There’s something exciting about doing something for the first time, and luckily I had another “first” yesterday. I was interviewed on The Jerry Doyle Show on The Talk Radio Network (the 6th largest syndicated talk radio show) We chatted about a topic I commented on earlier this week The Wall Street Journal – neediness in relationships. Jerry referenced Tuesday’s article “I’m OK. You’re Needy” by Bonds columnist Elizabeth Bernstein.
We also touched on the importance of self-care and stress and Jerry mentioned my forthcoming book “The Burnout Cure”. While this was my first interview with Jerry but I hope it won’t be my last! Jerry recently launched a new website Epic Times “Conservative News You Can Use” and I’ve been invited to be a featured contributor.

Clair Mellenthin, clinical director, joined Amanda Dickson on “A Woman’s View” to discuss the
deeper meaning of texting. Why do some people prefer to text instead of talk? It seems that some may prefer the added layer of distance that this method of communication allows for.
“It’s all about perception,” Clair Mellenthin, clinical director for Wasatch Family Therapy, explained. “Kids think, ‘Mom, if you call me, that’s going to take all my time. Just text me.’ When in reality, it’s about the same.”
“It may be dehumanizing our relationships,” Mellenthin opined. “It puts distance in our relationships. People break up. They get together. They do it all on text and on Facebook.”

Check out a national blogtalkradio interview I did on “wellness for the real world with Dr. Veronica Anderson”. This interview included several contributors from academicians, authors, family lawyers, therapists and male victims. We discuss the change in popular belief about violence and the increased awareness of males who are victims of violence. This was done in a way that does not diminish the seriousness of female victims, but increases the understanding and experiences of male victims. My specific segment focused primarily on types of violence and the more recent finding that situational couple violence (where both partners are violent with each other) leads to more injury than violence where there is only one perpetrator.
