Dr Mroczek explains why children can be cold blooded killers. She downplays “therapeutizing” the behavior of children by having agendas to ‘discover’ maladapted children who may commit atrocious acts as a replacement for living more meaningful, relational, and engaged lives with our children and each other. She emphasizes the need for shared everyday experience over time with each other to nourish mental well being which also functionally curtails mental states from being outside the fold of the norm. She points to values which belong to human beings as a group being subverted to technology and to the sale of products. She further talks about (psycho)pathology producing media content and bombardment. Dr Mroczek ends with a plea against using animals incarcerated and effectively tortured in research.

Dr Mroczek talks with licensed Social Worker Elizabeth Reid about the problems and clinical syndromes increasingly being experienced by young adolescents and teens. The discussion can be useful to teens and to their parents to better understand what they may be seeing in each other and how they might proceed with a better compass preclude a rut of depression, apathy, and despair.
