As specialist in separation/divorce and remarriage transitions, I have enjoyed creating resources for professionals and for the public. My daily involvement with clients and associates generates a steady stream of ideas that inspire me to develop concepts and working models that can help us move forward. The best ideas travel well between the domains of professional understanding and innovation to the real needs and challenges of today’s families and back to help professionals evolve best practices to help families move forward.
Collaborative Divorce Coaching; Working Toward A definition and Theoretical Location for the Family Therapist
As a psychologist and licensed marriage and family therapist (AAMFT), I include working as a Collaborative Divorce Coach and a Collaborative Child Specialist in my Practice.
Interdisciplinary teams provide an unparalleled opportunity for peacemaking in families.
Once basic financial needs are met, the greatest social risk to children is prolonged conflict between their parents.
Collaborative Separation and Divorce is a process that brings the best of legal, personal and financial wisdom to the process of separation and divorce in a humane and cost-effective fashion.
The current metaphors prevent us from seeing important aspects of the divorce/remarriage process and discourage us from moving forward.
