DOING SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR CONFLICT

Several years ago I began asking friends, family members, colleagues and clients what stops them from trying different things to be able to improve how they manage conflict. Of course, their answers varied.

TELLING TALES OUT OF SCHOOL

I don’t recall the first time I heard the expression “telling tales out of school”. When I searched for the meaning of this expression, I discovered this specific statement is the oldest of three expressions of the same ilk (“talking out of school” and “speaking out of school”). The same source says, “The usual meaning is, don’t gossip indiscreetly or reveal private matters, secrets or confidences”, which is likely…

After graduation thoughts

I got a great education at the Werner Institute. I felt on fire with knowledge throughout the program and now I go equipped with my new degree (and my old degree and experience) out into the world to search for meaningful work. This of course if no small task. I haven't written any books or articles, or won any great awards but I did graduate with a 4.0 and my professors nominated me for a prestigious national honor society into which I was inducted as a lifetime member.

In…

PICK YOUR BATTLES

You have likely heard the expression “pick your battles” and know the gist of its meaning. I have said this at times to friends and colleagues who find themselves in a number of disagreements about a number of matters – each appear to have different intensities and weights of importance to them.

Out of curiosity I looked up the meaning. According to this source,…

Parental Mental Illness and Reunification

            The other night I happened upon an old movie starring Cheryl Ladd and the late Robert Ulrich. In the movie, Cheryl Ladd’s character played an abusive mother. The movie did a good job of highlighting the issues of abuse and neglect within families. It also showed the challenges families with little money face in trying to participate in counseling in order to work through these serious family issues. Throughout the years, I have either had a client become involved in a child…
