Life and other catastrophes
Love, relationships, family and friendships with Professor Jane Fisher on Drive with Rafael
Do you ever get the feeling that life is full of unexpected challenges - the joys, disappointments and the occasional crossroad made a bit more complicated by the speed humps, diversions and jams?
This segment is just for you - taking you through the various complications we find in our daily lives.
Each Monday at 3:30pm on 774 Melbourne's Drive with Rafael Epstein you're invited to join the conversation with Jane Fisher, the Jean Hailes Professor of Women's Mental Health at Monash University, for Life and Other Catastrophes.
Together, Rafael and Jane explore the rollercoaster of life: from how to bring up and deal with sensitive matters in our daily lives - having a baby, who does which bit of the unpaid work, how to help teenagers use alcohol safely or how to cope with infertility - to practical everyday suggestions for dealing issues like managing unsettled and crying babies, managing difficult relationships with the grownups in your life or the challenges and benefits of life as a happily single person.
Drop in, pour yourself a cuppa and get involved with the discussion each Monday as Rafael and Jane wrestle with the issues which complicate and sometimes dominate our lives - and feel free to drop us a line for your own suggestions on which topic we should tackle next.
Life and other catastrophes - where life really is about the journey and not just the destination.
