Episode 23: When Communication Breaks Down

Jennifer gives listeners an update on her dog, Enki (and thanks everyone for their messages of support).  Angela discusses an article on the challenges of living in a triad relationship for the newswire segment.  Today, we are joined by Carey Heartborne who is a private mediator that specializes in Transformative Mediation (and who also happens to be non-mongamous) who brings us the unique perspective of how to view communication when it’s not going well.  It was an amazing conversation.

Here are some other resources mentioned on the show:

Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B Rosenberg, PhD

  1. I’m a grateful listener since the first episode and wanted to thank you especially for this episode that really helped me through a hard confused-and-jealous-poly-noob-weekend. Thanks a lot, especially for your honesty about yourselves and your vulnerabilities.
