Family Mediation: Facts, Myths, and Future Prospects

Family Mediation: Facts, Myths, and Future Prospects

by Connie J. Beck, Bruce D. Sales

Editorial Reviews

Two members of the Psychology, Policy, and Law Program at the U. of Arizona trace the development of the use of divorce mediation to resolve family disputes. They explore current mediation practices and their consequences for both families and the legal system. Their study concludes that while mediation can have benefits, its proponents have overpromised what it can accomplish and have failed to confront unintended consequences that have costs for disputants and the courts. They discuss psychotherapy research methods that could be used to study and improve the mediation process. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
