Episode 4 | Communication - Part 2
Hosted by Meredith Shirey & Isaiah Vallejo-Juste
Produced by Rich Hackman

If you asked what the key to a good relationship was, most people would say communication. If prompted further, most would tell you that they are good communicators, but is that true? In Part 1, Isaiah, being a marital attorney, illustrated how you can make a divorce less painful when communication is beyond repair. In Part 2, Meredith, being a licensed psychotherapist, will explore the alternative of not leaving the relationship, but instead finding new ways to connect with your partner, improve communication, and manage conflict.

 In this episode we cover:

  • How do we fight? When communication turns into conflict
  • How to make arguments more productive
  • Bids for connection
  • The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse 
  • Taking breaks and creating boundaries
  • Getting on the same team with your partner
  • Self-awareness & emotional attunement
