Over the last 8 years, we have produced 310 podcasts with experts from all over the world. Each month we will feature one of these programs in our “The Best of the Past” episodes.
In this inaugural show, Pattie Porter connects with the audience by sharing her story of growing up in a high conflict family, and this led eventually to her work as a conflict management expert. Pattie sets the stage for future shows including the idea of giving fieldwork assignments.
We invite you to listen to our program here.
