  3. Changing Behavior - Immediately Transform Your Relationships with Easy to Learn, Proven Communication Skills is written for all individuals, from all walks of life, so they may experience more fulfilling, longer lasting relationships. Hospital study tested since 1980. The information in Changing Behavior was developed and clinically researched for over 35 years by relationships expert, Dr. Georgianna Donadio, in partnership with the National Institute of Whole Health (NIWH). Originally created for healthcare and medical professionals to improve their communication, behavior and relationships with their patients, now, these same skills are available for the first time to anyone who desires to improve their current relationships and enhance their overall health and happiness. Changing Behavior provides immediately applicable, proven communication skills for achieving sustainable changes. It’s a fact - lack of effective communication is a leading cause of divorce, the breakdown of relationships between parents and children, as well as between employees and their employers. There is no doubt that communication in all types of relationships can make or break them, but changing how we relate to one another is easier said than done. This is because of inherited or past communication patterns that can quickly lead to hurt feelings or emotional disconnection. What’s more, most people don’t have the knowledge, skills or the time to invest in changing how they behave. Lisa is a perfect example. A 34-year-old divorced professional, who experienced one disappointing relationship after another. While successful in her career, she was frustrated and discouraged about her relationships, including those with her family. She discussed these feelings with her best friend, a nurse who attended a Changing Behavior workshop where she worked. The nurse shared the book with Lisa, who was skeptical that some simple communication skills might help change her relationship problems. A short time after reading the book, Lisa decided to apply the steps outlined in the book. She was surprised that applying the 12 Steps of Pure Presence led her to discover communication issues that had been causing conflicts in her relationships over the years. By applying the simple, powerful 12 steps, Lisa began to experience better connections and intimacy with others, most noticeably with her family. Lisa told her friend that “I feel more hopeful now, because I understand the skills to create better relationships.” The Readers Learn Why we behave the way we do How the relationships in our life impact our overall health Strategies for creating the relationships we want Simple yet potent ways to be a better partner, parent, friend or co-worker How to communicate more effectively through Pure Presence Transformative listening skills How to utilize appropriate body posture and visual communication 12 steps for meaningful and effective communication About the Author - Georgianna Donadio, MSc, DC, PhD Relationships expert, best-selling author and media personality who helps people get more out of life using effective communication skills for over 30 years, Dr. Georgianna Donadio has been a pioneer in the field of behavioral health, working with healthcare professionals and patients to change behaviors that lead to improved health. For the first time, her pioneering work is the foundation for the newly published book Changing Behavior: Immediately Transform Your Relationships with Easy-to-Learn, Proven Communication Skills. As a sought-after Integrative Health Practitioner, behavioral health and relationships expert, media personality, and best-selling author, her work has led to dramatic lifestyle changes for millions of people worldwide. A featured blogger for Huffington Post and Dr. Mehmet Oz’s ShareCare and Daily Strength, as well as Easy Health Options and Jennings Wire. Her expertise has been showcased in hundreds of print, online, radio and TV interviews including on Oprah.com, WebMD, CNN News, TODAY/MSNBC, Fox News, CBS, the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Readers Digest, Night Beat with Barry Nolan, Self and Shape Magazines, to name a few. In addition, for 20 years, until recently retiring, she hosted a nationally syndicated cable TV show, Woman to Woman® which explored all topics of interest to women with a special focus on relationships. A long-time proponent of the important role nurses play in healthcare, she is one of only six American Florence Nightingale Scholars, is an award-winning Nurse Advocate and has dedicated her life to improving the quality of healthcare delivery and patient advocacy. Her work in behavioral health began in 1976 when, after years in nursing and medical administration, she recognized a critically important missing piece within our current medical care delivery system. This awareness motivated her to establish the Boston based National Institute of Whole Health and develop Behavioral Engagement™, the first known whole person health education and health behavior change model developed, tested and utilized in a clinical setting.

About the Company Dara Peaks is the inventor and owner of Caring Hands Kit, LLC.

In 2013, Dara became a Licensed Practical Nurse and has held the position of Charge Nurse specializing in Alzheimer's, Long-Term Care, Rehabilitation, and Medicare at medical institutions in Illinois, Missouri and Georgia. Dara invented the Caring Hands Kit following nursing school when she saw a demand for an affordable medical kit that included supplies utilized throughout a medical professional's shift.

      If you "follow" someone, they are able to post on your Activity Wall status. Until you "followed" me, I could not post on your status wall.

      It's not a private message or a new thread. I don't really know how to compare this feature with anything. Unless, I guess (if you post on FB ... I do not), it's like updating what you are doing from minute to minute, hour to hour, etc.

      You should find all of your status updates on your wall if you've rec'd any other than mine. And, if you left status updates on any other member's wall, you can go to theirs and read if they replied to you, etc.

      You can go to your NOTIFICATIONS (above right),  then click NOTIFICATION SETTINGS. Scroll through how to be contacted regarding several things including STATUS updates for you and others you follow. There are two areas of selections to SAVE on this page.

      Just like Facebook, only without some of the negative consequences.  How about that!

    Post background shading

    No, background shading has nothing to do with Community standing. In the past, members could recognize the OP's subsequent posts because their reply would be in a faded blue background. That is a good suggestion, JKL33, and I will forward this to @Joe V Thank you!
