It happens to all of us at one time or another.  A one-sided dispute flashes on the scene out of nowhere between two people who know each other very well. Here’s what often occurs: First person of the pair takes offense about something the second person does or says, or doesn’t do, or doesn’t say.  However, Person One then refuses to communicate about the fault. Instead, Person One hides, shuts down, closes the door, won’t answer the phone. Person Two is in the dark about what went wrong.

Today, Dr. Joan discusses the importance of resolving the dispute or at least taking a stab at opening communication again. The life of the relationship depends on resolving the misunderstanding.  Without resolution, the relationship may be permanently ruptured.  Listen to Dr. Joan’s advice to both Person One AND Person Two on how to repair the falling-out and get back on track as friends who truly love each other.

Are you experiencing relationship issues at home, at work, or at play?  Tune in to hear Dr. Joan describe alternative solutions. Follow along as she presents keys for harmony. 

A portion of each program is devoted to the reading of Dr. Joan's published stories about human disputes.  She is currently reading from her first novel Gra Im Thu! I Love You!  The story is about two Irish families who find themselves intermarrying, even though they are poles apart in the areas of religion and politics.  Tune in and listen to the story, as the O'Grady and Gwynn families learn to solve their potato encounters and develop a method for making delicious mashed potatoes together.  Find out how diversity and harmony can live in the same house.
