How to tell your former partner about Collaborative Practice is always important
Once a client is committed to use Collaborative Practice as the process to resolve issues arising from the breakdown of their relationship the key is to have the former partner get the right message about Collaborative Practice. The important thing is to find a way that produces a positive response encouraging the client’s former partner to consider the use of Collaborative Practice.
Clients can provide their former partner with material regarding the Collaborative Practice model of dispute resolution and be referred to the IACP website where there is available practical information about Collaborative Practice. The IACP website https://www.collaborativepractice.com/ and the Collaborative Practice SA website http://collaborativesa.com.au/ are both good places to find an experienced Collaborative professional.
