Today:   We asked Barbara Dahl, the director of the Indiana University Northwest Counseling Center into the studio to talk about the different types of stress that can affect personal or family relationships during the holidays.  44% of women and 31% of men report that their stress levels are higher than normal over the holidays, levels that could -- in some cases -- even destroy relationships or marriages.  Barbara offers some tips to be able to deal with these stresses.  Peter Novak of the Greater Northwest Indiana Association of Realtors also talks about the latest single-family home sales in the seven counties covered by GNIAR and median home sale prices.  And he also offers a look at home sales trends in the Region going into 2019.
