Biden Inauguration Analysis | Behavioral Treatment's 'Failed Promise'
Our panel looks at the tone, language and message behind President Joseph R. Biden's inaugural address, and a former New York Times writer sheds light on the predatory practices of behavioral treatment programs.
Segment 1, beginning at 4:35: President Joe Biden was sworn into office in an inaugural ceremony unlike any other in U.S. history.
Biden immediately faces three major crises; the pandemic, the economy, and the increasingly polarized political divide. Speaking directly to the people, the president called for unity in facing these challenges.

Segment 2, beginning at 32:58: Kenneth R. Rosen knows something about wilderness camps and residential therapeutic programs for struggling young people. He was once in one himself.
Rosen has written a book on what he calls the 'failed promise' of America’s behavioral treatment programs. In it he takes a tough look at programs that remove troubled teens to remote wilderness programs and treatment facilities across the country.
