What is your Next Chapter?

Feb 28, 2018

Show Notes

Today I’d like to chat with you, and our producer Paul, about a subject that is most dear to me. Bottom line it’s about the positive impact each of us can make on the lives of other people: from the ones we love the most to just about anyone we engage with in a meaningful conversation.

As I have stated often, I have concluded that my single most important goal in life to help people feel better about themselves. It’s really not all that difficult, requiring only that you, in some way, communicate to them that they are important to you

Obviously there are myriad ways to do so but I would like to focus today on one thing, the Art of a Caring Conversation. Although the word “conversation” implies a two-way interaction is it actually too often a one-way conversation help be two people each with their own agenda and each with their own things they want to talk abou

I have operated for more than 3 decades with the belief I learned from a psychologist that people have 3 primary innate needs: To be heard, to be accepted (by some group that we view as important), and to be cared for or cared about. When those are met we discover a sense of well-being and deep personal satisfaction.

Today I’d like to focus on that first need: to be heard. So today I want to talk about the art of listening and suggest 3 traits that make for an excellent listener.

They are simple: Kindness, empathy, and curiosity.

Show Notes

Today is Part II of a series I began last week on the disturbing issue of Erasing Family. An amazing 22 million parents in the United States alone find themselves in the middle of this tragic situation.

My guest today, is Ginger Gentile who is an expert in this field. Ginger is an award–winning filmmaker who grew up in New York and graduated from Columbia University.

Ginger is the co-director of a new documentary film on this subject titled, Erasing Family, which depicts the stories of a disturbing number of children and parents that are “erased” from their families due to divorce and to the current, often-ineffective child custody laws.

As I mentioned last week, these may be two of the most important shows we’ve done on the Next Chapter with Charlie.

You can reach Ginger at http://www.erasingfamily.org

Or @erasing family on Twitter or Instagram

Show Notes  

We have a most fascinating and disturbing show today on what is becoming an almost epidemic subject. It is called Erasing Families. Now, because of the privacy and confidentiality of the information we will be sharing with my very special guest, we going to give her a pseudonym of Mom.

Our subject of Erasing Families has been referred to in psychiatry as Parental Alienation, although new designations are forthcoming.

"Parental Alienation" has been known as a disorder that arises primarily in the context of brutal and hateful child custody disputes. It is the manifestation of one parent’s highly influential campaign to denigrate the other parent, with no genuine justification other than revenge. The result is that the denigrated parent is totally erased from the lives of their children. In many cases the children absolutely refuse any connection whatsoever with that parent.

My guest today, Mom, has personally experienced the tragedies of being on the rejected end of this situation. I want to talk with her about how this psychosis comes about and the problems parents experience while dealing with this issue.

Next week we will continue the subject with film producer, Ginger Gentile, who will offer more definition and hope for recovery from the voices of the children. These may be two of our most important shows on the Next Chapter with Charlie.

Be sure to tune in for Part II next week!

Show Notes Terry Hershey: #61 Who Owns You? 

My guest today is our good friend, Terry Hershey. If you’re a frequent listener of the show then you’re familiar with Terry, who is a regular guest. Terry is a prolific writer, conference keynote speaker, renowned landscape architect, and spiritual advisor.

Today, I want to chat with Terry about how to take possession of your own life. We, all, too frequently give others permission to have some control over certain aspects of our lives. And we wind up frustrated, overwhelmed and often depressed.

This is our subject for the day. Who Owns You?
