    Understanding Divorce
    Resources and Options

    with Barry Davis, Divorce Mediator

    This presentation will give therapists an understanding of the divorce process as well as helpful resources to share with their clients. Barry delivers this information in a very interactive and informal manner that encourages questions and a high level of participation. We will cover:

    1.   The Basics of Divorce - what therapists need to know about the process

    2.   Non-Adversarial Approaches to Divorce - such as divorce mediation

    3.   Online and Literature Resources - resources for both professionals and clients

    The presentation roughly breaks down into three sections:

    1. Family Law 101 - this gives professionals an understanding of the divorce process as well as the specific issues that need to be addressed to complete a divorce. We will cover the three main areas of a divorce: 1. Parenting Plan, 2. Division of Property and 3. Support (both spousal and child support)
    2. Non-Adversarial Approaches to Divorce - in this section we go into some detail regarding the mediation processes. We will address the fundamental aspects of mediation as well as answer questions from the participants.
    3. Divorce Resources - this includes associated professionals, literature and internet resources. We will cover information regarding multiple types of resources to help clients better manage their divorce.
