    "4 Legal Divorce Options: Are You Prepared to Guide Clients Effectively"  


    with


      Ria Severance, LMFT,

    Marr Aronsohn, LMFT,

    Jami Fosgate, family law attorney, and

    Steven B. Garelick, CPA, ABV, CFF, CVA  

         

    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) as well as Collaborative Divorce. Clients need to know how the divorce process they choose directly impacts 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 marriage and family therapists, one family law attorney, and one forensic CPA.



    Learning Objectives

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

    1. Identify 4 types of Legal Divorce Processes in California.
    2. Identify 3 types of professionals required for Collaborative Divorce protocols.
    3. When high conflict litigation is the context for a family, identify at least 1 reason that make regular conjoint therapy typically ineffective for a parent and a child.
    4. Identify the 2 kinds of training required for Licensed Mental Health Professionals who serve as Co-Mediators, Collaborative Divorce Coaches and/or Collaborative Child/Adult Child Specialists.


    Presenters


              Ria Severance, LMFT




    Ria Severance, LMFT  is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a general practice, a collaborative divorce coach and child specialist, a co-mediator, co-parenting specialist and reunification therapist. During divorce, when no one functions at their best, Ria works to elicit the higher values of divorcing partners, co-parents and their children, while enhancing the willingness and skills needed to align behavior with those values. As she helps move couples towards an honorable close to their marriage/partnership, Ria requires careful consideration of the concerns of young/adult children. 



    Mary Ann Aronsohn, LMFT




    Mary Ann Aronsohn, LMFT

     is also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and serves as a collaborative divorce coach, co-mediator, co-parenting specialist and reunification specialist. Mary Ann guides couples through the separation and divorce process, helping to reduce difficult feelings, while facilitating respect so couples can preserve their integrity throughout the process. Ms. Aronsohn offers couples a collaborative divorce assessment, divorce coaching, co- parenting coaching and classes, as well as therapy. Both Ria and Mary Ann offer Decision Counseling to couples on the fence about staying married.



                      Jami Fosgate,




    Jami Fosgate

     is a family law attorney, who switched from a successful marketing career after enduring the legal process of divorce herself. Ms. Fosgate is committed to assisting parents and children through the minefield of divorce by offering smart, effective, affordable, and respectful alternatives to traditional divorce litigation: Jami no longer litigates -- she exclusively offers clients mediation and collaborative divorce services. She helps couples to create win-win agreements tailored to their family's particular needs, budgets and concerns.




                Steven Garelick,




    Steven Garelick is a forensic CPA, with numerous additional certifications.
