The psychology of radicalism

IMG_7518.jpg

Most people want to think of themselves as rational and as having arrived at their beliefs through reason and evidence.
But do we?
On The Point, our panel of mental health experts discuss the psychology of rationalization and radicalism.
Guests are psychiatrists Dr. Jonathan Schwartz and Dr. Marc Whaley, and social worker Jenny Putnam. Mindy Todd hosts.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
