Description

Therapeutic Family Mediation is a practice-based book grounded in a therapeutic family mediation (TFM) model created by the authors. TFM, unlike other practice models for family mediation, devotes special attention to family and emotional dynamics, and therefore can be used in a wider variety of cases. This comprehensive guide not only focuses on TFM, but also surveys the contemporary practice field to make readers aware of other models. In addition to the TFM model, the text includes topics such as creating parenting plans, working with patterns of conflict and money, drafting a contract, working with high-conflict couples and culturally diverse couples.
