For this reason, we are now offering for sale on a limited basis, a new version of the iodine-based product that my family has been producing for the medical establishment for over 20 years. In response to this new pandemic, we are now developing a consumer wipe version of that original wound-care bandage, which we’re calling the IoWipe.

Max Rivers has a unique ability to adapt Marshall Rosenberg’s NVC™ to intimate relationships.
The first couples session is guaranteed – if either of you feel there was no value to the session, there is no charge. If you decide to proceed after the first session, we’ll negotiate a fee (based on our sliding scale as a starting place) that is agreeable to all three of us; and I’ll have an idea of about how many sessions I expect it to take (up to a maximum of six).
The Teamwork Method is a unique combination of Embodied NVC (Non-Violent Communication (c) created by Marshall Rosenberg) and Teamwork Mediation. In the first part of the process, we teach you E-NVC to help each of you become clear about your heart’s desires (what Marshall called your Universal Human Needs) and then how to share them with your partner and how to listen for their feelings and needs (called Empathy) instead of judging and arguing with each other about your differences. Once all the needs are on the table, then we teach you the negotiation skills of Teamwork Mediation so you can create win-win resolution in which everyone feels their needs are being heard, understood, respected and met.
Along with reading assigned chapters in my book, Loving Conflict, and practicing using the homework I give you, I can teach you all of these skills in six or fewer sessions.
In our experience, conflict is actually just misunderstood difference. And getting the benefit of the particular difference that you were attracted to (because you need this difference in your life) is the whole point of relationship.
We believe conflict is your relationship trying to go deeper. But there are often two things in the way of achieving this deeper form of intimacy: old wounds and new communication skills to handle the deeper level of closeness. Our process teaches you how to be co-healers of your old hurts, and co-creators of the relationship you have both always wanted.
You can learn more at TheMarriageMediator.net as well as watch videos of clients discussing their experience with the Teamwork Mediation Method.
We’ll help you resolve your presenting challenges, teach you E-NVC skills, as well as give you a deep understanding of what is motivating you and your partner so that you can maintain your own relationships.
The Teamwork Men's Group Project
Max Rivers spent 20 years running Men’s Emotional Support Groups as Director of the Boston Men’s Center. He was also one of the founding fathers of several men’s conferences including: Mainely Men, The Massachusetts Men’s Gathering and the National Organization of Changing Men.
The Teamwork men’s groups with be facilitated by Max using the skills he learned running hundreds of groups in the 70’s and 80’s; as well as including techniques he has since developed which he calls Embodied-NVC (Non-Violent Communication).
In this culture, men tend to lean on women for all their support, and it turns out, a lot of those needs can be better met from men whose life experiences are more alike. During this time of forced isolation, the goal of this group is to give the men who participate an opportunity to have the support of other men who have worked with Max in their marriages and relationships.
We’re starting with 2 Free Drop-In Men’s Groups in December 2020 (one on Wed 12/16 and the other on Tues 12/22, both from 7pm-9pm. These are designed to give men a chance to try out the group before committing to the on-going, for fee, group that will start in Jan 2021.
For more information about the group, a video describing it and a place to reserve your spot in either/both the December meetings or the January 4 week commitment, click here.

Session and Book Review
I have no doubt that Max’s honest, compassionate, straightforward approach can help couples with all sorts of issues who want to have a return of intimacy and create a much deeper relationship that they desire.
Also, EVERYONE should read Max’s book “Loving Conflict” which is packed with useful information that gets to the root of problems in a loving, truthful manner. I will be recommending this book and am blown away by it – it resonates in a way a lot of other NVC does not in the way things are described and laid out and the examples that are used – a must read!!!
See Max/read his book if you are looking for more depth or prevention of more conflicts and also to grow yourself.
THANK YOU, MAX!

I think he’s an extraordinary teacher. I even hesitate to say that, he’s also a model himself, helping us to feel the way it would feel to live with this kind of life perspective on daily basis.
To me it’s been an extraordinary experience. I think everybody from all walks of life in all situations could benefit greatly from taking from taking a course like this.
