camden New Jersey at what they're doing with community policing your maybe look at some other examples and see. How can we change the culture and make this makes not just change it, but make it something better than it was before it, not only for citizens, but also for for law enforcement. Yeah yeah point. We'll take it Mary anything to add to that. I'm not.
"kenneth i" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Let's talk to a young man who just had one of the biggest moments of his life. Already Kenneth Murray linebacker out of Oklahoma first round pick for the chargers the traded up to get him Kenneth. Thanks for taking the time. Congratulations tell me about this process though. Like how strange was the process for you? Considering what we're dealing with in the world right now I mean it's it's out here unique situation so You know it's been definitely a unique process so far but definitely you know making almost of trying to go out there and put my best foot forward when you when you were sitting there watching the draft and the chargers they obviously traded to go get you they they they like to and they want. They made a Trade Commission. They could land you. What did you have a sense that they that they were interested in? You like that did. Did they talk to you in the process or does your age? No Yeah I mean to me on this you know I. It completely caught me by surprise how I talked to them at the combine it. They went on my former meeting. So obviously I knew some type of interest there and he'll felt like we you know we connect really well in the meeting and In other than that really was was it to be honest. Um You know go to the recent weeks leading up to the draft I've seen them in my day before pretty much. Everything got shut down. I seen one of their scouts and he just asked me if I was healthy. 'cause I had a little hamstring Hickel a bit the Columbine and You know you know after that. They called me probably about a week later seeing if I was going to do type of Workout virtually but I mean literally other than those those conversations after the meeting at the combat we had spoken so You know really Kinda call. You surprised I was sitting there on the couch and I get the call and You know it was. It was a cold from from Indianapolis. I was confused and I just answered it. You know then you know to hear the charges you know say they will go to draft the next big trade with New England was just you know just have emotions took over. Oh that's funny. That's he worked for the colts and he worked for the bills actually before that too. So that's what happens. You get these guys. They worked in different places and they don't change their cell phone number. So I see that catches you off guard who was with you during the draft process. While you're waiting. Oh that's Jeff I have my my parents and my girlfriend and my sister and my longtime trainer timber and we just they're just taking it all in Finally got the call. And when you're celebration begun so I read somewhere that you actually practiced what your reaction was going to be when you were drafted. I mean it's pretty out there to you know being a first round. Pick with something that you know. I changed that for a long time. Go to that I wrote down and said I was going to do in high school. Something tweet our high school You know yeah I actually you know would acted out with my family and my girlfriend in college. I would always tell her. You know like you know when I get a chance to walk state this was going to look like and you know it was definitely surreal moment. Able to get the call and be happy. So how do ya where'd you? Where would you practice this like a house on up on stage like what L. L. Realistic? Tommy would be at the house. Oh Okay College College. It would be like in my little small dorm room to be honest. You'll be so funny. She would be cracking me being like those small dorm room around like I was walking across the state so accused him of mind. Definitely you know a best to be able to compensate. Kenneth Murray newest member of the chargers first round pick. They traded up to get him out of Oklahoma. How did you do though like you? Were practising all these years to do it. How did the finished product compared to how you practiced it? If I can compare it to the I went into the situation on it I I wouldn't. I didn't have any idea where we feel like actually be jacket in the first round and I think that that's just hold true. I'll just get the call you know doing that time. I'm not really a nervous person. I really don't don't get nervous about pretty much anything I can. I just remember just going tonight. You know just. I was like the first time I ever was sitting down and I was actually like sweating it like I'll just is ready to give the call and finally it came on. It definitely wasn't a allow night so you you're known for a lot of different things athleticism and preparation studying. What what do you think you'll be known for With the chargers when you when you when you finally get out on the field here her dominant force in the middle A guy in the middle of this branch it has a presence about You know you just feel the passion on the love of the game and I think that's exactly what you're GonNa see when I when I get all the field. You know what you have before you guys all about preparation in about just over the game. So I definitely thing you know when you when you when you see me on a feel out. Different other charges. He's just not just a presence there in the middle twenty-third pick in the first round charges. Trained up to get him. Kenneth Murray joining us here on the Sodano show George Sodano Ramona. Shelburne with you here on. Espn seven ten here in La. So I want to get back to the draft thing one more for one more thing. Clearly your teammate very famously was became an Internet meme CD LAMB. You give him any grief you said attacks you have some fun at his expense or no. I seen it I think. I think it's pretty crazy. Actually it really broke away to their book just seemed like such innocent situation but we definitely talk. You know after after the job and have just sent congratulations. I know from me and him. You know this is something that we bosa wanting to be doing. Our players buffets around patient on being able to accommodate us so not just having that we moved grammar tichy measuring so. We're all excited about the new stadium. That's going to be opening up this year. The new uniform bowl teams are taken into the into the stadium. How you feel about this charter uniforms. There's there's a lot of people feel about those might be some of the best in the NFL. Now I know they sure I definitely see myself looking real real good and also I can't wait to put it on put on US colors and daring make. Let's Kenneth how does it feel though for you like just I mean? Oklahoma obviously is one of the premier programs in the country. Anyway but the fact that you are so good at what you do. But how much does it help to have prepared against the last couple of seasons against professional quarterbacks guys who you practice with each and every day where? Jalen now going to the eagles you know cuyler Baker. All these guys that you were able to practice with that played that position in the NFL or we'll play that position in the NFL. How much of a benefit was that used been? You know they're saying that you know iron sharpens iron. Is this just through especially when it comes to planning a place? I Oklahoma Is it so many great players you know every year? It's going to be always some somebody coming up with is be always you know. Some good player Players that are there so I mean it just makes the game so much fun and it just makes a practice where where you truly do get better because it's just such a great competition so say I wouldn't be a plan I am today without Each one of those guys you know our battles that we had back and forth in practice you know we we definitely go back and forth and batteries brakes so I I read That you grew up in sort of a different type of family than other than other people How how does that shape you? How's the family that you grow up and you had you have two biological brothers and sisters and then three adopted of brothers and sisters. How how's that changed you? Has IT affected? You think this is truly just taught me how to be self to be honest And I think what it really know the biggest lesson I learned from that assist. You know what your gratitude is. What what it's like to to be not true and truly grateful for something you know you know for me you know. It's it's something that I see every day. You know me at home. It's my brother can't walk and can't talk and no it's kind of for me is kind of You know it's a it's a different point of view because I was able to see them go through different stages of their lives and you know see them go from you know. Nabi never walked to walk in. And then you know. Some type of event a medically cons about it now. They're not able to walk again. And you know just seeing you know. Run-up me working me playing sports and seeing you know the type of enthusiasm and joy that put on their face on and to see them not being able to partake because of this situation is this just makes you just degrade referred just a small spin. It would've been a talk on just being able to simply tell my mom and dad. I feel sick something like that that you know some people you know you know. My brothers and sisters don't have the liberty to do And so this is just really being very everything. Kenneth Murray Twenty third pick overall in the draft first rounder of your La chargers. Thank you so much for the time. We're looking forward to talking to you more often and hope you are safe and healthy and you and yours are safe and healthy. And we'll talk to you soon. Man thanks again you gotta take care of their. Is Kenneth. Murray with us here. What a great kid..
"kenneth i" Discussed on The Addicted Mind Podcast
"Religious elements in the twelve step program and for someone who doesn't have that belief system. Yeah that would be like yeah. That's not really fair. I really right I personally. Don't believe in Court ordering people into treatment into any sort of treatment. I mean if you drive in your automobile and you kill somebody whether it really doesn't matter if you're drunk horse you are responsible for what you did and there should be a punishment for that though. It should not be something that people get treated for. Yeah but if you're knowingly incapacitated you know you're drunk and you kill somebody. I think that's different from driving and you're not drunk and you're doing your best to be a good driver and you hit somebody and kill somebody. I think there is a big difference there. No I don't really if you're going to get drunk. You SHOULD PLANET AHEAD OF TIME. I would agree with that. You should hide your car keys. you should be responsible or you should give them to someone or you should lock them in a time. Lock safe until you know. You'RE GONNA be sobered up. You are responsible yes. Getting wrong is a conscious act. Yes and you should prepare yourself ahead of time so that you don't endanger other people and I think that people are responsible for their actions when they are drunk. They should have planned veins ahead of time. Definitely yeah and I think that's where what you're saying is like a harm reduction comes in. It's like look if you're going to drink let's do it responsibly. Let's do it in a way that is going to be as harmful to yourself. Whatever that fits for you or wherever that line is and harmful to anybody else. That is actually a huge part of our program. One of the elements is about making a plan right and we want people to make a plan for their drinking especially if they've had problems in the past getting in trouble doing things that are unsafe. We want people to make a safety plan. Yeah definitely I think that is incredibly helpful for people and this can be a place for people who you know. Maybe they're not ready for absence or that's not going to be a fit for them which is fine but this gives them a place to look at their behaviors make choices discuss it in a non shaming environment. Yeah exactly and I've often said you know we are the only group where you can come in and say. I like to get drunk every day and I used to drink and drive but still want to get drunk every day but I don't WanNa drive anymore when I'm drunk and we will say. Wow that's really great right and support you in that decision right and help you. You make that improvement in your life. Yes exactly so. That's one of the things that makes our group. Quite unique from other programs like moderation based programs which kind of say you know stick within these moderate drinking limits and if you exceed them what you should leave here and go to an absence based program which you know. That's one of the problems I had when I was working with moderation management. And by you know there are a lot of people coming in that. We're making a positive changes. But they didn't want to stop there. Intoxication Days Right. Actually I didn't want to great back to where we started with me sharing so currently I like to drink one day per week And abstain the other six. And when I drink I will buy if of whiskey and seven hundred fifty milliliters and I will take it home. Watch the movies and drink at all and when it's gone to sleep right it's very safe. It's not moderate drinking by any means definitely Day of heavy drinking per week. But I'm good with that. That fits me. Yeah and it sounds like that's where you're at and that's where you want to be and I'm definitely more open to people making decisions about how they are. Life should be for themselves and that I am not in anybody else so for me. I can't say what's GonNa be good for you or not for you. Here's what we know. Here's what we know about drinking. Here's the you know. Make the decision for yourself. Inform yourself and then that's up to you and well just on this topic. I used to drink four times that much. Now it's you know. I've cut down just a fraction and I've been on this plan for the past twenty years so it's very stable for me to get. It feels right. It feels good. And you're comfortable with that and I think that's an important message that people have to here. Is that you know everybody has to make that decision for themselves. Where THEY WANNA be in their life exactly and what works for. One person may not work for another person and worked for. That person may not work for that person. And that's okay and that there are options out there to choose from to live your best life on the same topic. If you come to our group and be drinking one glass of wine a week and say well I wanNA quit completely because I don't want alcohol my life. It's all right and we'll also say great. We'll support you in that. That's your choice right. Yeah and I think also an element in this to that I think is very important to know is that I think when people feel that autonomy to be able to make their own decisions that sometimes they'll come to their own conclusion about improving their life in a way that benefits them right and when we try and force people to do these things. I think we have a much higher failure rate. Yeah I would agree. I mean some people do like a lot of structure right. Yeah some people like a very structured program that just tells them this is what you do here the twelve steps. You do them in this order. Step one that saw you start some people like a structured program like that and that's fine. It's certainly available to be blue wanted. Our program is very unstructured. It's very and our kick. I think a lot of our members basically are people who don't want to be told what to do. They're the people what to do. They're going to do the exact opposite right. Yeah no totally totally so tell me a little more about how people find this program. How did they get there and well? We have a website. It's Hams that C. C. and Hams is L. H. A. M. as in Mary. S kind of Hams. You Eat And it stands for harm reduction abstinence and moderation support as we wanted to make it clear that we support whatever you. WanNa do so Hamsun. Cc's website a lot of people get to program through the website. If very popular our book is pretty highly ranked on Amazon. I was just checking yesterday. We've sold about twenty two thousand copies. Wow so a lot of people are really interested in this Yeah Yeah in the past ten years. It was published ten years ago. Twenty two thousand copies in ten years. So it's not bad at pretty good for self published book. Yeah yeah definitely so one more question if someone out there is listening to this. And maybe they're thinking about changing their drinking habit or some other habit that they don't like in their life or maybe causing them distress. What would you wanNA tell him? Well there's a lot of ways to approach this. If you like to participate in groups online we have online groups. We have a facebook group very popular. We also have a forum. That's quite popular. You can get to those to our website so one thing you can do is participate in the group. Some people don't want to participate in groups and that's fine too. You have to participate in a group the change your habits right so you can just get our book and just read the Book and do it on your own if you ought to. Actually there's enough information on the website that you can do it on your own for free out. All the central worksheets are all on the website. And you can do the whole thing for free. The book gives you more depth and detail. And it's how we For the program and stay in Business. Duale sell it right sure. Yeah so people can go there and find your information and get some of the stuff and if this is something that fits for them that they can look into and investigate it further Right is there anything else you wanna add or you think should be said or well. We have a couple of models but the one that's very popular is better is better better better. I like it. Yep We stole it from a software engineers and that's where it originated. Apparently okay but it works better as better and you know. I think that you know any way in which people can get help and improve. Their lives is worth looking at and understanding more and definitely. I think this program can speak to a lot of people who need this kind of help that fits for them. Yes exactly so. This is an option for the people that were good fit for. I think we've been very well. That's what we're all about. Well thank you Kenneth for coming onto the victim.

"Click on the TAB on the side that says share your story of Hope Record a ninety second audio clip and hopefully I will feature that on the Addictive Mind. Podcast so that other people can hear that recovery is possible that people do get better and that we can all change and be our best selves all right onto this episode. Today we have Kenneth Anderson from Hams and the harm reduction network. So He's GonNa talk about harm reduction what that means how. That's different from other traditional forms of Treatment. Like twelve step abstinence models and how the harm reduction model can help people who maybe they don't want to completely stop drinking or completely be abstinence but want to reduce their drinking or want to change it in some way and one of the main things that he talked about. Is I think meeting somebody where they're at and allowing them to make the decision on how they want to live their life and what fits for them and letting them do that and creating a welcoming environment for that so without further ado. Let's start this episode with Kenneth Anderson already. Everybody welcome to the addicted mind today. My guest is Kenneth Anderson and he is going to talk about hands and the harm reduction network. Kennedy WANNA introduce yourself. Yeah my name is Kenneth Anderson. I am the founder and CEO of the Hams Harm Reduction Network. It's a free of charge. A Leyland Support Group for people who WanNa make any positive change in their drinking habits from safer drinking to reduce drinking to quitting altogether. We also have a handbook. It's called how to change your drinking that I wrote. Our program has seventeen elements elements in that steps because they can be done in any order and they are all optional. And that's a bit about me and the program so Go ahead and ask me some question. Sure you got it. Tell me a little bit about how you got into this and harm reduction and we'll go into what that means as well but tell me a little bit about you and your story. Oh sure well you know not. Surprisingly I had some problems with alcohol I mean we are an alcohol focused group of. Oh we're not exclusive to that. We don't stop people from talking about other addictions other problems that they might have but our big focuses on alcohol because nobody was doing that so I used to drink a lot and it was getting into some trouble and I got involved with Several different groups. I tried alcoholics anonymous. That didn't fit me well. tried moderation management Was there for quite a while. I was actually working for them for a while and kind of well I was there at moderation management. I really developed the harm reduction approach. Once I learned about harm reduction. I got really fascinated by the concept. I started volunteering at the needle. Exchange Program in Minneapolis and that was just a great experience in it taught me so many things totally changed. My perspective turned my head around completely from everything I thought before and I realize the importance of encouraging every positive change I mean using clean needles is better than sharing used needles because prevent transmission of disease. I mean it should be a no brainer but it's still being fought in the United States in some states. Unbelievably I mean Europe. Must Look at us a G- ask and say what is wrong with these people. Well let's go back a little bit because let's talk about what's the model of harm reduction. I mean what does that mean like when we look at harm reduction and verse maybe the Absence Model? Tell me a little bit about like that. Well the absence model. The problem is the abstinence model. Says if you're not perfectly absolutely and completely abstinent all the time you're totally worthless piece of shit and any improvement that you make is not of any value at all you have to. It's a totally perfectionist model. Yeah it's very strange that has a motto progress not perfection when they demand perfection and you're totally shamed ostracized for any imperfection but I'm not going to Bash Aa. So let's not go into that too much okay. The harm reduction model is very very different. I mean it's a very pragmatic model in the United States. Well in fact it really got started in Holland but it was the same in both places drug users saw their friends dying from contracting HIV and getting AIDS and they said Hey. Nobody's doing anything about this for US drug users so we're going to do something ourselves we're going to hand out clean needles so that our friends don't die. It was all about saving people. You love saving your friends that you use drugs with saving your fellow drug users and that was the genesis I mean it was illegal in the United States the L. is illegal in many places illegal situations very complex right and I think when we look at harm reduction because it's about mitigating harm as much as possible and is different from that abstinence model. Where they you know demand one hundred percent sobriety and says look? We're not gonNA worry about that. We're just how do we reduce the risk? How do we reduce the harm? That's happening to you. And maybe that's not one hundred percent absence that's correct and well at this point. We should really mention that harm reduction as I said. It encourages every positive. Change the late Dan big of the Chicago. Recovery Alliance really introduced that slogan and he was a very influential person on all of us in the harm reduction movement. You know good friend of mine before he passed away recently. But it's about every positive change but that doesn't mean that we're opposed to absence because NBA. Good change for some people. We want to encourage people to pick a goal. That's fits them something. That is doable. And something that's right. I mean a lot of people coming into harm reduction and eventually they choose to abstain from whatever was causing them problems. A lot of others You know reduce their use or they reduce their risks of whatever they were involved with. And that's fine too. You know in harm reduction. There's not someone up there telling you that you know this is the only right thing you must have this goal. Rather it's about saying okay. What's good for you? What do you need? What can we do to help you right? And so a person can can come into harm reduction where they're at and do what fits right for them absolutely. That's what it's all about and as I said. Harm reduction includes abstinence in the broad definition of harm reduction sometimes the term is used more narrowly just To talk about that people who are still using.

"And there were no visuals. It was just the audio but it sounded so much like a human voice is like like a soprano being controlled without the need to take breath. You could get louder and quieter just with the movement of a hand so for me. It was just that moment of hearing incredible sound and thinking. Yeah this instrument already to learn to play. I think it's fair to say uh-huh through most of its history. The ceremony has been employed as Castro special effect. There was a period in the nineteen thirties. Just after the invention of instrument when it was being touted especially by the Radio Corporation of America in the United States where it was being positioned as classical instrument so the expectation was that the people would have a therapy in the home. Next Piano that people would learn it as they do a clarinet. Or some other instrument and along with that Arena Reema different. Compositions were produced for Thurman Orchestra whether therapy and takes the role of of a solo instrument. Now I love this vision. What happened there? Were several rule. The difficulties that the Radio Corporation of America experienced in trying to market the chairman as a consumer or professional grade instrument. First of all the instrument. I was very difficult to play so there were no teachers. The method of playing. It was no obvious you couldn't just go straight from a violin piano to playing like you could say a Hammond organ or some other early electric musical instrument and what ended up happening was that musicians returned instrument furiously realizing that the the advertising material Israel was just completely wrong basically so it must break your heart when so much of the Fareham in composition today is simply cheesy Sifi I suppose we have to thank Science Science Fiction Horror Movies psycological thrillers for for having given the therapy and a lot of its repertoire.

"Around the Big Table and we had the piano there the sentimentalists in the in the corner and normally we would have to move it in the middle of the room to play it and then put back in the corner. So did you all gather around the therapy the living room for a sing along. You know you have to take space around the town. And because they're more people they all interact the failed and and they would make. It's difficult to control the talent so I have to ask you this question. How does the ferryman work? It wants electromagnetic electromagnetic field. We interact with the failed. We changed the capacity around the antenna. So that is attached to the capacity of the ESTELITA. The sound itself is created by the oscillators. Actually it is the hitter in metals. Does that creates the sound. It disestablished sound between two high frequency status. One was later works stable. Another one is a touchdown and gets these change in that speech so high frequency Asta later are not to hear themselves but the difference is something about we can hear A. I have got the loop antenna over the all new and when I moved my head away the volume increase back to that. It's good salt. I'm sorry I changed the peach if I call closer. Valentina she's Schreier so we have to move a hand near Antenna near the instrument. Mant as not just the movement of the hand it's movement of everything all your body is involved in this field so you become part of the instrument you are in the field. You're part of the culture. The theorem is undergoing a revolution as a new generation of players. Take up the instrument since they are easier to find today and less expensive compared to my pathetic and lonely therapy enlist as in Paris And of course there is a Cornucopia of resources online to learn how to play it. I invited one of the new great players to the economy the studio to explain his love of the instrument. And Its Future Charlie. Draper is a therapist in London whose performances have taken him around the world. When I was growing up I played? I played the piano and I wanted to learn a second instrument and I was very fortunate that when I was school one of my music teachers had been obsessed with one thousand nine hundred eighty s synth pop and he wants to teach about the art of noise and The fair lights and other another sort of early electronic musical instruments and in get there. He started at the very beginning. The door and electric music with the SARUMAN. The on Martineau and these other amazing early early valve operated instruments. He mentioned that there was an electronic musical instrument controlled without touching it and that launched in my mind. Is something really unusual. I want to explore later and so a few years later when I decided to pick up a second instrument I was investigating and I found a recording into that of the German therapist Karleena Ike playing a piece on the therapy.

"Science and technology we are going to take a look at an icon of both science and music and how one individual made an extraordinary contribution to culture music and yes even spycraft in two thousand twenty marks the one hundredth anniversary of many things for science fiction aficionados. There are a number of important anniversaries. It is the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the sci-fi authors. Ray Bradbury and on the second of January Isaac Asimov. It's the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Star Trek actor. James Doohan Scotty and the doctor who actor Patrick Troughton. He's better known as the second doctor. However the year two thousand twenty also marks the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of something even closer to my heart? It's something that shares the scifi connection with these people. It is a fairly simple piece of electronics. In fact it is a musical instrument the music imagination that you have to have before you start playing Every instrument is different. I know so every player that also old calls it instruments to behave differently. You can produce this siren by pushing in your hand forward from your shoulder towards the antenna and calling it back. Yes I am talking about the ferrum with. It's eerie wine and brought to- whale. The ferrum for many people is the distinctive soundscape type of cheesy one thousand nine hundred fifty s sci fi movies but there is much more to it than that and here. I need to relate a personal story it is a I love story and it takes place in the fitting city of Paris in the early. Nineteen Ninety S A dashing. Young journalist journalist realizes that his life is incomplete. He realizes that the object of his desire is the therapist paramount. But it's not quite so simple in Paris in the Nineteen Ninety S. The only way to get therapy is to assemble one from a mail order kit but I am not deterred. I can pay the hundreds of dollars I can learn to sold electrical wiring after all I am committed but then I read the fine print the seller is not responsible if electrocute myself or burn down the building and I realize that perhaps it's not such a good idea to build a therapist. So instead I admired from afar listening to the classical sickle stylings of our wrong more watching the phlegm plan one onstage and falling in love to the sounds of the beach boys on the song. Good vibrations which was actually performed with tanner which is a variant of the therapy. And I've been Saruman love from afar until now the instrument is named after its inventor Lev Sergeyevich termine also known as Louis on ferryman and in many ways the flamboyant experimental sound reflects the life that term himself lived there very few people.

Inventions is the American composer historian and author Albert Linski Okay. He wrote the biography. theran ether music and espionage. Behrman was born into czarist Russia into into a relatively wealthy family and he was thrust into World War One as a soldier and somebody who also did radio work then after World War One came the Russian revolution and he was caught up in that personally and then the Russian civil war where he was actually blowing up radio towers and fleeing and then he came to America just during the ten years essentially of the Great Depression and lived through that and saw that APP from the American perspective then he left and went back to Russia just in time for World War Two and work through that and was also of of course imprisoned in Gulag there and saw that up close then he became part of the Cold War and a lot of secret work for the Russian government and then eventually emerged into Paris Georgia and saw that and I always liked to say that he joined the Communist Party himself health after Perestroika and one of his friends said to him. Why would you do that? Everybody else is running the other way and his answer. I always always loved this. He said I promised it to Landon. Can you tell us the history of how Saruman invented the Instrument Thurman came upon this principle sort of through the back door in some ways he was working in a laboratory in Russia after the Revolution Aleutian and he was a young newly minted communist scientist. He had no choice really because he was Russian and he was working in a laboratory Ori with actually a gas neater and it was something to measure the relative density gases of all things in it had a little meter Allah meter that would flick back and forth and he decided just on a lark Wedneday to hook up to this something that had a kind of a whistling tones own so that not only would you visually see on a meter the change in density of gases under different conditions but you would also hear a pitch go higher or lower depending on the density. But then he'd found that when he put his hand near this device is hand actually affected what was going going on the meteoric kind of injured. Fear the reading and he could make that whistling tango. IRA or lower depending on how close an was to the device so this was the idea of hand capacities which is the whole basis of the theorem and the idea that we all have electrical fields round our body so he discovered this principle and his lab. Supervisor came running over and he started playing melodies on this because he was also a cellist. He studied cello on the college level. And he he started playing melodies and they said you should make this into an instrument Aubert also told me that a remarkable Thurman player called Lydia Cavanaugh. A relative of Leeann Thurman lived live here in Britain in a small town in Oxfordshire so there was no question I had to speak to her. Hello I'm Ken. Cookie Lilia convenience. Yes Hi it's so nice to meet you okay. There is one other thing about Lydia. She was also the last person to be taught the instrument by Leeann Thurman and self. I hold I don't remember the meeting.

I think I don't know if it's called a revival if it's just put up again is it still a revival if it's not old as hell but the Waverley gallery, which he wrote in two thousand is now up in New York. It's got Elaine may and it Joan Allen is in it. Michael, Sarah is in it. Great writer, and I was a little intimidated. I always assumed I'm going to be outgunned. Intellectually? By people who do who right theater? I I don't know why that is I guess I have a place in my in my heart. And in my mind that is threatened by people that have the wherewithal to write plays. I guess I put a lot of stock in the possibility of theater, and what it can do. And I find that some plays or more abstract. Those are the ones that always get me after I think it was early on when I started reading or seeing Sam shepherd plays Mike where the fuck does this come from. But I'm still sort of a intimidated and and. Nervous when I talked to play rights, but Kenneth Lonergan and myself had a great conversation. He came to the hotel in New York, and we sat there and listened to sirens through the window and talked about New York and about plays in about all kinds of stuff. It was actually a interesting thing happened after. After we the.
