My colleagues and I use this book in our 40-hour family and divorce mediation certification training program because it's simply the best introductory text around. The late Dr. John Haynes, one of the earliest practitioners of modern family and divorce mediation, has produced an easy-to-read, step-by-step introduction to the divorce mediation process, the issues with which mediators and their clients must deal, and the ethical framework for mediation practice. Some of the information in this classic text is dated, but that does not limit the book's usefulness. I recommend that ALL family and divorce mediators, mediation students, marriage and family therapists, divorce lawyers and clergy keep this small, readable volume close at hand when dealing with clients.
