    in Self Help

    During the month of July, please enjoy these previously recorded shows. We will return live every Tuesday night beginning August 5, 2014. Enjoy the summer!


    In many communities around the country there are community mediation centers supported by volunteer mediators.  Community Boards of San Francisco is the oldest community mediation center in the country, started in 1976.  The philosophy of community mediation centers is to empower community members to resolve their own disputes rather than resorting to courts or other outsiders to do it for them. Participants in mediation have found that the process helps them feel heard, and increases their understanding of themselves and the other person as well.  Community Boards has handled thousands of cases in its 36 year history, and has helped 85% of those who use their mediation services reach a successful agreement.


    Cordell Wesselink, is Mediation Program Manager of Community Boards. He has a Master’s Degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution, and Peacebuilding from California State University at Dominguez Hills. He is a mediator and facilitator, and also teaches meeting facilitation skills for Community Board.

    Narrative Mediation: Loosening the grip of conflict

    in Relationships

    Narrative mediation is a culturally focused practice that is based upon the notion that our lives are shaped by the stories that people tell about us and by the stories that we tell ourselves. The goal of the narrative mediator is to co-author stories that highlight strengths and competencies, rather than conflict. It helps people separate themselves from conflict-saturated stories and gives them the opportunity to re-author relationships in more peaceful, cooperative, and respectful ways. From this alternative position, the resolution of conflict can often happen much more smoothly and effectively than in traditional problem-solving approaches.


    Dr. Gerald Monk is a Professor in the Department of Counseling and School Psychology at San Diego State University and has a primary role in training Marriage and Family Therapists. Gerald is a practicing Marriage and Family Therapist in California and a mediator and trainer in collaborative divorce practices and a conflict resolution consultant in health care. Gerald worked as a psychologist and mediator in New Zealand for fifteen years prior to moving to the United States in 2000.

    Mediation Monday: NFL, NBA, MLB and More

    in Professional

     


    NFL:


    Which NFL QB is most likely to win their first superbowl first? Does that make sense? Sure it does. There are a lot of great QB's in the NFL who have never won a ring, and the team debates who they think, if any, will get that ring first. Names like Romo, Rivers, Ryan, Dalton, Stafford etc....


    The NFL is investigating the "sticky gloves" that WR's may be wearing. They want to see if it gives players a competitive edge. The team decides if this is a good thing or a waste of time. 


    NBA:


    One of the best "work-beefs" of this generation was the famous split between Shaq and Kobe. The two could have done so well together. Shaq says today, according to CBSSports, that he forgives Kobe. More to come, so tune in! 


    MLB: 


    If you got to take any player in the MLB, ANY PLAYER, to build a fantasy baseball franchise around in a keeper league, which player would you take? The team tells you theirs! 


    OTSNN: OTSNN money league draft is sunday and monday (if filled). 


    Draft strategies, what is the best way to win a title consistently in fantasy football? 


    Do you prefer college sports or pros: you willl LOVE this exposive debate.
