The TKE Nation Podcast

Connections & Conflict—Part 3 of the Esteem Discussion Series

Episode Summary

We are all interconnected, but we are not always going to agree. So, how do we deal with that? How do we approach our brothers' situations with empathy and humility? How can we employ conflict resolution skills to promote the well being of our relationships and ourselves? In this episode, Frater Greg Roskopf discusses mental health, conflict resolution, and fraternal strength with fellow Frater Dr. Gerald Opthof. Frater Opthof offers strategies built on his professional knowledge, experience and perspective gained from his life challenges. Life challenges all of us. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone. The Esteem Discussion Series is a multi-part series where we illustrate proper fraternal behavior based on the TKE value of esteem using shared stories, discourse and reflection. Esteem: That is respectful to the honest convictions of others and that refrains from treading upon that which is sacred to spirit and conscience. Contact Frater Opthof: September is National Suicide Prevention Month. All month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness.
