SORT BY Relevancy
THE FRIEND ZONE - Call (347) 237-5342 to LISTEN live or join in on the discussion.
There are differing explanations about what causes a person to be placed in the friend zone by another. It might result from misinterpreted signals or from a fear that a deeper relationship might jeopardize the friendship.
Here are some of my own ideas of several cases in which someone might become relegated to the friend zone:
(1) person A is insufficiently attracted to person B,
(2) person A misinterprets nonverbal cues from person B signaling their interest in deepening the relationship,
(3) there is sexual repulsion (but not enough to block a friendship).
(4) In a friendship between the two people, being relegated to the friend zone can happen to either person
(5) In another instance, a woman described her male friend, someone she was comfortable with as if he was one of her girlfriends, but their relationship became problematic when he wanted their relationship to develop romantically but she did not. One man compared the friend zone to being a "third wheel" and having only a platonic relationship with a woman.(6) the friend zone is "like the penalty box of dating, when your only crime is not being buff and unobtainable.
 always having girlfriends who were "girls" but were only his "friends", meaning there was no sex between them.
Ever had to take care of a customer who had Limited English Proficiency or LEP? Sometimes communication is difficult when we speak the same language. Now imagine trying to treat someone who needs your help and you can't understand each other. What do you do?

Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP. The Center for Social Thinking
The Whole Child and Social Thinking—Unraveling the challenges of a diagnosis to support social thinking and learning
Michelle Garcia Winner specializes in the treatment of individuals with social-cognitive deficits: those with diagnoses such as high-functioning autism, Asperger Syndrome and nonverbal learning disorder. She began teaching Social Thinking® in 1995 to brighter students when she went to work for a high school district as the district’s speech language pathologist. Social Thinking was born out of necessity as a way to reach those “bright but socially clueless students” that needed more information than just what social skill to use. They needed to know why they should bother to use that skill. The strength of Michelle's work is that she breaks down the research and abstract concepts and creates concrete ways for this to be done. This approach led GreatSchools.org, a leading national nonprofit organization, to call Michelle, "...the leading expert in the field of social skills."
Patricia Hirsch, MCC, interviews Jackie Sloane, MCC. Jackie will discuss how we can create profound change in our lives and organizations, based on what we tell ourselves is possible, and what we communicate. What do you want to create? Whose influence or involvement do you need? What matters to these people? How can you engage them? What requests do you need to make? What’s in the way of what you wish to create? Our beliefs, what we think about ourselves and others, and what’s possible is expressed in our verbal and nonverbal communication. Change the story you are telling yourself about what is possible, and align your speaking and actions, and you literally transform your life. Humans have enormous capacity for learning. This is actually simple, powerful, magical and may not always be easy.
Jackie Sloane has been coaching professionals for twenty years. Her clients transform their work lives through how they set goals, engage others, communicate, and cultivate relationships.

In our final radio broadcast for our segment To Touch and Be Touched we are going to explore the dark side of nonverbal communication. We will touch up on the differences and often neglected "bad" components of male caregivers and female caregivers that utilize haptics and proxemics.
In tonight's episode we dive a little deeper into the caregiver-patient dyad and the role of haptics and proxemics therein. We will explore the differences of physical health and emotional health and how each is communicated through these forms of nonverbal communication.

Author Terry Bams - Resident Relationship Coach 7:15pm
Terry Bams has taken the messes of his life and turned them into a message for the masses. Terry has successfully authored his autobiography, The Mind of a Womanizer.
"...Terry shares the details of the drama, humor, heartache, and sex surrounding his countless encounters with numerous women..."
Because of his experiences, dozens of men and women have sought his advice about dating, relationships, and marriage.
It is his faith and his own personal relationship with God that has led him to his calling of helping others mend broken relationships. Terry says he will always strive to encourage others and to be a positive influence in our society.
Busy with his work as a relationship coach and mentoring, it is surprising that Terry is also currently working on his second and third books, a sequel to The Mind of a Womanizer, and a relationship self-help book for men and women to be released in the Spring of 2013 and Summer of 2013 respectively.
"...While his successes have been plentiful (and the best is yet to come), Terry takes none of the credit, but gives all of the glory to God..."
In this first segment of podcasts, Communication Studies scholar, Anna explores the diversity in nonverbal communication, more specifically "haptics." She dives into what touch and space really means in communication with a primary focus on the caregiver-patient dyad
Some black men say black women are unrealistic in their expectations and want too much. Of course, wanting a good hardworking man who respects women isn't asking too much. But what about when it goes far beyond that? For some women, having a good man just isn't enough. They also want a Lexus, a two-story home in the suburbs, and a string of credit cards. When they don't have these things, they moan and complain as though life is terrible. If the man dares to say something about how he's happy with things as they are, he'll be accused of being complacent, lazy, and lacking ambition. It's fine to have goals and want some luxuries. But counting the blessings you already have never hurts either.
4. NOT SAYING WHAT SHE MEANS
"Women expect you to read their minds like a psychic." --Jamal, college student
Men aren't very good mind readers. In fact, we often have difficulty just figuring out what women mean with the words they speak. I think women are far more sophisticated communicators than men; they seem to be more adept at the subtleties of gestures, facial expressions, and body language. Therefore, men and women almost always suffer from communication breakdowns in relationships.Some men fail to read the nonverbal cues of the women in their lives. When this happens, an argument is almost always the result, because the woman feels that she communicated her feelings to the man and he ignored her. For example, I'll use the scenario from the previous paragraph. When that man comes home from his night out with the guys, his wife is going to be angry at him. She'll probably snap at him when she talks, slam doors, or even yell at him.
"What's the problem?" he'll ask.
Patricia St. John started her career in teaching, and after nine years left to raise her son with disabilities. Through her own challenges with limited vision Patricia further developed her other senses and was ultimately drawn to gain a greater understanding of, and to study finer aspects of nonverbal communication links and skills. This lead to Patricia’s extraordinary work with dolphins in allowing them to educate her. Her ground breaking research with dolphins pioneered the way of understanding often silent forms of communication in a whole new way. Using what she had discovered and developed from her years of behavioral interacting with different species of dolphins, Patricia was able to break through to children with autism, helping to bridge the gap of communication between these children and their caregivers. Based on Patricia’s astonishing work with dolphins and children with autism, she wrote her award winning book, “The Secret Language of Dolphins.” The book won the prestigious Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Educator’s Award. St. John is also a long time Fellow of the famed Explorers Club in recognition of her pioneering discoveries and her work in uncharted areas of nonverbal communication, as well as her many published professional papers on the subject. Patricia's newest book: “Once An Enchanted Island”, while fiction weaves within it many truths that we all can relate to. She also runs and operates two businesses, Enchanted Environments, and Patricia St. John Fine Antiques.

In a world that is increasingly interconnected the need to understand other cultures and customs is important for effective communication. Lack of knowledge of another culture can lead to awkward mistakes in communication. The mistakes may not only confuse people, but also offend them. One famous example is Pepsi Cola's "Come Alive With Pepsi" campaign. When it was translated for the Taiwanese market, the slogan conveyed the upsetting news that, "Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the grave."
