Carrie Ann Rhodes on Thanksgiving traditions. Sharon Martin on holiday drama. Dr. Kathy McCoy on dealing with political division with loved ones. Family movie night. Thanksgiving Traditions (00:00) After a brief clip exploring the Thanksgiving traditions of student producers from across America, show regular Carrie Ann Rhodes joins Lisa to talk about Thanksgiving food tips, food safety, and the lost art of hospitality—how to create a gathering space in your home. Holiday Drama (50:12) The holidays are times when most of us look forward to homemade meals and casual visits with family. But sometimes the family drama that emerges during those events can be the most stressful part of the holidays. Sharon Martin joins us to discuss strategies for protecting your peace of mind when family members bring negative energy to your gatherings. Sharon Martin is an emotional wellness speaker, a writer, and a licensed psychotherapist based in San Jose. She has developed an online class called “Handling the Holidays.” Political Division and Loved Ones (1:08:04) With Thanksgiving this week, it’s inevitable that some family member will bring up something political we don’t agree with. When we disagree politically with a coworker or an acquaintance, we can politely decline to comment or put space between us, but what can we do when we disagree with a cousin, uncle, or even our spouse? We’ve invited author and psychotherapist Dr. Kathy McCoy to join us to give some advice before this week’s festivities begin. Kathy McCoy is an accomplished author, journalist, psychotherapist, and an expert on behavior and relationships. You can learn more about her on her website. Family Movie Night (1:25:47) Producer Rod Gustafson and Lisa talk about movies that helps us remember one of the most important aspects of Thanksgiving: gratitude. Movies discussed include Toy Story, Cars, How to Train Your Dragon, and Lion.
