Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings. Couples can learn how to prepare for life with their new baby and how to be the best parenting team possible by finding new ways to strengthen their relationship, and foster their baby’s development during this challenging time.

Tory Sherlock is currently in the last year of her undergraduate studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston, graduating with Honors and a BA in Psychology. She is trying to continue on to graduate school for music therapy. For her senior thesis this year, she is researching the efficacy of art therapies in a variety of contexts including healing and rehabilitation. This study will focus on the perspective of the therapist and giver of treatment, not just client/patient outcome. Part of her research will include carrying out interviews with prospective therapists who are willing to answer some questions about their stance on their work, what brought them to the field, along with some other similar topics.
Since I get requests for interviews or information from students frequently, I thought I'd record this one so that other students looking for similar information might be able to use it for their projects, too.
Brother Mac will be back on hand to discuss fatherhood from his experience and his perspective.
How do you keep a good relationship when there are so many kids by different mothers?
Why do so many Black people feel that not having a father figure is okay?
There's more, more and much more!
The issue of the Black father has been going on for generations and unfortunately in a negative way.
Whether we are talking about the absentee father, the deadbeat dad, the abusive father, the man that never really came around, the man that had all those kids, the man that wouldn't marry my mom, the man that we never met or the one that we can't seem to get it together with, the Black father is a polarizing figure. He commands a lot of attention for a man that so many people say hardly exists in our lives.
The issues with fathers is not exclusive to Black people. Other races and ethnic groups have had similar issues with fathers but their issues seem to have dealt more with abusive or neglectful fathers inside the home. Many Black people have the opposite experience.
This is not a general show concerning fathers though. This show will focus on personal issues that people have had in the Black family with their fathers.
What has been your experience concerning your dad? Was he there? Was he absent? Have you been mad at him most of your life or have you been looking for him most of your life?
Has someone else that is not been your biological dad been your dad all your life? How did that turn out?
Have you been taught to feel like a father is not as important in your life as a mother is?
What about people who have sons? Do we secretly fear that our sons won't be there for their children if they grew up without a dad? Do we try to prevent that from happening or do we let the chips fall where they may?
What can be done to remedy the situation of the Black father in relation to the child, the family and the community?

Dr. Williams has had an interest in medical research at an early age. After watching his grandmother struggle with breast cancer, he set out on a journey to find a cure. In college, Dr. Williams spent his spare time in the labs and library researching gene therapy. He won many awards for his efforts.
After receiving his Medical Degree from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, Dr. Williams became interested in a new concept: destroying cancer cells by using radiofrequency ablation of tumors. This procedure used the same minimally-invasive technique of using imaging to guide the needle straight into the tumor and instead of biopsying the tumor, it was heated and destroyed. This was already being done in the liver at other research hospitals, but was relatively new to other areas of the body.
It didn't take long for the word to spread about this new procedure, and Dr. Williams was performing ablations on many patients around the world.He won many awards including the Radiological Society of North American Resident / Fellow of the Year.
As one of the pioneers of cancer ablation, Dr. Williams founded The American Cancer Ablation Center in 2003 and began seeing patients at his office in Gulf Shores. He takes pride in being able to offer his patients the latest, most advanced medical imaging technology and procedures available to date.

Building trust and maintaining that trust for someone or something can really take a toll on you emotionally when it gets violated.
Sometimes however, the limited trust that you had for someone or something gets exceeded and that can take a toll on you emotionally as well. that's a good thing though.
BDSM is a variety of erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other interpersonal dynamics. Given the wide range of practices, some of which may be engaged in by people who do not consider themselves as practicing BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture is usually dependent on self-identification and shared experience. Interest in BDSM can range from one-time experimentation to a lifestyle.
Should Christian married couples experiment, should they be in the lifestyle... Is there a biblical bases to why Christian married couples should not be involved? Is there a social problem. Share this with your friends and join us this Thursday for just one hour... Call in and leave your two cents where it matters.

It takes stamina and endurance and determination to devise a plan and stick to it. The beginning of the year is when the men get separated from boys in this regard. By now, people are either wondering if they should've started what they started or if they need to change direction.
How's that workout plan going? What about that diet?
Have you ran back to that lover that you kicked to the curb?
Are you still not speaking to those toxic friends that you cut off?
Have you started adding back those friends that you deleted off of social media?
Have you started back cursing and swearing yet?
When was the last time you smoked a cigarette?
How much money have you saved so far?
Still sticking to that celibacy plan?
Yeah, it's only been less than a month but it seems like a lifetime when you feel like you've made the wrong decision or when you bitten off more than you can chew. People go overboard with New year's plans all the time. They get fed up and and make rash decisions. How about you? Are you sticking to the gameplan?
Let's see if we can help each other out. Let's support each other. Let's see if we can get each other back on the right track and follow through until at least the spring. LOL
The thing about this is that when you argue, fight and breakup with someone, you never know if and when y'all might get back together. If you put all their business out there.......
Some couples say that they share eveythingwith their loves but do they share every single thing with each other?
What if they don't? Are they wrong?
