34: Ola Possible Creators Jami Morton & Mary Olson

Untrained Wisdom

Jami Morton and Mary Olson live in the same neighborhood in Washington state. But their friendship began with sharing a love of music through jam sessions with other neighbors and eventually morphed into one-on-one conversations about what life has to offer – specifically for perennial women like them. Driven by a desire to inspire others of their generation, the two friends created Ola Possible as a place for women to look forward to their next chapter in life, "break down the stigma around aging, and believe in what IS possible." In this interview, Mary and Jami share about how Ola Possible began, as well as the other women involved as partners and what they offer. In addition, the two friends talk about their hopes for expanding their community. Ola Possible can be found on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube. View PDF TranscriptMary's Recommendation:- Play a musical instrumentJami's Recommendation:- Maui- The 5AM ClubFind these recommendations and others on the Untrained Wisdom Pinterest page.

Open Dialogue Alternative: Mary Olson

Madness Radio

Is a ‘psychotic’ crisis inside one person’s mind — or does it happen between people, in their relationship? Can therapy untangle the web of madness by addressing the family, providers, and entire social network? Smith College social worker and Fulbright scholar Mary Olson discusses the innovative work of Jaakko Seikkula and colleagues’ Open Dialogue Approach in Finland, which has achieved dramatic success helping people through extreme states labeled ‘psychosis’ and ‘schizophrenia’ — while relying much less on medication and hospitalization. http://www.dialogicpractice.net http://beyondmeds.com/2010/01/04/alternative-for-psychosis http://www.willhall.net/opendialogue
