Transgenderism in Divorce and Family Mediation/MWI

  • 10 Jan 2018
  • 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • MWI, 10 Liberty Square - 4th Floor, Boston, MA 02109

As our world stumbles toward an “all welcome” place and well-known figures go public as transgendered, mediators will be more likely to see transgender issues arise in divorce and family mediation. No longer kept secret, the nuances of grief, anger, loss and rebirth for all family members become part of the divorce/family conversation. As one wife stated, “it’s like grieving the death of my husband while we are divorcing.” This session will explore the mediator’s role in creating a neutral, trusting mediation environment; understanding the distinct emotional processes of clients and their children; facilitating the core divorce agreements in concert with physical, medical and psychological changes; establishing clear ethical boundaries with clients and outside providers in the legal, advocacy, and therapeutic arenas.

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. For more information on this and other upcoming MWI Roundtables, click here.
