    High Conflict: An App that Simplified Coparenting!

    High Conflict: An App that Simplified Coparenting!

    If you have young children, there is an ongoing need to communicate with your coparent about the business of raising your children. 
    For many high conflict divorces, we know this ongoing communication will be an invitation to more conflict and contention.  
    Today’s guest explains that it doesn’t have to be that way.  
    Michael Daniels is the founder and CEO of FAYR a modern-day coparenting app which stands for  Family Advocacy is Your Responsibility. 
    FAYR is by no means the only digital coparenting option available, but it is one of the first APPs and therefore, offers you the ability to manage your coparenting needs while on the go...using your digital devices.
    Michael explains how the app addresses 4 key areas that require ongoing communication with your ex and how using the app invites less talking and disagreement and more ease and clarity.  The areas include scheduling, expense tracking, messaging, his uniquely designed geo check-in feature.

    JBD Team Talks: The Liberating Power of a Positive NO

    JBD Team Talks: The Liberating Power of a Positive NO

    Can understanding how to say “no” in a new and more productive way benefit relationships, even those headed for or in the midst of some stage of the divorce process? In this team talk Karen and Lisa will discuss how “no” can improve relationships and share how to prepare and deliver beneficial “no’s”. 
     
    How we say “no” determines how well our “no” is received. Saying “no” skillfully is ever more significant during the critical conversations that occur leading up to, during, and post divorce.  “No” delivered without skill alienates and angers.  A consciously constructed and delivered “no” enhances the respect we have for ourselves, the way others perceive us, and improves relationships. Well delivered “no’s” relieve a significant amount of the stress and expense for everyone involved during the divorce process and the reconstruction period post divorce. This is a skill that will benefit you immensely as well as set a healthy example for everyone around you. 
     
    Today’s Team Talk was inspired by “ The Power of a Positive No” by author William Airy.

    Voices of Celebration: I Felt Like I Lost Everything. Now I Have More Than I Ever Imagined

    Voices of Celebration: I Felt Like I Lost Everything. Now I Have More Than I Ever Imagined

    Bob faced a true emotional Tsunami as he found himself divorced and out of a job within three weeks of his wife asking for a divorce. If that wasn't enough to throw him on his ear, in his trusting way, he had his wife's attorney manage the divorce and was left with spousal support and child support based on a job he no longer had and couldn't seem to replace!
     
    The journey from that dark place included looking at his fear of losing his children, shame and self doubt based on his religious upbringing and a destructive habit he used to regulate himself and a deep sense of financial insecurity.
     
    Bob shares the work he did, the amazing place he is in now with great relationships with each of his kids and enjoying getting back out into the dating world as a better version of himself and therefore meeting and dating interesting women. He feels blessed for the divorce, the journey it set him on and the man he is today. Tune in!

    High Conflict: What to know about Parent Coordinators

    High Conflict: What to know about Parent Coordinators

    A Parent Coordinator (PC) helps mediate and resolve disputes between parents in high conflict divorces. A PC is often a vital support both during and post divorce.  If you find it impossible to make joint decisions with your STBX and virtually every interaction turns into a struggle or a power play, this podcast is for you!!
     
    Parent Coordinators can be mental health experts, attorneys or mediators.  What they all have in common is their training as a parent coordinator with the ability to help parents stay child centers and learn how to collaborate. When that isn’t possible, the PC can be the tie-breaker. The challenges you are facing with your co-parent will inform what PC expert would be best for your situation and how detailed your settlement agreement should be regarding the PC’s involvement and authority.  
     
    Dr. Lauren Behrman shares a wealth of information on what a parent coordinator is and is not, the value of involving them in the process during the divorce, the questions you want to ask in order to choose the right PC, and so much more!
     
    Dr. Behrman has her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and has been in private practice since 1985 and has considerable professional experience in treating children and families of divorce.  Lauren is trained in High-Conflict Co-parent Counseling, Parent Coordination, Interdisciplinary Collaborative Divorce Practice and Mediation.  Dr. Behrman co-authored “Loving Your Children More Than You Hate Each Other”, a book for high conflict divorcing parents which was published in 2018.

    Healthy Romantic Relationships: The Transformational Power of the Enneagram in Life and Love

    Healthy Romantic Relationships: The Transformational Power of the Enneagram in Life and Love

    Today we are diving into a new paradigm I recently began learning about, the Enneagram which was created in 1915 and refined in 1960 to include the 9 personality types. 
     
    The Enneagram is a system of nine interconnected personality archetypes or types. It describes three “centers of intelligence,” nine personality “types,” and twenty-seven “subtypes” that provide an amazingly accurate picture of personality in terms of the patterns associated with the way we function.  
     
    Understanding your personality type and the type of those you are in relationship with…your spouse, kids, siblings, etc. opens an opportunity to lower our judgment and raise our acceptance of ourselves and others.  The end result, the Enneagram, guides you to  become the healthiest and most self-compassionate version of yourself and enables you to navigate all your relationships with more mastery.
     
    With me today  is Stephanie Barron Hall, author of “The Enneagram in Love: A Roadmap for Building and Strengthening Romantic Relationships.” Stephanie has an M.A. in Organizational Communication & Leadership), is a speaker, certified Enneagram coach, and  in 2017 founded @NineTypesCo, her Instagram page designed to to explore her own interest in the Enneagram, and support a growing community of people who are learning about the Enneagram, themselves, and their relationships together. Stephanie specializes in bringing clarity to complex concepts and communicating the Enneagram in a way that is relatable and concise so that it can be transformative for all.

Will make you feel less alone in your divorce

Karen is a wonderful host - warm, compassionate, honest, and encouraging. Her goal to help move you along in your divorce process keeps an eye on what the future could look like while also addressing the issues of anger, grief and loss that come with divorce. She does not shy away from difficult issues, but she is also constantly offering new ways to think about moving on. Wonderful, helpful podcast.

Karen is an excellent host!

I’ve been a podcast host for nine years on Last First Date Radio, and KarEn McMahon brought out a side of me that no other host has done! She asked the right questions, and she’s not afraid to go deep. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone who is journeying beyond divorce!
