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.

Nina has worked with many cultures in her decades of mediation work. She will share concepts such as the different ways of looking at fairness, how cultures respond to conflict and why they have dissimilar desires as to their goals and outcomes, how people express the same emotion in a variety of ways, and why it is a common mistake to "pretend to be in someone else's shoes". This very practical 30 minutes will help you understand some of the diversity across cultures that can create problems and explore positive steps in working through the conflict.

To break through the barriers and learn how to coexist with someone so different from yourself, we suggest you take this challenge. Sit down with someone you might find difficult to listen to...maybe someone of a different faith or cultural background and engage them in a conversation with the intent of being curious. This is not about a debate.

All based on love. Joyce has been in Ministry close to 30 years, reaching out to the homeless, elderly, disabled, poor and challenged. She also has a Ranch Vision, and is hoping that it will come into fruition very soon. She embraces all positive aspects of life. On her radio show, "Mama Joyce's Messages Of Hope," on the Blog Talk Radio Network, her mantra is Compassion. She always says, "We are to love one another, help each other and learn to forgive. We leave the judging part to God. We are to share unconditional love with others, offer a hand up, and give an ear to listen and even become a friend. My hope is that YOU can become someone who adds much love to our world one person at a time, one day at a time. Joyce comes from an abused background at the age of 5 she was molested by a neighbor. At home, her mother performed unspeakable emotional and mental abuses on her, as well as physical beatings. One day she threw out all of Joyce's clothes except for one outfit that she had to wear over and over again. This resulted in more abuse and bullying from students at school because she was homely and overweight and was treated as an outcast. Someone even tried to murder her 3 different times. As she got older, it only got worse: drugs, rape, pregnancy and auto accident which killed her baby. Another murder attempt, and a gang rape caused her to attempt suicide. Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and hear Joyce's amazing and miraculous story of transformation and deliverance which came about through tragedy. Dave Nassaney is the author of numerous articles and books, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: The Caregiver's Caregiver, Avoiding Burnout.

Randy Cooper has had many jobs and careers, ranging from lumberjack in the woods of the Pacific Northwest to serving as a special education teacher, from an operator at a Westinghouse plant to a developer and teacher of the Total Quality Management program at two of their facilities. As an artist, he credits his attention to detail to this latter experience at Westinghouse. Randy's mother was a master carver of birds and gunstocks, and one of his sisters is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and author. It wasn’t until Randy was nearly 50 that he discovered his own penchant for art. His first experience with art education was taking a 6-week course with sculptor Wren Prather-Stroud. He also attended a week-long course with Tuck Langland at the Scottsdale Artists' School. After working successfully in clays, artificial stone, and bronzes, Randy discovered wire mesh, which soon became his medium. He began creating intriguing and magical sculptures in wire mesh and has developed all of the techniques that he uses in making his “Shadow Sculptures” on his own. These are forms created in wire screen that cast lovely shadows on the wall when lit with a light source. Indeed, sometimes the shadows seem to show more detail than the original sculpture and instill a feeling of magic into the creation. These “Shadow Sculptures” have been sweeping the United States and the world for the past few years, highlighting many private collections throughout the world, and Randy Cooper has become a major force among America's contemporary artists. Randy works as a full-time sculptor and lives in New Mexico with his wife, Susan, a former environmental engineer who is now a writer and an artist who has worked primarily in pastels, oils, and acrylics.

For some of us the experience of being in conflict is daunting! We have learned through our families of origin, friends, teachers, and other sources how to manage our interpersonal disputes, including trial and error which are often our main teachers. The quest for engaging more effectively in conflict commonly begins when we realize our usual approaches are no longer working. Or, we are faced with situations that overwhelm us - or get us into trouble. In this show, Cinnie Noble will discuss her view of the meaning of conflict mastery - also referred to as conflict intelligence - and what helps optimize the quest to get there.

What do you do when your parent needs care, but doesn't deserve it? Christopher was a caregiver to his mom before she died of cancer. He really didn't WANT to take care of her, but he felt that he HAD to take care of her, even though she didn't really take care of him as a child and teenager very well. With his father nowhere in sight, his mother nearly gave him up for adoption. Instead, she struggled to provide a life for him while battling multiple psychiatric disorders. Because of her struggle to keep a job, he went from being an average 13-year-old kid living in a 4-bedroom house to being a homeless 7th-grade-dropout, living in the family station wagon — and, if that wasn’t enough, he had to share it with 18 cats and 2 dogs! As a result of his mother’s limitations, Christopher constantly endured mental and physical abuse throughout most of his young life. For the next four agonizing years, Christopher suffered through — and survived — many painful experiences, which ultimately made him the man he is today! After deciding he wasn’t going to be a victim of his circumstances anymore,Christopher changed the course of his life. He overhauled his belief system and seriously got down to business. As a result, he proudly earned a Master’s Degree in Organizational Management, purchased two houses, married his love, and started his professional speaking and training career (Kickass Guiide to Life).
