What do you think of when you hear the words "shock treatment?" Now chances are it's not "That's a really effective treatment for depression!" Well, despite its reputation, electroconvulsive therapy, is in many cases the thing that works when medication doesn't. Former first lady of Massachusetts Kitty Dukakis knows that firsthand, and she and co-author Larry Tye tell the story in Shock: The Healing Power of Electroconvulsive Therapy. Plus, a conversation about race in the past present and future with Dr. Terrence Roberts of the Little Rock Nine. Join us Monday morning at nine
