It is important to understand that when a marriage is over, it is not the time for retribution and revenge, but rather the opportunity to strike out for a new life while providing for and protecting the children. This book — the first comprehensive treatment of family mediation for Chinese families — provides the knowledge and skills to achieve that objectives. Throughout the book the author discusses practical techniques for resolving family conflicts and creating parenting plans. The model described enables mediators — who may be social work, psychology or legal professionals — to negotiate the issues in dispute so as to arrive at a settlement that is mutually acceptable, and is fair and equitable to the families. Divorcing couples should also read the book because it will help them with ideas and principles leading towards amicable solutions.

With 42% of marriages ending in divorce and many cohabiting couples separating, family therapy has become a key aspect of counselling and psychotherapy. Beginning with descriptions of contemporary pre-separation family conflict patterns, this book progresses to examine the challenges faced by families and their assisting professionals as they transition through residential separation, parental struggle, mediation assistance, family court applications, and other patterns of unending high conflict. Focusing on practitioner needs, the skills required, and a range of helpful interventions that can be used to address specific contexts, each chapter has a four-part structure that includes: - The description of a topic-related theme, its related concepts and evidence base. - The making concrete of the theme through case vignettes of family conflict and their discussion. - The naming of the challenges faced by professionals, the skill set required, and helpful interventions they might use in their responses. - Concluding exercises designed to assist students and professionals towards an increasingly reflective practice. Written by a leading expert in Family and Conflict Therapy, a growing area of academic and professional interest, Family Conflict after Separation and Divorce is the only book to combine theory, research, and practice into one accessible text that helps promote the personal and professional development of practitioners and students alike.

This book examines mediation topics such as impartiality, self-determination and fair outcomes through popular culture lenses. Popular television shows and award-winning films are used as illustrative examples to illuminate under-represented mediation topics such as feelings and expert intuition, conflicts of interest and repeat business, and deception and caucusing. The author also employs research from Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States of America to demonstrate that real and reel mediation may have more in common than we think. How mediation is imagined in popular culture, compared to how professors teach it and how mediators practise it, provides important affective, ethical, legal, personal and pedagogical insights relevant for mediators, lawyers, professors and students, and may even help develop mediator identity.
