We become mindful by making the connection between today and yesterday allowing ourselves to live in the present.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and we will recognize it today with Dr. William Copeland, Associate Professor at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland recently wrote an article (published online 2/20, 2013 In JAMA Psychiatry) on the long-term effects of bullying behavior. The findings as to what extent bullying can affect a person’s adult functioning are alarming and should be a “call to arms,” to create effective bullying prevention programs in all schools and communities.
Dr. William Copeland is a clinical psychologist and epidemiologist, who trained at the University of Vermont and completed his clinical internship at Duke University Medical Center. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Center for Developmental Epidemiology in the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Copeland’s research program is supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD).
Are you outraged by custody battles frequently resulting in decisions that are not in the best interest of the child? We must find ways to change the justice system that discriminates against the "good enough" mother, and awards custody to fathers, who have proven themselves to be unfit, disinterested in the role, and often neglectful/abusive. Join Dr. Annie Abram and Dr. Phyllis Chesler, author of "Mothers on Trial: The Battle for Children and Custody" for the live discussion.

Today our guest, Rita Bailey, Co-Chair of the Domestic Violence and Abuse Partnership Task Force in Darien, CT, will describe how a grass roots community group can help raise domestic violence awareness.
Consider the statistics:
Every 9 seconds a woman is battered in the United States.
Conservatively, each year 1 million women suffer nonfatal violence by an intimate.
Nearly 1 in 3 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
Ninety to ninety-five percent of domestic violence victims are women.
As many as 324,000 women each year experience intimate partner violence during their pregnancy.
The U.S. Department of Justice reported that 37 percent of all women who sought care in hospital emergency rooms for violence-related injuries were injured by a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend.
Forty percent of teenage girls age 14 to 17 report knowing someone their age who has been hit or beaten by a boyfriend.
Studies of the Surgeon General's office reveal that domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44, more common than automobile accidents, muggings, and cancer deaths combined. Other research has found that half of all women will experience some form of violence from their partners during marriage, and that more than one-third are battered repeatedly every year.
Domestic Violence occurs in all communities. Victims have no profile.? They are found in all ethnic and demographic groups, can have no education or hold advanced degrees in professions such as medicine, law, or be voted the most upstanding citizen and perhaps even volunteer their time to combating ?domestic violence. ?You may be surprised to learn that the above statistics ?are undoubtedly on the low side?.
Is it possible to repair a broken marriage? Can it be repaired or is it best to throw in the towel?
How do we maintain loving relationships to our loved ones? Is there a formula? Does couple's counseling really work?
Along comes Dr. Sue Johnson who tells us that our attachment styles can change through reliable and loving relationships. Today, Dr. Johnson will help us understand how we can find connection to our loved ones.
Dr. Sue Johnson is an author, clinical psychologist, researcher, professor, popular presenter and speaker and one of the leading innovators in the field of couple therapy.

Today's guest is Barbara Paradiso, a pioneer in organizing academic programs for educating professionals working in the field of domestic violence at the University of Colorado's, School of Public Affairs. Yes, we can provide interpersonal violence awareness/education to the public, and make every effort to organize the legal and justice systems. However, the real question is: can abusers be rehabilitated? We know that abusers can stop their behavior when the fear of getting caught looms large, but can the abuser be clinically treated to "cure" his/her behavior?
Do we have data on the rate of recidivism, and the efficacy of treatment for abusers?
Why has this societal problem of interpersonal violence received so scant attention? While the current NFL domestic abuse "scandal," has resulted in a public out cry, will these recent incidents, not to mention the long history of unreported/reported interpersonal violence, go under the radar until another tragic incident occurs?
Barbara Paradiso is currently the Director of the Program and Center on Domestic Violence at the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver. Barbara has worked on behalf of battered women and their children for more than twenty years as an advocate, administrator and activist. Prior to her position at University of Colorado Denver, she served as the Director of Domestic Violence Programs for the Sunshine Lady Foundation of North Carolina. For twelve years, from 1985-1997, Barbara was the Executive Director of Boulder County Safehouse. Barbara has been active in the Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence as Co-Chair of the organization, Chair of the Legislative, Membership, and Finance Committees. She is currently Board President for the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and a newly elected member to the Board of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
It's not uncommon to think of domestic violence as a one time event; however, the overwhelming majority of domestic violence victims are routinely abused, leading to chronic major health problems. Women who have experienced Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in their lifetime were more likely to report having asthma, diabetes, frequent headaches, chronic pain, poor physical and mental health, also health problems which results in physical and psychological damage to victims and their families. It's a national health problem, not "their" problem, and all of us need to recognize and accept the severity of domestic violence and its consequences to society at large.
Today, I will be joined by Susan Delaney of DVCC (Domestic Violence Crisis Center CT) to help us understand the rippling effect of domestic violence, and the importance of joining together to deal with this crisis.
Susan Delaney is founder and director of the Medical Advocacy Project and the Training Advocacy Project for the Domestic Violence Crisis Center of Norwalk and Stamford. Susan has been working in the field of domestic violence advocacy for over twenty five years.
Whether you are a student or parent, the college admission’s process can be stressful and mystifying. How do you choose a school that is the best fit for you? What about finances? What’s the average number of schools a student typically applies to? Should equal valence be given to academics and social/cultural environments? When is the best time for students to begin to look at colleges? How important is an on-site visit to schools?
Is requesting an interview the best way to go even if it's not a requirement for admissions?
In short, what are the most important things to consider when applying to colleges?
Our guest today is Sheryl Santiago, independent educational consultant and owner of Coll-Edge Partners, LLC. Ms. Santiago is a member of the Higher Education Consultants Association.
Her business philosophy is based on the belief that there is no reason to focus on one dream school or think that getting into a particular college will determine a students' success in life. In fact, the "Best College" is the one that is the best fit for your individual student, and the good news is that students generally have many choices. A successful search is not about name or prestige- it's about where your student will have the best opportunity to thrive.
Sheryl Santiago works with students to determine a good mix of 8-10 schools, help them through the visit, interview, essay and application process and in many cases, after acceptance, can help parents appeal for more gifts, grants and scholarship monies. She knows that not every school is right or affordable for every student, so she takes a realistic approach with each family.
