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.
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.

Divorce is a transition that half of once married couples experience. In fact, it is sometimes referred to as “uncoupling,” reflecting the lessening stigma of being divorced. However, divorce is a unique experience for each individual going through the process. It’s unusual for a couple not to have acrimonious thoughts and feelings toward their soon to be divorced partner. Leaving a relationship you thought would last forever is, to say the least, disappointing, even if you are sure it’s the “right” thing to do. Divorce always creates change, and sometimes the loss can feel unbearable, even if there is relief.
Our today's guests are Francine Baras and Nicole B. Feuer, mother and daughter, co-authors of "37 Things I Wish I’d Known Before My Divorce", and co-founders of Start Over Smart: Divorce Advisors, LLC. Our discussion will include a wealth of information about the legal and financial aspects of divorce as well as the very personal. How do I tell the children? How can I minimize the stress for me and my family?

There are many misconceptions about what it means to be gifted.
Gifted Students Don’t Need Help; They’ll Do Fine On Their Own.
Would you send a star athlete to train for the Olympics without a coach? Gifted students need guidance from well-trained teachers who challenge and support them in order to fully develop their abilities. Many gifted students may be so far ahead of their same-age peers that they know more than half of the grade-level curriculum before the school year begins. Their resulting boredom and frustration can lead to low achievement, despondency, or unhealthy work habits. The role of the teacher is crucial for spotting and nurturing talents in school.

There’s a revolution taking place in understanding Learning Disabilities. With new neuroscientific findings, we see that an individual with dyslexia--a language based LD-- has a brain that works differently while reading. Educators at all levels are taking this new knowledge to use new assistive technologies to tailor content to the individual mind of the student. Now, a student with dyslexia and a student with aspraxia -- whose brain has problems planning to move the body parts (e.g., lips, jaw, tongue) needed for speech -- in the same classroom, can have their individual lessons optimized for their particular strengths and weaknesses.
Ben Powers is the headmaster of Eagle Hill-Southport, an independent day school in Connecticut for students with learning disabilities. Prior to joining the school in 2012, he served as headmaster of The Kildonan School. He is a passionate member of and advocate in the field of dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD and is on the board of directors of Headstrong Nation and Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities.
June is LGBTQ Pride Month. Despite the popular images of wealthy LGB celebrities, many queer and trans* people are low-income. Employment discrimination, lack of health insurance, homelessness, and other factors make LGBT people particularly vulnerable to the impact of economic inequality. Gay and lesbian families (especially the latter) are significantly more likely to be living below the poverty line than heterosexual married families, and children in gay and lesbian households are twice as likely to live in poverty as compared to children in homes with heterosexual parents. And given the legacy of racism in the U.S., the statistics are even worse for LGBT people of color. Other concerns include: trans justice and violence against LGBTQ youth.

The topic of surrogacy is emotionally and ethically controversial. Today, Michele Zavos, an attorney who practices family law in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia will provide an overview and time line in assisted reproductive technology issues. Ms. Zavos is a pioneer in creating legal protection for LGBT families.
"Until recently, stories in the popular press were about traditional surrogacy, where the surrogate is inseminated with sperm from the infertile woman’s husband, and the carrier is genetically linked to the child. Today, most couples who build their families through surrogacy choose gestational surrogacy, also known as gestational care. In gestational care, the intended mother or an egg donor provides the egg and the intended father or a sperm donor provides the sperm. The resulting embryo is transferred to the gestational carrier, who has no genetic connection to the child". RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association 2013
Michele Zavos is a partner in the Zavos Juncker Law Group, PLLC. She founded the first Maybe Baby group in the Washington metropolitan area in 1982.
Michele is a selected member of the National Family Law Advisory Council for the National Center for Lesbian Rights and an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys and of the American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton named her an “Angel in Adoption” in 2009. Michele has won many awards for her service to the LGBT community.
Michele and her law partner, Eva N. Juncker, were recently selected two of the top 25 divorce lawyers in Montgomery County by Bethesda Magazine. She was named Family Law Practitioner of the Year by the Bar Association of Montgomery County in 2013.
