    "Divorce Process Options: Do you know if and how children's needs are considered in these options?"  


    with 

    Mary Ann Aronsohn, LMFT; 

    Carrie Edwards-Chung, LCSW;

    Jami Fosgate, JD; 

    Steven Garelick, CPA



    This workshop will help you guide clients heading for divorce. The single most important decision divorcing couples make is...choosing their divorce process. You will learn about the pros and cons of a Do-It-Yourself Divorce, Litigation, Mediation (Traditional, Co-mediation & Enhanced Mediation) and a Collaborative Divorce. Clients need to know how the divorce process they choose directly impacts their children in particular, as well as their relationships, values and budgets. The Pasadena Collaborative Divorce professionals speaking are all trained in their respective fields in litigation, mediation and collaborative divorce matters. The presenters are two therapists, one family law attorney, and one forensic CPA.


    Learning Objectives

    In successfully completing and attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. List 4 types of Legal Divorce Processes in California, and the professionals required for Collaborative Divorce protocols.
    2. State at least one reason that regular conjoint therapy is typically ineffective for a parent and a child in a high-conflict separation, and list one or more forms of therapy recommended instead.
    3. Identify 2 kinds of training required for licensed mental health professionals who serve as Co-Mediators, Collaborative Divorce Coaches and Collaborative Child/Adult Child Specialists.
    4. List the 4 key legal/ethical risks when working with children in a family going through divorce.
    5. Identify 5 ways parents and therapists can help to buffer children from the adverse impacts of divorce.
