Navigating Emotional Currents of Collaborative Divorce: An Introduction to Central Concepts

 Registration is closed for this event

This program will introduce listeners to the central concepts discussed in the book, Navigating Emotional Currents in Collaborative Divorce: A Guide to Enlightened Team Practice (ABA 2011). Why are some clients a pleasure to work with, and find the Collaborative process to be transformational? Why are others so challenging, and seem to resist logic and wise options despite effective work by the professionals? How can each professional, and each team as a whole, create a sense of safety and cohesion within our relationships that will support clients’ capacity to compromise? The answers to these and other questions can be understood by examining fundamental psychological concepts and applying them – in plain language that we all can understand – to all aspects of our work in Collaborative divorce cases.
