This coming Monday at 7 on KTOO Dr. Elaine Schroeder will be back with her live show, Mind Over Matter . This week’s program will focus on possible erroneous assumptions that Western psychology has made about what we call human nature. Her guest will be Gary Weglarz, a Juneau psychotherapist who recently presented a paper at a national conference on this assumption shattering topic. So tune in this Monday to KTOO from 7 to 8 pm for a stimulating hour of discussion on just how culture-bound are our theories of human behavior.
