Mediation is a process in which parties with differences meet with a neutral professional to resolve differences. In this program, Attorney Betsy Shequine explains why mediation is a cheaper, faster, and more successful way to end a marriage than litigation for divorce. Trained mediators, such as Ms. Shequine, teach the participants how to speak to each other as they resolve the complications of division of finances, care of children, and financial support after divorce. Mediators who handle divorce are usually lawyers themselves, while other trained mediators who deal with issues such as property disputes may be psychologists or social workers. A phone call to 845-471-6167 costs nothing and provides a way for the process to be explained. For later sessions, including the initial consultation meeting, the parties are charged on a per-session basis.

Health Information Privacy and Portability (Aired on May 9 & 10, 2015)

Rich Silva

Rich Silva

Rich Silva, Founder and President of Pain Point IT Solutions Inc., describes some of the complications concerning health information privacy and accountability rules. Before 1996, most hospital and other medical records were kept on paper and were easily available to persons other than a patient’s doctor and the patient. As part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA) and its later extensions, the privacy of medical information is assured and kept in electronic form. Pain Point IT Solutions as part of its services helps medical providers and their business associates follow the rules, which are enforced by a 164-point audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources. One problem of special significance is disaster recovery of information; even though all information has been backed up, without help it may require days to restore it.

Child Therapy and Rosie’s Law (Aired on April 13 & 14, 2014)

Dr. David Crenshaw and Rosie

Dr. David Crenshaw and Rosie

Dr. David A Crenshaw, a child psychologist who is Clinical Director of the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie, explains why children often need aid in getting though such emotional difficulties as psychosomatic symptoms, depression, difficulty controlling impulses, and behavioral problems in school; frequently intellectual or cognitive maturity precedes emotional maturity. Young children may lack language skills, but the natural expression of children is through play or art, which can be used to help them through emotional problems. Dr. Crenshaw has been involved in trying to get New York State to pass a law that would allow therapy dogs help emotionally impaired witnesses (not only children) handle courtroom trials. The law is known as “Rosie’s Law” after the first case in New York that permitted a dog to be used in this way.

The RadioRotary co-hosts interview Jody Miller, Executive Director of the Mediation Center of Dutchess Country, and Registered Nurse Carolynn Frankell, who, along with Lindsey Goldstein, chairs the third annual Anti-Bullying Walkathon. Since 1981 New York State has had a program of Alternative Dispute Resolution, which includes mediation and arbitration, with centers in every county. Mediation is a process that helps people talk about decisions and resolve conflicts. Volunteers do most of the mediation after training. The center handles small claims, landlord-tenant issues, consumer issues, divorces, caregiving problems, and workplace disputes. The Center also works with other agencies on issues such as elder abuse and bullying, a problem in many schools. Its serves can be free but some require fee payments, and mediated agreements are enforceable by the courts.
