CommentsFrom the beginning of my professional experience, I have been a strong proponent of a multidisciplinary approach for the resolution of family conflict. I am convinced that within collaborative practice lie all the tools and resources necessary for a comprehensive response to best help the divorcing couple in dealing with their personal, social, legal and economic transitions. While I continue to argue cases before the court, I am an enthusiastic supporter of collaborative practice because it values the role of the attorney as negotiator and guidance counselor, as opposed to that of adversary. Working towards mutual resolution in family conflict serves not only the interests of those parties, but also has a positive effect on society at large. For the world to become a better place we must start with children and as children. With this conviction, I translate Gregg F. Relyea and Joshua N. Weiss’ book Trouble at the Watering Hole - The Adventures of Emo and Chickie. The Italian version is entitled Piccoli negoziatori crescono - Le avventure di Emo e Chickie.
