What do faculty do during the summer? Sometimes they take a vacation. Sometimes they appear of KPFA's Talk-It-Out radio.

On Sunday, July 22, Dr. Meg Jordan was the guest of host Nancy Kahn to discuss "You Cannot Heal What You Cannot Feel: The Benefits of Nonviolent Communication Across Differences in Health and Wellness."

Dr. Jordan is a world-traveled medical anthropologist, holistic RN, educator, and journalist specializing in integrative health and behavioral medicine. She realized that good medicine is the one that works for the person, no matter if it's alternative, complementary, or conventional. Dr. Jordan incorporated the practices of NVC Across Differences into the health and wellness coaching programs at CIIS, recognizing that the healing process requires the ability to transform judgments and self-judgments into universal human needs/core values. Dr. Jordan's work as a behavioral medicine specialist helps people adjust their immediate environments as well as their inner psycho-emotional terrain to make lasting, positive changes.

We hope you will listen to the show in the KPFA archives.
