Voices In The Family

July 2009


Listen to the mp3

Over 2 million Americans get married every year, and promise their partner to stay with them for the rest of their lives. Yet roughly fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. Why do so many of them fail? Is it lack of communication or growing pains? And what can be done to build stronger, more loving relationships to keep a marriage alive? Join Dr. Dan Gottlieb on the next Voices in the Family when he talks with family therapist, B. Janet Hibbs. She says that fairness can be the key to solving problems and making marriages last. Dr. Hibbs is a psychotherapist in private practice in Philadelphia and author of Try to See it My Way. For more information on Dr. Hibbs, visit www.drbhibbs.com or go to www.trytoseeitmyway.com.

Too heavy, too unorganized, too slow, too lazy. Many of us have an ongoing commentary in our heads evaluating our performance. But, at what point does self-scrutiny become self-destructive? Join Dr. Dan Gottlieb and his guest, Dr. Molly Layton, for the next Voices in the Family when we'll discuss self-judgment. Layton is a psychologist in private practice in Philadelphia.

Join the conversation on Twitter (@Voicesinthefam), Facebook or email us at voices@whyy.org. Are you aware of your own self-judging? How has it impacted your life? Does self-judgment become contagious? Or maybe your self-judgmental thoughts have been motivating?

Serani is a psychologist and psychoanalyst who has worked as a technical advisor for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She has long been dealing with the stigma of mental illness in the media.

Power is the director of the Center for Management of ADHD at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Silverman is a school psychologist and the author of School Success with ADHD.
