Pre-mediation Coaching: New Ways For Families

New Ways for Families® is a short-term method for strengthening conflict skills for parents in separation or divorce, whether married or never-married. It’s designed to save courts time, to save parents money, and to protect children as their families re-organize in new ways.

This model is particularly beneficial for potentially high-conflict parents who would benefit from learning the skills prior to mediation, but do not require intensive counseling. Learning the skills prior to mediation should make for a more effective mediation process. An Instructor’s Manual is provided.

Pre-Mediation Coaching

We provide each person with a separate accredited mediator for a two-hour preparation coaching session. The focus is for each parent to practice four key conflict-reducing skills before they have to make important decisions together.  The goal is to help parents make their own parenting decisions out-of-court.

We also offer a more extensive New Ways for Families program for families experiencing high conflict that is a six week coaching program. For more information click here.
