One Step Closer to Resolution: "Family On Air with Ari Kaplan" to Launch 13 Episode Season on Zoomer Radio

TORONTO, May 23, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada's thought-leading expert in pension and benefits law and mediation, Ari Kaplan, will take to Zoomer Radio to pioneer a new program, "Family On Air", starting on June 4th.

Integrating guests and listeners' stories into an innovative new radio style designed to transcend gaps between generations, work colleagues, spouses and family members, callers will be invited to share personal stories to uncover a transformative process towards resolution.

Over the course of the hour during the 13-episode season, Kaplan will unpack the parameters and paradoxes of conflict, guiding callers to discover new boundaries, resources and opportunities for settlement, healing and resolution.

Each week, Kaplan will explore the legal, financial and emotional barriers to accessing justice by breaking down the issues surrounding separation, divorce, employment, benefits, at large and within communities.

"One of the best ways to resolve a dispute is to explore and discover how others have managed a similar situation. Often times, hearing a story that is close to your own can be persuasive to stay out of the courtroom where possible, ultimately saving time, money and emotional strain," states Kaplan.

"Family On Air with Ari Kaplan" will also explore people's diverse and unique experiences of music as a coping device during times of conflict, illustrating how certain songs are connected to our psyches, our reactions and our resolutions.

"Family On Air with Ari Kaplan" is set to air Sundays from 10am-11am on Zoomer Radio 740AM and 96.7FM Toronto, starting on June 4th, 2017. Visit for weekly updates on guests and topics.
