How Telling Our Silenced Stories Can Change the World

  • 2014

Anne Hallward is a practicing Psychiatrist and the host of Safe Space Radio in Portland, Maine. She trained and taught at Harvard Medical School. Along with wonderful collaborators, she designed new classes on Death and Dying, Human Sexuality, Cultural Competence and Psychiatric Interviewing. Each of these classes addresses subjects that people have strong feelings about, but avoid discussing. She started Safe Space Radio (www.safespaceradio.com) in 2008 to give voice to stories that have been silenced by shame and stigma. She believes that heart-felt, courageous conversations have the power to inspire, soften conflict, bring people out of isolation and change the culture.
