All that we are is what we bring to that moment in time, when creativity is called for at all stages of the family life cycle: from job changes, relocations, grief, and loss on the one hand, and simply what to make for dinner or where to go on vacation on the other hand. We learn that our biography is creativity. We learn how to create our biographies from Susie McDaniel, Ph.D. whose professional life's work has been in family systems and family communication. We learn her signature method for guiding a decade of students at Loyola Marymount University to write, and in some cases produce, their own Story-Corps narratives of seminal events that led to creative breakthroughs. This is a very practical approach to self-discovery in the quest to connect the seeds of our creativity to the needs of our life and the world.

On this episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham speak with Dr. Tom Ford, the Chief Executive Officer of The Bay Foundation, Director of the Santa Monica Bay National Estuary Program, and Co-Executive Director of the Coastal Research Institute at Loyola Marymount University. Nearly two million people live in the Santa Monica Bay Watershed stretching from Ventura County to Palos Verdes, from the Santa Monica Mountains and Griffith Park to Baldwin Hills and out to the sea—and more than 5,000 species of animals, fish, birds, and plants make their home in the Bay and the Bay Watershed. The Bay Foundation (TBF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit environmental group founded in 1990 to restore and enhance Santa Monica Bay and local coastal waters. TBF is staffed by science and policy experts who are passionate about understanding and protecting the Bay and its watershed. This provides many benefits to people and wildlife, supports a strong economy, and improves our quality of life. TBF works with a broad group of stakeholders, including government agencies, environmental groups, local communities, industry leaders, and scientists, to create and put into action innovative projects that clean up our waterways, create green spaces in urban areas, and restore natural habitats both on land and underwater, such as wetlands and kelp forests. TBF supports the U.S. EPA's Santa Monica Bay National Estuary Program (SMBNEP). The SMBNEP is one of 28 similar programs established under Section 320 of the 1987 Clean Water Act and administered by the U.S. EPA. A central aspect of this work is the implementation of 44 goals, as defined in the SMBNEP's Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP). This publicly developed and adopted plan of action provides a road map for the protection and restoration of Santa Monica Bay and local interests. Learn more about the SMBNEP.

Fernando Guerra is the Founder and Director of The Center for the Study of Los Angeles started in 1996, at the campus of the Loyola Marymount University,(LMU), located in a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. In addition to growing the Center in its breath of research, he has continued in the position of Professor of Political Science and Chicano Latino Studies for almost 40 years. He arrived at LMU after completing his Doctorate at the University of Michigan. From the very beginning of his teaching he focused his classes on Los Angeles. The inspiration for the creation of such a Center came from the 1992 riots civil unrest which erupted in response to the lack of conviction of the Police Officers who had brutally beaten Rodney King, a Black man. Fernando saw the Center as a place to understand the people of Los Angeles in hope of creating a more equitable City through information from research, student mentorship and engagement with residents and leaders. Fernando explains that the central technique at the Center is to survey the L. A. population about their views of civic issues and events and in essence become the City's pollsters, amassing data that leaders and decision makers can use when considering policies and community programs. Given the dynamic quality of the City of Los Angeles, California, there are new challenges to survey for years to come. He discusses some of their findings and surprises from the past and for today. - To contact Dr. Guerra, email, StudyLa@lmu.edu or fernando.guerra@lmu.edu

This episode may make you angry but I am hoping that it will also motivate you to advocate for change. I've invited Dr. Bibi Pirayesh back to the Diverse Thinking Different Learning Podcast to talk about learning disabilities as a social justice issue. This topic is certainly charged and rightfully so. Today, we discuss whether our current education system was built for neurodiverse learners. It is hard for me to believe that Dr. Pirayesh fell into educational therapy by accident as she is extraordinary at the work she does. She is also an extraordinary advocate. Her work in the field is tireless and in this episode, she and I discuss the hardships we face as a society that does not allow all learners to reach their potential.   Show Notes: [2:47] - Welcome back, Dr. Pirayesh! [3:53] - Learning disabilities is a social justice issue and in recent years social justice has become extremely politicized. [5:10] - While social justice is typically viewed as based around race, gender, and sex, it is all connected through ableism. [6:19] - Why people may feel frustrated and feel like they can't move forward. [8:19] - What is the ideology that fuels ableism in the education system? [9:57] - The way that it is, isn't necessarily the way it is supposed to be. It's just the way it was built and the education system is working exactly the way it was designed. [11:10] - The education system was designed to be competitive. [13:53] - When you read special education law, it becomes clear that this system is created in a specific way. [15:56] - As a system, we don't always interpret the science correctly. [16:54] - During the pandemic, people became more aware of learning problems and mental health issues, but this is not a new problem. [18:41] - Dr. Pirayesh was hopeful in the beginning of the pandemic when there were fast changes in education, but things are settling back to where they were as the pandemic slows. [20:18] - One positive change is access to mental health support, but we haven't made any shifts for marginalized students who learn differently. [22:10] - Reading is one area where research is plentiful and solid and yet we aren't making changes in the system. [23:16] - There is a connection between the prison system and education system. [26:09] - Many people, including Dr. Pirayesh, have felt at times hopeless for change. [27:45] - Small change is a starting point and Dr. Pirayesh sees the impact of individuals and schools being receptive to advocacy. [29:49] - Change is absolutely possible. [31:21] - Dr. Pirayesh shares some mindset shifts she has had to make in her business and personal life. [33:04] - There are hopeful things in a society that isn't built for everyone. Having these conversations isn't enough. There has to be action. [34:42] - How are people coming up against the system and what is the result? [37:10] - Share your story here.   About Our Guest: Dr. Bibi Pirayesh holds a Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience and Education from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master's degree in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University where her work focused primarily on children's development of mathematical thinking and cognitive neuroscience.  While the emphasis of Dr. Pirayesh's work is on remediating learning disabilities in a one-on-one setting, she is also a sought after speaker and community advocate for children and families around learning rights. Bibi works with children grades 1-12 and covers a wide range of learning difficulties including dyslexia, ADHD, and spectrum disorders. Dr. Pirayesh completed her doctoral work at Loyola Marymount University where she is also faculty and is involved with a number of service organizations including The Association of Educational Therapists.   Connect with Dr. Bibi Pirayesh: The Difference is Not the Deficit Project: Share your story   Links and Related Resources: Episode 5: Educational Therapy, Distance Learning, and Social Justice with Dr. Bibi Pirayesh 6 Quick Questions for Parents Concerned About Dyslexia   Join our email list so that you can receive information about upcoming webinars - ChildNEXUS.com The Diverse Thinking Different Learning podcast is intended for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for medical or legal advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Dr. Greenberg is a distinguished, seasoned faculty member on Lost Angeles college campuses and brings a wealth of experience not only in teaching and administration but also in union organizing and peace march demonstrations. This topic of academic labor can get very complicated very quickly, but there is no other dialogue partner I can think of that can rise to that challenge with as much grace and humility as can Professor Greenberg. We are truly delighted that he stopped by to say a hi and stay awhile to continue into the weeds a bit on this topic. And we do continue in some details, some specific numbers, so you can get a feel for what "part-time" professors get paid to teach college in Lost Angeles Ventura, and Orange County, California in recent decades.

Lora had a chance to sit down with a few of our teachers from the School of Christian Learning and talk about what inspired them to join ministry and so much more. Great interviews are coming, including today's! About Dr. Christopher:Dr. Smith-Christopher (he prefers simply "Daniel") is Professor of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University with specialization in Old Testament Studies and Theology. He is the author of several books, including Micah: A Commentary (The Old Testament Library, 2015); A Biblical Theology of Exile (Overtures to Biblical Theology, ); as well as two textbooks for Catholic high schools: Introduction to the Old Testament: Our Invitation to Faith and Justice, and (with Fr. Patrick Mullen), Sacred Scripture: A Catholic Study of God's Word (both Ave Maria Press). Dr. Smith-Christopher is also the author of “The Books of Ezra-Nehemiah” in The Oxford Bible Commentary, and “Daniel” in the New Interpreter's Bible Commentary. He is the editor of, and a contributor to: Subverting Hatred: The Challenge of Religious Nonviolence (Orbis Books). Dr. Smith-Christopher's teaching reflects wide interests. He has taught on topics in scripture, particularly of the Exilic and Persian periods, and on issues of peace, justice and non-violence, but also on the role of Scripture in African-American Gospel and Blues musical and lyrical traditions, the Bible in Maori/New Zealand cultural contexts, and cross-cultural interpretation of the Bible more generally. Dr. Smith-Christopher has taken both undergraduate and graduate students to New Zealand often, but also regularly takes classes on local visits to culturally-based parishes and congregations in the Los Angeles area, as well as taking students on a Train trip through the Southwest to visit and listen to Native American Christians share their traditions and perspectives. Dr. Smith-Christopher also team-teaches a course on Lamentations and the Blues in Memphis, TN. He has also consulted on many television and multimedia projects in these areas. "Besides teaching the Old Testament, and especially those Scriptures that arise from ancient Israel's traumatic experiences of conquest and subordination under empires - I am especially committed to finding ways to listen to diverse voices today. I am fascinated by the intellectual challenges, and the gifts, of readings from ethnically, culturally, and spiritually diverse Christians - and I seek to invite Christians from many backgrounds to share their readings of the Scripture and how their own insights can transform everyone's readings of the book we share. My reading of the Bible, and my life, has been transformed by listening to experiences other than my own."Support the show

Sometimes coaches dream up the best basketball schemes in the most unlikely locations, like when Steve Kerr and Bruce Fraser plotted out the Golden State Warriors' motion-driven system at an airport wine bar. In the case of Paul Westhead's speed game - a devastating combo of continual fast break offense and pressing defense - it all came together when he coached Puerto Rico players during summers off from his main role at LaSalle University in the 70s. Westhead was later named head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers after his friend Jack McKinney fell off his bike and sustained a TBI. After making some inspired adjustments following Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Finals injury, Westhead guided the Lakers to the NBA title in six games against Dr. J's Sixers, with Magic Johnson winning MVP in his rookie season. Westhead went on to perfect his “shoot in 5 seconds or less” approach - aka “The System”  at Loyola Marymount University, where the duo of Hank Gathers and Bo Kimble hung 122 points per game on their opponents. In this episode, Paul shares: How his college coach Dr. Jack Ramsay helped him get into coachingWhy he played Magic at center in the Finals How Puerto Rico basketball and Old Dominion coach Sonny Allen shaped The SystemWhy he's always promised to blow his new team's socks offWhat legacy Hank Gathers left and why he still remembers the free throw Bo Kimble took in his honorLearn more about Paul's basketball journey in his book Speed Game: My Fast Times in Basketball and follow him on Twitter.

You've heard of "the Deep State". Muldoon calls local government "the Shallow State." Kevin has a great sense of humor. Kevin started his career in politics in the George W. Bush White House (Executive Office Building), eventually going on to Law School in Orange County and then to the local prosecutor's office after passing the Bar. He eventually went into business. He graduated from a Loyola Marymount University in Lost Angeles (where Dr. Mather, TRP's producer and host, also went and where Dr. Mather taught for a long time). Kevin was awarded the Dr. Singleton Award in Economics while at LMU. He was recruited by locals to run for local office in Newport Beach and so he did back in 2014, and was elected to the part-time City Council position, where he has been since. He has been Mayor, before, and is currently serving as Mayor, having been selected for the position by his City Council elected colleagues. I'll bet you'll learn something you didn't know about local politics if you stick around. "You don't do it for the money." The Republican Professor is a pro-local-politics-done-right, pro-educating-folks-about-local-politics, pro-transparent-and-no-BS-politician podcast. Therefore, welcome Mr. Mayor of Newport Beach , California (Orange County), USA, Mr. Kevin Muldoon ! The Republican Professor is produced and hosted by Dr. Lucas J.

Michael Pipich has always been interested in the field of psychology. As long as he can remember, he has found people fascinating and always wondered about their personalities, quirks, and the how and why behind their behaviors and interactions with others. He recalls one weekend when his older brother came home from college with a psych 101 book, and he spent the whole weekend looking through his book and admitted that was his first “act of academic nerdiness.” Like his older brother, he applied for admission to Loyola Marymount University and when he got accepted, he declared psychology as his major right away. Michael has been in the field of psychology for over 30 years and has treated patients with a wide range of mental disorders and relationship problems. Michael currently works as a marriage and family therapist at the Colorado Center for Clinical Excellence which has two locations in Colorado (one in Denver and the other in DTC/Greenwood Village). He has been featured on television, radio, and in print media on a variety of topics and has become a national speaker and writer on bipolar disorder. He book, “Owning Bipolar: How Patients and Families Can Take Control of Bipolar Disorder” (Citadel Press, 2018) has become an important book and reference in the field of bipolar treatment. In this podcast interview, Michael opens up about why he wrote the book and recalls his academic and professional journey in hopes that others will benefit from his advice and suggestions regarding selecting psychology graduate schools and programs. Michael also discusses the licensure requirements in the state of California regarding getting your Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) license (which used to be called the Marriage Family Child Care [MFCC] license). He explains that it really starts with the graduate school you select and attend. In his case, the program at California State, Fullerton provided the classes necessary for the MFCC (now LMFT license). Beyond that, he had to accrue over 3,000 plus supervised hours for which any licensed clinician (PhD, LCSW, MD, etc.) could sign off on. Then, he had to pass a written examination and then pass an oral examination. To learn more about his experience getting his LMFT in California, tune in to our discussion around 22 minutes into the podcast interview. Michael enjoys music, playing guitar, and has even dabbled in music composition. He also enjoys the outdoors (hiking, skiing, water sports) and believes staying active is important for a healthy life, especially if you are in a profession where you are helping people. He has been married for 32 years and has two adult children who he really loves and admires.

It was a morning class, Philosophy 160, Philosophy of Human Nature as it was called at the time, that began her friendship with the professor. [LMU has since dispensed with the course for reasons that utterly baffle all intelligent people]. That was 10 years ago as of the recording of this episode.

Preaching for the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Krista Chinchilla-Patzke offers a reflection on focusing the work ahead: "We, as Jesus' disciples were, are being invited to embrace freedom and shift our attention onto something else. After saying goodbye to my family in California, it's easy for me to think solely of everyone and everything that I'm leaving behind. It is my concentration on that - not my goodbyes, -that may make me unfit. We are being asked to focus on the kindom of God—not to be absorbed by what we lose when we say 'yes' to following Jesus. There is a cost to discipleship, but there is much more gain." Krista Chinchilla-Patzke was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala and raised in Southern California.
