Overview

Distilled from their extensive experience in dealing with such families, the authors present a new dispute-resolution process that helps parents reduce conflict and protect the well-being of their children. Key elements in the success of this process are the professionals defining exactly what kind of services they will provide and the use of contracts and protocols with their clients. To facilitate the integration of this approach into professional practice, the book contains forms, contracts, and checklists that are currently being used in multiple high-conflict management models. This book is an invaluable resource for professionals, whether preparing them for specialized roles such as Parent Coordinator, Special Master, or Guardian ad litem, or expanding their understanding of the dynamics and management of high-conflict situations in general practice.

Editorial Reviews

Honorable Arline S. Rotman
This long-awaited and much-needed book provides solid and comprehensive information about the extraordinarily complex role of Parent Coordinators. Professionals reading this book will be made aware of the skills, knowledge, and temperament needed to do this work. This wonderful guide should be read by every professional working with these difficult cases. I applaud the authors for sharing their years of experience with others willing to take on this demanding but vital work.
Albert M. Bonin
This book is essential reading for all new and experienced practitioners involved in high-conflict management. The authors have drawn on their vast experience to provide the most comprehensive, user-friendly guide available. It will enable the reader to develop the skills necessary to rise above the boundaries of his or her particular discipline in dealing with high-conflict cases. The extensive set of forms and sample agreements included are invaluable.
Booknews
A psychiatrist, a psychologist, a social worker, and two lawyers team up to help their colleagues deal with difficult families in the period preceding, during, and following a divorce. They describe the dynamics of conflict, explain its impact on children, identify the role of the professional, and present specific techniques that come in handy. The current model is detailed and specific guidelines for case management are presented. Forms, contracts, and checklists are included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
