What We'll Discuss:
In this series of unstructured conversations, we'll look at one of the most persistent problems faced by the collaborative community: in thirty years, we have made little progress toward realizing our movement’s mission: changing how divorce is understood and handled worldwide.
Collaborative Divorce remains largely invisible to the cultures we all live in. In the United States, most lawyers and judges outside the domain of family law don’t know we exist. They make referrals to the most aggressive divorce lawyers, believing this is helpful and remaining unaware of the consequent harms that can result. Most mental health professionals who don't do Collaborative Divorce are ignorant of our work; they don’t refer their clients to collaborative lawyers, though they would if they knew what we do. Religious leaders, who surely ought to value our child-focused, respectful, values-based team approach to divorce, don’t know anything about us.
The same seems to be true in most other countries where Collaborative Divorce is available. This program seeks new solutions to the problem.
This series of five conversations will be presented as live webinars, and subsequently on-demand. Register now for each webinar separately; places are limited.
