 Richmond, we are working on improving our signal in your area. In the meantime, we would love to give you access to our high quality streams for free. Email richmond@wnrn.org

Update on WNRN  on the WNRN translator in Richmond/Midlothian: We continue to seek permanent solutions to having the signal as strong and clear as is allowed, and to that end we have purchased a strong receive antenna to give ourselves the best chance of receiving a clean and consistent signal from our main broadcast tower on Carter Mountain in Albemarle county. Our next step is to install the new antenna with a tower crew scheduled for the second week of September.  While we believe that this will work, we won’t know for certain until it has been installed and tested, so we continue to seek out other options to solve this issue permanently.  We’ll keep you posted each step of the way.

We have heard from many of you, our members, and are inspired by your passion about what you hear on WNRN and the fact that you’re not able to hear it in your cars and on your home receivers.

Thank you for your patience and understanding of the situation – please continue to check back here for updates.

Mark Keefe

General Manager/Program Director

Dr. Bessel van der Kolk discusses his recent book detailing three decades of research on how innovative treatments including neurofeedback, mindfulness techniques, play, and yoga, are helping veterans, survivors of sexual abuse, and children of drug-dependent parents deal with the psychological—and neurological—effects of trauma.

 

Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. has been the Medical Director of The Trauma Center in Boston for the past 30 years. He is a Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School and serves as the Director of the National Center for Child Traumatic Stress Complex Trauma Network. He is past President of International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. Though he identifies himself primarily as a clinician, he has published well over 100 peer reviewed scientific articles on various aspects of trauma, including his current projects: 1) yoga for treating PTSD, funded by the National Institutes of Health; 2) the use of theater for violence prevention in the Boston public schools, funded by the CDC; 3) the mechanisms of EMDR; 4) sensory integration; and 5) the use of neurofeedback in PTSD.

 

He participated in the first neuroimaging study of PTSD, in the first study to link Borderline Personality Disorder with childhood trauma; was co-principal investigator of the DSM IV Field Trial for PTSD and is chair of the NCTSN DSM V workgroup on Developmental Trauma Disorder. He has written extensively about using neuroscience research to identify appropriate treatments for PTSD and completed the first NIMH-funded study of EMDR. He has taught at universities and hospitals around the world.
