#20 Curing A Condition Called Divorce Part 1 - Relationships With Dr. George Blair-West

On this episode, part 1 of 2, we are talking about a well known condition in our world that affects almost half of all adults and just as many children. It's a condition that causes as much emotional pain as the most distressing problems that humans can experience. Yet currently, there are no meaningful or widespread prevention strategies in place for it. That condition, if you haven't guessed already, is divorce - or the loss of a loving relationship in whatever form. The impact of divorce is far-reaching. Population studies tell us that around 80% of people who get divorced, 5 years later, are still as unhappy as they were before they got divorced! In part, this is because divorce brings its own set of ongoing problems, particularly when children are involved. But today, we are joined by a man on a mission to help parents and children prevent/deal with divorce, to become better parents and partners. He's a medical doctor, psychiatrist specialising in relationship therapy, and author of several books, his latest being The Way Of The Quest. He has a private practice in Indooroopilly, Brisbane, Australia where he has seen how much pain and heartache, especially in children, divorce causes and believes so much of it could have been prevented. Dr. George has a Ted Talk titled Preventing Divorce - Top 3 Life Hacks For Singles that you will find on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjQ98C_7iQ0 His new book The Way Of The Quest is also available for download here: https://www.amazon.com/Way-Quest-Dr-George-Blair-West/dp/0646576488 Listen in, subscribe now on itunes, and leave me a 5 star review to help the ratings and reach of the show.
