many children growing up between two homes and their family systems
are described as "Shattered," "Broken," or "Divorced"
when research actually supports some children fare better post-separation
while others face continuing problems from their parents' continuing
conflict. Part of truly helping families is understanding what behaviors
and approaches can help children fare better with the reality of
divorce in our society and promote healthy post-separation co-parenting.

in the mental health fields commonly deal with children and families
raising children between two homes. With over half of all marriages
in the United States ending in divorce, sometimes involvement with
the Family Court system becomes an unpleasant reality of working
with that population. Issues involving blended families, attachment
and bonding between non-custodial parents and their children, allegations
of sexual abuse by a divorcing parent, and other clinical concerns
may often end up with service providers on the witness stand. Well

courtroom time and years of experience in working with court-mandated
cases. Case examples are used extensively and seminar leaders present
