It takes two to cooperate, but what if the other parent won't? Mediators working with parents living separately are often called on to deal with the frustration and resignation of co-parents who give up when there is lack of cooperation. Self-Centered Co-Parenting is an effective approach to empowering frustrated parents to engage in quality parenting and decision-making that focuses on what is in the parent's own control rather than escalating the conflict between parents.
The author is a family lawyer and mediator with over three decades of experience in helping parents interact productively with their co-parents to raise a child. Mediators can use this book as a resource for parents and to coach high conflict parents in more effective strategies for conflict management. This book is tailored to the consumer with concise explanations and many practical examples. It also contains an extensive appendix for those who want to know more about the theory behind these strategies.
