Today's guest, Vivian Fransen, is a writer, a thinker, and a self-described human shock absorber. She has worked with a wide range of organizations as a communications officer, a director of development, a hospital grants administrator, a university development officer, a hospice care administrator, a family planning counselor, and a houseparent in a residential treatment center for troubled girls.
Little did she know that when she worked as an intern in a
crisis intervention center during her senior year at college,
Vivian Fransen would later utilize all all of those skills she
learned—defining the problem, ensuring personal safety, providing
support, examining alternatives, making plans, and committing to
action—years later when her own marriage was in trouble. Despite her personal struggles, she finds her fine-tuned capacity for empathy, acceptance, and positive regard toward others remains strong. We’re going to hear about all of that today from the author of The Straight Spouse: A Memoir.
