Scott has two guests tonight, on widely different topics! First, Jeff Havens tells you, How To Get Fired!: The New Employee's Guide to Perpetual Unemployment.Then we turn to relationships and the lack of love and communication, when Scott talks with Nancy Dreyfus, psychotherapist, and author of the new book, Talk to me Like Someone You Love, a unique "Flash Card" way of opening up the channels between partners that has been shut down on honest and heart felt loving and relating. Jeff havens has written a hilarious and insightful guide for new employees on what NOT to do to make sure you stay employed! Sounds simple, but smart people do stupid things, as Jeff can so handily share. Then Nancy Dreyfus joins Scott. Think of all the times you and your partner have been in a warm, friendly space – and some little thing happens and everything changes. Only a nanosecond of impatience or an unwelcome question...and “cozy” is now feeling like “crazy.” Nancy Dreyfus is a psychotherapist who has spent a good part of her life figuring out how to re-establish closeness at times like these. Talk to Me Like I’m Someone You Love is a repair tool that will show you how to do this just by being yourself. It is the creation of someone who grew up thinking authentic meant pretending, while secretly wondering if there was a book somewhere “that told you what to say.” Talk to Me... is a collection of 101 self-aware messages for partners to “flash” to each other in the midst of an upsetting interaction: “You didn’t do anything wrong. It’s my own craziness – trust me to get through it.” “I hate having to walk on eggshells around you.” “I love you. I hate fighting. And can’t we just hug?” Each flash card comes with field notes to help you navigate life’s messiest moments.
