Ep 82: Managing Conflicts
Conflict is just a part of life. It really is a normal part of any healthy relationship. There's simply no way that two people, are going to agree on everything! Yet...so many individuals fear conflict, they try to avoid it. Then there are others, that appear to walk through life "just looking for trouble."    

We live in a very conflictual time. If you don't know how to manage, or often find yourself mismanaging conflict... you've likely discovered that it can cause great harm (e.g., trust compromised, communication suffers, distance sets in, etc.) in a relationship. Dr. Dodd states that, "It is my desire to help you learn, or be reminded of, that conflict managed in a healthy way (i.e., sensibly, efficiently, solution seeking, mutually respectful, and a scripturally sound manner) can provide real opportunity to strengthen the relationship between individuals.

Ep 81: Defiance and Opposition vs. Obedience

Ep 81: Defiance and Opposition vs. Obedience
Join Dr. Dodd as he looks at being defiant and oppositional, versus obedient... from both a scriptural and psychological perspective. He points out that being oppositional is "often demonstrated by getting easily annoyed, demands its own way, has feelings of resentment or anger, frequent arguments with others, deliberately annoying others, blames others for their own mistakes, and is spiteful." He states that, "obedience is a form of social influence that involves performing an action under the orders of an authority figure."   

Finally, Dr. Dodd discusses the dilemma of being defiant with God or submitting (being obedient) to His authority over our lives.

Ep 80: Being Honest with Yourself

Ep 80: Being Honest with Yourself
Dr. Dodd states: "I often hear the importance of being honest. I completely get it and agree! We all want to be around people that we can count on, people that are dependable, consistent, trustworthy, real, and of course...honest. But the idea of being honest with ourselves, somehow gets overlooked... really, not even thought about. The idea of doing the hard work of looking deep within ourselves and asking the hard questions regarding our dependability, trustworthiness, etc., somehow gets neglected."  

In this episode, Dr. Dodd talks about the criticalness of being "gut level" honest with yourself. We've all been taught from a very early age that "honesty is the best policy." That we should be, in all our dealings whether big or small...be honest. It's vital to be honest with others...but it's critical to be honest with yourself.

The hard reality is today's young adult lives in a very different world. And the "spill over" of all this on to the family, particularly parents, cannot be overstated. Join Dr. Dodd as he provides some suggestions/guidelines on how to parent your child, who is now an adult.

Ep 78: The Journey to Emotional Healing
A common question is, "Can you ever truly achieve emotional healing?" A very similar question is, "Can people really change?" Dr. Dodd states that, "I tell you that it is absolutely possible. It is my desire, to define what that healing "looks like and entails," as well as provide some practical suggestions on how to achieve and maintain it. Again, to heal emotionally is always possible. With time (it's going to whatever time it takes), a genuine "want to," the willingness to seek help, and God...it is very possible."
