Parent Effectiveness Training with Judy Pardo - Reboot Your Kids Recast 006

While the Reboot Your Kids website lives on, it no longer hosts the podcasts I recorded with Kevin Geary last year. For posterity's sake, I'm putting those shows into the Choice Conversations feed.

In this episode, Kevin and I welcome Judy Pardo on the show. Judy is a certified Parent Effectiveness Training instructor and a psychologist in private practice for over 20 years. Judy, Kevin, and I discuss:


The Behavior Window
Active and Passive Listening
Using I-Messages for Healthier Communication
No-Lose Conflict Resolution
How Power and Influence Are Negatively Correlated
And much more…

NVC, the Trivium, and Mind Control with Walter Hendricks

I was recently invited to call into the show Solvinur Event on UCY.TV. The host of the show, Walter Hendricks, was skeptical that Non-violent Communication (NVC) was a form of mind conotrol known as Neuro-linguistic programming. I provided an introduction to NVC, talked about its relationship to the trivium, and answered a number of NVC-related questions.

There were four different people on the show, each going in varying directions, so it was difficult to address each concern raised as thoroughly and succinctly as I would have liked. Having said that, I still found value in the conversation.

Check out the Solvinur Event:

Donald Trump, Fascism, and Racism with Jeffrey Tucker

Jeffrey Tucker joins me for a discussion about Donald Trump.  Is Trump a fascist?  Why is "The Donald" so popular?  Is racism rampant in America?  Does Hillary Clinton stand a chance against Trump?  What does Jeffrey think of Stefan Molyneux’s support for Trump?  Why is a corrupt politician a good thing?  Is a demoralized Obama the perfect president?  What does Rand Paul have against Libertarians?

We cover all of this and more in this interesting and entertaining discussion!

Here is Jeffrey’s brilliant News Week article that was discussed on the show:

Complete Liberty Inside Out with Wes Bertrand

Wes Bertrand is back to discuss his wonderful new book Complete Liberty Inside Out: Honoring Yourself and Others for Optimal Enrichment.  We take a hard look at not only the philosophy of liberty, which has been thoroughly covered by those who have come before us, but also the psychology of liberty, which has been not so much.  How does culture damage our minds, lessening our lives?  Religion, school, and the family are systems of domination, not unlike the state?  Sacrifice isn't a virtue?  What are the four stages of liberty?  Can this book build a bridge between the liberty community and the Non-Violent Communication community, two groups which each have half of it right?  We cover all this and more during this enlightening and entertaining discussion!

 

Get the book here:  http://completeliberty.com/pdf_and_ebook_downloads.html
