October 6, 2021
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews Author Jayson Gaddis MA. Conflicts in our closest relationships are scary because so much is at stake. If the conflict doesn't go well, we could lose our marriage, our family, or our job, all of which are connected to our security and survival, so we do just about anything not to lose those relationships, including avoiding conflict, betraying ourselves, or becoming dishonest. The problem is, unresolved conflict affects every single aspect of our lives. Through funny personal stories, uncomfortable examples, and effective tools and skills, Jayson Gaddis reveals the origins of conflict styles, shares how to work through difficult conversations instead of running away from them, and explains why the fastest way to indestructible relationships is to become good at working through conflict, together. His method upgrades the old, tired, and static conflict resolution approaches and offers a street-level, user-friendly road map on exactly how to work through conflict with the people you care about most. He is a sought-after relationship coach, as well as the host of the successful Relationship School podcast.Kathryn also interviews Author Faith Elicia. Society’s glorification of restrictive eating behaviors has led to sobering statistics: 9 percent of the U.S. population will have an eating disorder in their lifetime, and the affliction spans gender, race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic groups. Eating disorders are among the deadliest of mental illnesses — second only to opioid overdose. Those caught in the downward spiral of continually obsessing about food, weight, and body image need support to free themselves from this dangerous illness. Those not suffering from an eating disorder believe that saying “No!” to self-destructive behaviors should be a no-brainer. But for those seeking recovery, it’s a daily struggle. There’s no single strategy or silver bullet. Instead, it’s a journey of fits and starts. In this workbook we follow Author Faith Elicia’s recovery journey in an interactive format that emphasizes a “we” approach and provides strategies, prompts, and tools for healing and positive change.
