Show Notes

Mary Gordon MA, LAADC, ICAADC shares her experiences as Director of The Betty Ford Center family program (among other things) in this discussion with Allen and Thom in the first week of 2021. Mary shares her thoughts on the importance of communication across America’s political divide to heal some of the damage caused by our extreme polarization. Mary describes some of the group experiences with retreats for women she and her colleague, Peggy McGillicuddy (also Mary’s daughter) facilitate as examples of discovering the power of self-respect and how some of these very same experiences might hold keys for a broader, national healing. As 2021 begins, we join with our listeners in grieving what has been lost in 2020 while also expressing gratitude for what has been created.
