Summary of Presentation:
Working with Parents as They Divorce
Three things every Psychotherapist needs to know
This program is designed for professionals working with adults going through divorce. Divorce is a close second to dealing with the death of a loved one, and in some ways even more traumatic. Here are some ways that professionals can help their clients transition through this tough process while making important decisions that affect their well-being and the lives of those around them.
1) How to get divorced…alternatives available
- Mediation vs. Litigation – what are the pros and cons
- The Current Family Court System
- Narrowing the Issues
2) Parenting Plans…setting boundaries and expectations early
- Transitional vs. long-term strategies
- Age appropriate parenting time and the importance of neutral transitions
- What are they really fighting about? Their needs or the children’s needs? Developing new rules of engagement
3) Taking care of Self
- Gender differences in how divorce is handled
- The financial turmoil of divorce
- Getting back into the game
