This episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck was recorded at TDE 2012 and features Rodrick Walters of The Upbeat Dad Organization based out of Miami, Florida. This is a great program for ALL dads to listen to, and moms as well.  If you know a father who’s not being all he can be for the sake of his kids, please share this program with them.

Rodrick went through a devastating divorce in the early 2000s. His little girl was just three at the time and there were  challenges that greatly reduced parenting time with his daughter, especially when his ex moved out of state.  Some dads lose touch with their children due to the circumstances of their divorce and Rodrick encouraged dads to stay involved in the lives of their children. 

Marital separation and divorce are challenging but they do not have to be destructive.  With the Upbeat Dad approach, fathers can stay connected with their children and have a powerful impact in their life. This program is about manning up to be a good father. Our kids need us in their lives and we need them in ours. Empowering dads and supporting families is the core of The Upbeat Dad.

By · Comments Comments Off

This program was recorded at The Divorce Expo in March, 2012, and features Singer/Songwriter, Terry Radigan.  Radigan debuted her first solo record, Radigan, which was released in 2000, and was praised by the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, and Mademoiselle, among others. Since then, Radigan has had her songs recorded by powerhouses, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, Patty Loveless, Anuna, City High, Vinyl Pinups, and many more.

Fast forward to 2012, and you’ll find Radigan’s latest album, The Breakdown of a BreakupThe album is a candid story of the breakup of a twenty-year relationship; sorrow, anger, wilderness, and the final phase of empowerment and moving on.

Terry shares her personal breakup story and tells how writing her new album was a form of therapy.  (The good news is, writers write some of their biggest hits during a breakup, and this album is awesome!)  And if you find yourself going through divorce, you’ll totally relate to her songs.

On this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., Dr. James Hollis joins us and provides insight into our lives and relationships.

James Hollis, Ph.D., taught Humanities for 26 years in various colleges and universities before retraining as a Jungian analyst at the Jung Institute of Zurich, Switzerland.  He is a licensed Jungian analyst in private practice, in Houston, Texas, where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston. Dr. Hollis has published eleven books with total sales well over 100,000 copies, the most recent being Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life (Gotham Books/Penguin).

What is your life’s purpose, and does it have  meaning?  What happens when we get off purpose?  Dr. Hollis helps us understand how we can be our worst enemy.  Much of our current unrest can be attributed to our experiences as children and young adults.  The paradox is that the adaptations that were necessary during childhood  often stand as the imprisoning behaviors and values later in life.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “If I’m doing all the right things, why doesn’t it feel right inside?”  How do we inherit our past, and how is it affecting our current life?  These questions, as well as thoughts on marriage and relationships, are discussed in this episode.

Getting over divorce and the emotional feelings that go along with it isn’t easy.  In this episode of Sex after Divorce with Juliana Neiman, we take a look at emotional obstacles that might prevent us from moving forward into healthy sexual relationships.

Some may enter into a new relationship only to find themselves still harboring feelings of low self-esteem and fear that their new relationship will go the same path as their last one.  By confronting our emotional issues up front and gaining a better understanding of ourselves, our fears and negative feelings fade away.

Juliana also addresses sexual emotions and fears that cause some people to feel insecure about becoming sexually involved with a new partner, and we discuss how to feel more comfortable with our own sexuality.
