Reducing Co-Parenting Conflict Through Mediation/MWI

People often think of family mediation as a practice reserved primarily for the benefit of divorcing couples. The tools that make divorce mediation effective have also been shown to serve co-parents exceptionally well. Raising children in two households presents many challenges, and the approach parents take can have a profound impact on their children’s development. The single most important factor that leads to better or worse outcomes for children of parents who are separated or divorced is the level of exposure to parental conflict.

Join Ben Stich in a conversation about the ways in which mediation can reduce parental conflict by improving co-parenting civility, communication and decision-making. Ben will share his experiences (successes and not-so-much successes) working with parents in mediation. Ben will also draw upon his experience as an instructor for the only High Conflict Parent Education Program in Massachusetts, held at Williams James College. Ben is a mediator and social worker with a family and divorce mediation practice in Natick, Newton and Walpole.

MWI Roundtable events are free for all active MWI mediators. Those who are not actively mediating with the MWI Court Panel are welcome to attend up to two Roundtables per year for free. RSVP is required for all attendees and can be completed by registering online. The first 30 minutes of each Roundtable is devoted to social time. For more information on this and other upcoming MWI Roundtables, click here.
