The Divorce and Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.

Nationally recognized family law attorney, mediator and award-winning podcaster, Susan Guthrie is at it again! After guiding countless numbers of people through the perilous world of divorce—and speaking to a podcast audience of over 2.5 million listeners—she’s bringing you the “The Divorce and Beyond Podcast” to help you thrive in your life BEYOND divorce!

In this episode, Empowerment Coach, Shannon McGorry returns to talk with Susan Guthrie about what you can do to pump up the volume when you are "fed up with fine."

Change can be an easy choice when things are awful but what about when they are "fine?"  I mean, things are ok, there's nothing wrong really so it all just fine.  So why do we sometimes feel so unsettled and restless when things are fine?  Why do we feel that there should be more?

Shannon McGorry, the guest expert from the hugely popular Episode #127, "Avoiding the Void: Facing the Future and Thriving After Divorce" rejoins us to help you navigate your way out of "fine." Shannon uses a variety of techniques and tools, that she shares with you, to help you to define your values and principals and to help you to find "what lights you up" because that's what takes life from fine to fantastic!  If you are fed up with fine and suspect that there is more out there for you, this is the episode that is going to get you on your way!

Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, a/k/a The Divorce Doctor returns to the podcast for the third in the blockbuster series of episodes focused on mental health, divorce and trauma.  In this episode, Susan Guthrie and Dr. Elizabeth delve into the culture of toxic masculinity that has been pervasive over centuries in our world and explain the untold cost of these societal mores on men AND women and how we all can begin to change the paradigm.

“Man up.”  “Be a man.”  “Shake it off, there’s nothing to cry about.”  We have all heard, and perhaps even said or thought these phrases ourselves.  They seem innocuous enough but when you delve into the culture of what it means to be a man, the huge cost, in emotional and physical health to men becomes clear.  That cost carries over into the lives of women as the men we love are unable to express their emotions and suffer the health challenges that stem from society’s unwillingness to allow men to be vulnerable.  This episode was inspired by an email from listener, Mark Whorle (THANK YOU MARK!), who wrote in asking for guidance in finding emotional support and resources for divorce that are geared toward men, or are gender neutral.  This outreach from Mark exemplifies the culture of toxic masculinity that impacts women as well as men.  Toxic masculinity feeds the patriarchy – it is a vicious cycle that we all need to break.

Dr. Elizabeth and Susan explore the myriad ways that toxic masculinity pervade our lives and how it is manifested during divorce as well as how we each can start to change the conversation.  Start here, listen and be a part of the change!

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with psychotherapist, Cindy Rasicot, the author of the Best-Selling memoir, Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter's Spiritual Quest to Thailand, about her journey of physical, emotional and spiritual healing through her nuturing relationship with a Thai Buddhist nun and mentor.  Cindy's years long journey involves many lessons that will resonate with those going through divorce or any tranformative change, as she navigates physcial injury and healing, loss and pain and even her own gray divorce.  Cindy's path to healing with the guidance of Venerable Dammananda Bhikkhuni reminds us all that a truly open heart is the door to faith, forgiveness and love.  For anyone and everyone on the human journey through life, this is an episode that will bring hope to all with a focus on:

  • Change and the feeling of loss that can accompany that change;
  • The propensity of the mind to dwell on loss causing us to experience that loss over and over again; and
  • The realization that nothing is permanent and that happiness is sometimes in how you look at things.

Much as Elizabeth Gilbert's, Eat, Pray, Love, captured the collective conscious and the search for love that is common to all, Cindy Rasicot's, Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter's Spiritual Quest to Thailand, touches on what is human in us all.  Listen to the episode, read the book and find connection and hope.

More About This Week's Special GuestCindy Rasicot is a writer and retired psychotherapist.  Author of Finding Venerable Mother: A Daughter’s Spiritual Quest to Thailand, her book is a #1 best seller in spirituality on Amazon and an International Book Awards finalist.  

Finding_Venerable_Mother6wnqv.jpg

Cindy’s life has been a spiritual journey that took on new dimensions when she and her family moved to Bangkok, Thailand for three years. There, she met her spiritual teacher, Venerable Dhammananda Bhikkhuni, an encounter that opened her heart and changed her forever. This deepening relationship led to writing her debut memoir which chronicles her adventures along the spiritual path. She is currently writing her second book about her spiritual teacher.

In this episode, Susan Guthrie is joined by Leading Divorce Attorney and Best-Selling Author (and Susan's Work BFF!), Gabrielle Hartley, to talk about the BEST THING to happen to Divorce in ages:  Online Divorce Mediation.

With the advent of Covid, many court systems around the country (and the world) are effectively closed or operating only on an emergency basis, and in most cases, they don't consider your divorce an emergency!  This can affect divorcing couples in many ways; if they are thinking of divorce, they often can't file and even when they do, they can't get into court.  For ongoing cases, couples can't get court dates for hearings or trials so are on indefinite hold, and for those who are done but need help due to changes that have occured, as they have for so many during Covid with job loss and health issues, they also struggle to get a court date.  Even as some courts open for limited business, the backlog of cases that has been building for months, will take years, if not decades, to subside.  It's just one long, never-ending DIVORCE LIMBO!

So what is a couple to do?  One of the best (and only) options for many is online divorce mediation and it's a great option!  Both Susan and Gabrielle have been conducting mediations online with couples for years, long before Covid made the practice popular.  There are many reasons, beyond social distancing and safety, that make online mediation particularly well-suited for divorce cases.  This conversation between two of the top online divorce mediators in the country will enlighten you and show you how you can mediate online and move through your divorce and BEYOND!

Some MORE Highlights from the Episode:

  • Find out what the mediation process looks like online.
  • Hear why not having to sit in the same room with your spouse can be so helpful to the process.
  • Discover why online mediation is often even faster and easier than in-person mediation.
  • Learn about Gabrielle's innovative online mediation blitz, her Positive Divorce approach and how you can learn to be Better Apart with her book and program!

There are just so many benefits to mediating your divorce online, listen to this episode and get your life out of LIMBO!

For More Information on This Week's Special Guest:  Gabrielle Hartley Esq., is a leading divorce attorney, online mediator and creator of The Better Apart Method.  She's known for keeping 99% of her cases at the negotiation table and out of the courtroom. Her Book, Better Apart; The Radically Positive Way to Separate was given a glowing endorsement from Gwyneth Paltrow, and People Magazine.  Gabrielle is a sought after divorce expert in the media and has been quoted in the New York TImes, Psychology Today, Vice, Thrive Global, and Yoga Journal to name a few.  PLUS she's a regular guest on NBC talking about all things related to what Gabrielle terms, The Positive Divorce Movement.

In this episode, Parenting Expert, Christina McGhee returns to talk with Susan Guthrie about all of the things that parents need to consider in order to create a parenting plan that truly works for the children.  

So often when parents sit down to figure out the parenting plan they pull out a calendar and start carving up the time with the kids as if it were another commodity like the bank accounts and debts.  In fact, although the amount of time that children spend with each parent needs to be "equitable" it doesn't need to be 50/50.  In fact, 50/50 rarely actually does (or should) exist.  Find out what the most important considerations actually are for parents who are setting up a time-sharing plan with their children and what will make it successful for the kids.

LISTENER QUESTION:  Christina starts the episode by answering the following question from listener, Kim Cuizon about how conflict between parents affects the kids:  "How about when parents don't talk at all but at the same time there are no conflicts?  They're not close enough as friends but are civil during drop offs.  Will this kind of apathetic relationship have lasting effects on the kids?"  GREAT QUESTION AND A VERY COMMON PHENOMENA!  What to know the answer?  Listen in! 

(If you have a question for Christina, send and email to divorceandbeyondpod@gmail.com and you might hear your question answered on a future episode!)

Some MORE Highlights from the Episode:

  • How important is being fair in creating a successful parenting plan for kids?
  • What is the two-home concept and how can parents support it?
  • Learn how important it is properly message parenting time to your kids.
  • Discover why your parenting plan will likely change over time.
  • Hear why you should always follow up a verbal agreement with a quick text or email.

And much more so that you can find just the right plan FOR YOUR KIDS!

***SPECIAL SERIES OF EPISODES on DIVORCE AND PARENTING!  Susan is thrilled to have Christina McGhee returning monthly to touch on several of the hot topics in parenting and divorce!  We will be discussing how to co-parent with a high conflict ex, how to handle the holidays and MUCH MORE so stay tuned.  CHRISTINA WILL ALSO ANSWER MORE QUESTIONS SENT IN BY LISTENERS SO SEND AN EMAIL TO divorceandbeyodpod@gmail.com  or by DM to @divorceandbeyond on Instagram with your question and hear the answer on a future episode!***

For More Information on This Week's Special Guest:  Christina McGhee  is a speaker and divorce parenting expert who believes divorce doesn't have to equal devastation for families. While splitting up is undeniably hard, with the right kind of information and support, she thinks parents can be children's absolute best resource as life changes.  

As a coach with 20+ years of experience, Christina is dedicated to providing parents with the tools and practical support they need to get it right for their kids. She is also the author of the highly acclaimed book, Parenting Apart: How separated and divorced parents can raise happy and secure kids.

As a child of divorce and as a bonus mom (aka step-mom), Christina gets plenty of opportunities to practice what she preaches.  Together she and her husband have four “adultish” children (2 bonus, 2 bio), an ever-growing community of rescue dogs/cats, and an obscene number of chickens.

Split is a deeply personal film made in collaboration with children aged 6-12, exploring the often frightening and always life altering separation of their parents.

Split gives us the children's perspective on divorce... no adults, no experts… just kids speaking the powerful truth of what is on their minds and in their hearts. Their wisdom, candor, and humor will give courage to other children, and encourage parents to make better choices as they move through divorce.

In this episode Susan Guthrie speaks with Wendy Dolin, the Founder of MISSD, about the potentially fatal drug reaction known as akathisia and how speaking to Wendy recently saved Susan when she had her own near miss.  This is truly information that may save your life or the life of someone you love and Wendy's journey beyond the heartbreak of losing her beloved husband and how she took that journey to turn it into a mission to create akithisia awareness around the globe!

That day ten years ago started much as any other and Wendy Dolin had no idea that when her husband Stewart went off to work that day he would never return home again.  The tragedy that befell her husband and family that day took Wendy on a journey through the world of drug trials, ground-breaking litigation and world-wide advocacy to found MISSD (The Medication-Induced Suicide Prevention and Education Foundation in Memory of Stewart Dolin), dedicated to creating awareness around akathisia and helping us to be educated consumers of prescription and over the counter drugs.

What is akathisia?   Akathisia is a disorder induced as a side effect of medications (including, but not limited to, SSRI's and antipsychotics), which can cause a person such intense inner restlessness that the sufferer is driven to violence and/or suicide.  There are many permutations of akathisia but the number one thing to take away from this episode?  Anytime you start, stop or change the dosage of a medication, BE AWARE!  This is when you are most vulnerable for akathisia or other negative effects of medication.  MISSD is not anti-medication but is pro-information so be sure to listen and be informed today!

Some Highlights the Episode:

  • Find out some of the medications can lead to akathisia - many of them are probably in your medicine cabinet right now!
  • Learn what symptoms to look for that might indicate you need to get some help.
  • Hear how Wendy was inspired to take her tragedy and turn it into advocacy by founding MISSD.
  • Discover the poignant meaning behind the acronym for MISSD.
  • Find out why members of the military may be even more at risk.
  • Hear why the information in this episode is so on point for the COVID vaccine we are all waiting for and why we need to be concerned.

Wendy and her mission with MISSD are a truly inspirational story of life BEYOND tragedy so listen to this episode today!

FOR AN EXTENDED VERSION OF MY INTERVIEW WITH WENDY, GO TO THE DIVORCE & BEYOND PODCAST YOUTUBE CHANNEL WHERE WE CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION INCLUDING:

  • WENDY'S GROUND-BREAKING LEGAL FIGHT WITH THE DRUG COMPANIES
  • WHAT SHE LEARNED ABOUT DRUG TRIALS THAT WE ALL NEED TO KNOW, AND
  • FOR THOSE REBUILDING THEIR LIVES AFTER DIVORCE, HOW WENDY FOUND HER STRENGTH TO THRIVE AFTER TRAGEDY.

More information about Wendy Dolin and MISSD: 

MISSD (The Medication-Induced Suicide Prevention and Education Foundation in Memory of Stewart Dolin) is a unique 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to honoring the memory of Stewart and other victims of akathisia by raising awareness and educating the public about the dangers of akathisia. MISSD aims to ensure that people suffering from akathisia's symptoms are accurately diagnosed so that needless deaths are prevented. A website, the creation of educational materials and support of conferences will help to raise awareness and knowledge of akathisia and medication-induced suicides. Again, we feel it's important to note that we are not anti-drug, and recognize that prescription drugs can be positive and life-saving for many individuals. We are for truth in disclosure, honesty in reporting and legitimate drug trials.

More About this Week's Special Guest:  Michelle Dempsey-Multack is a writer, mom, coach, speaker, and genuine girl power enthusiast. Michelle attended American University as a Journalism major, graduated Hofstra University’s Communications program with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, and then earned a Double Masters Degree in Education from Adelphi University.

Originally from New York, Michelle grew up fascinated by the hustle and bustle of New York City. She was aching to “make it” as something, anything, ever since 9th grade.

“I remember walking into my first day of high school, and one of my teachers announcing “Whoa, this one is powerful – we’re going to have to watch out for her,” Michelle recalls. That sentence has always stuck with her and has motivated her to always keep moving, harder and faster, toward her dreams.

Michelle moved to Miami in her late 20’s where the “second part of her life” began. She married her daughter’s father and they brought beautiful Bella into the world. Years later, Michelle remarried her now-husband Spencer, and they live in North Miami Beach where they are raising their beautiful blended family, sneaking in as many ski trips as possible, going to every concert they can, and truly enjoying this new phase of their lives.
