Two Homes, One Childhood

An interdisciplinary workshop for psychologists, family law attorneys, mediators and LMHPs addressing the emotional and relational considerations in therapy, mediation and dispute resolution.(See Continuing Education below.)

Robert Emery offers a simple message with profound implications for parenting across two homes (due to separation, divorce, the break-up of cohabitation, or childbearing outside of marriage). If parents can be parents, kids can be kids, not forever “children from broken homes.” Parenting across two homes involves practical, emotional, relationship, and legal challenges. Yet, parents truly can put their children first. This workshop, which should be of interest to therapists, mediators, lawyers and other legal professionals, focuses on four “big lessons” Emery has learned in 35 years of work as a researcher, therapist, mediator, and parenting coordinator.
