October is Domestic Violence Action Month and our guests from LifeWire will discuss how they have been action oriented on this topic for 34 years.
Maria Williams, the Program Director and Ward Urion, the Social Change Manager share with us the many programs offered to survivors of domestic violence as well as programs designed to prevent domestic violence in the first place; such as Coaching Boys Into Men, which equips coaches with tools to help their young athletes build respectful, non-violent relationships. LifeWire operates a 24 Hour Help Line at 1-800-827/8840 Learn more about their organization and programs online at www.lifewire.org
In our second half its Sunday Morning Magazine with Kate Daniels;
October is ADHD Awareness month. Dr. Edward (Ned) Hallowell is an expert on the subject of ADHD, having dedicated more than 3 decades of his life and career to the understanding of this condition. In fact he deals with it himself. It affects men and women equally. Dr. Hallowell is a child and adult psychiatrist in New York, and a best-selling author on the subject. We’re fortunate in having a clinic in this area that focuses on individualized treatment, the Hallowell Todaro Center.
