Criticism in Families
Parents can be full of helpful advice, yet it can get heard by adolescents as criticism. Listen to Gabe, Annette and Lucy for some insights into how we develop the way we hear words and how intention and reception can be very different. This two part series is an incredible opportunity to consider the impact of the way we communicate in relationships, in our families. Gabrielle Caplice, Annette Baker and Lucy Dahill consider what criticism looks, sounds and feels like and how that plays out for children, teens and adults alike.
Self-Care in Health-Care
Our nurses around the world are on the front line in a workplace we have, perhaps, taken for granted for too long. We applaud them, sometimes in the streets, recently openly around the globe. Yet, have we trained them to be able to self-care to the level that is needed to be able to sustain the level of work that is now called for to keep them healthy and well in times of long hours and high stress at work? Listen to two nurses, Shushila and Bianca, who have walked this path, burnt out and then re-trained themselves to be able to share a different way of supporting themselves to support others. Joining them are two mental health care workers Gabrielle Caplice and Annette Baker who are the support service for a number of front-line nurses and speak from what many of the nurses they support have shared with them, and have offered to be shared with many more, so we can support each other more truly.
We can only truly honour our nurses
The Scourge of Shame
How much does shame influence the decisions we make and the behaviours we have taken as our normal? Jean Gamble talks us through shame and regret and teases out the different types of shame - toxic, functional and vicarious shame. What if there is a way to re-frame our thinking? Get snug as a bug in a rug and perhaps a pen and paper - you may want to take notes!
The Juggle of Study and Life
The show today is an up close and personal with study – the stress, the anxiety, the need – and perhaps most importantly, the why. A fundamental question has to be why are we studying and who are we studying for? If we have a family or are studying and working full or part time there are challenges inherent in juggling those commitments and responsibilities. There is a level of support we need to bring to ourselves in order to offer the space and perspective to work effectively without overriding the communication from our bodies and making ourselves sick. There is nothing intelligent about choosing dysfunctional behaviours! Join Lucy as she shares some of the things she learnt the hard way!
The debilitating scourge of fear
My guests today are Annette Baker and Gabrielle Caplice and together we look at how fear has become part of the fabric of our upbringing and means we struggle to open ourselves up in relationship. We look at what the impact of that might be and how we can support ourselves and each other to be ok with making mistakes and speaking up in life.
Pain is debilitating, it affects 1 in 5 Australian adults and gets more prevalent as we get older... increasing to 1 in 3 adults over the age of 65. So this show is a must for anyone working with chronic pain who wants to consider how they can support themselves in their day to day. Physiotherapist Kate Greenaway and Psychotherapist Jean Gamble rock the airwaves with some very practical advice from their own experiences and from their years of practice working with clients experiencing chronic pain.
Robyn Jones, Tony Sambell and Stephen Gammack were my guests this week to talk about toxic masculinity. What was clear by the end of this show is this is a conversation that goes beyond gender and is about the small things we brush over, the small elements of abuse we ignore till they become normalised and accept till we have an 'extreme' case which ends up being front page news. All too often it them becomes a 'gender' issue with two sides drawn and no true way forward. There has to be a better and more loving way to be with each other.
I feel very honoured to have been able to facilitate this show.
The Abuse We Take As Our Normal
Where does abuse come from? Is it always someone else's problem or are there parts of our own lives that could be contributing to the global picture because we are taking a level of normal that is not normal at all and yet we are not calling it out for fear of standing out?
This episode is a bit of soul searching and asks us all to consider the impact of what we did and what we do.
Gay Relationships and Same Sex Marriage
Same-sex couples can now marry - yes, it was voted on by the Australian people, it was voted on by our parliament - both houses and the majority have said a thumbs up to #loveislove. But what is the journey to get there? What about those who didn't vote yes? Gabrielle Caplice and Annette Baker join me in the studio to share what their young lives were like and how it felt for the validity of relationships like theirs to be the subject of nationwide discussion. This is an up close and personal interview which will be a wonderful support to anyone who is open to bringing more understanding to loving relationships. They share what it feels like to not fit 'the picture' of what we are brought up to believe a relationship is supposed to look like.
