(MYRTLE BEACH)   On Monday, August 31 at 10 pm ET and 7 pm PT Aljazeera America Television will be broadcasting a program entitled “Fault Lines – How a Utah Woman Got Hooked on Painkillers.”  Here is a link to a preview of that show – http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/fault-lines/2015/8/how-did-a-utah-woman-get-hooked-on-painkillers.html

The program focuses on a woman who was a patient of Lynn R. Webster, MD, head of Life Tree Pain Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Dr. Webster’s pain clinic had been raided by the D.E.A. in 2010 because of high numbers of deaths while patients were under his treatment.  During an interview, Webster had said “I do not know precisely how many former clinic patients died of an opioid overdose. At most it could be 20.  Many of those probably were suicides. I don’t think any of the deaths were for scripts I wrote. They were from staff.”  (In some states, including Utah, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can write prescriptions if they are supervised by a physician — and the prescription is signed by a physician.  Was this called throwing your staff under the bus, Dr. Webster?)

I have chosen and quoted words to illustrate my discussion about the significance of projection and the importance of unconscious emotional content in any conflict.

(TASMANIA)    Understanding human conflict requires us to understand human psychology. And it is only when we understand the psychology that drives conflict that we can take intelligent steps to address it.
