    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.

    Use Mediation to Resolve Disputes

    in Self Help

    Today we will discuss how to mediate a dispute. What is mediation, you ask?  Mediation is a process of bringing people together to meet and talk about what is bothering them, and to do so in a civil, productive manner.  The goal of mediation is for the parties to agree upon a reasonable compromise between their positions and move on with their lives.  The overarching goal is to foster improved harmonious relationships for all persons involved.  


    In each of our Harmony Keys broadcasts, we talk about what we call the three harmony words:  LISTEN, LEARN, and LOVE.  These three action words play an integral role in mediation.  You might say, "Oh no, Dr. Joan!  Love cannot be part of mediation because there is usually so much anger tied up in the dispute."


    Yes, there can be anger and anxiety and a whole host of other negative emotions mixed up in a disagreement.  But listen to this broadcast to find out why LOVE is indeed a key element of mediation.  You'll find the answer at the end of the Mediation Segment.


    If you are experiencing relationship issues at home, at work, or at play, then listen to all of the Harmony Keys podcasts 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, although 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 whipping up delicious mashed potatoes.  Find out how diversity and harmony can live in the same house.
