Why Have a Collaborative Separation/Divorce Coach on Your Team?

They help affirm identity, history and connection for the family and strive to best meet future needs for separating and reforming families.
What is the Role of a Collaborative Separation/Divorce Coach?
CSD Coaches work with the individual/couple to improve communication and understanding. An important aspect to achieving improved health within the relationship of the separating/divorcing couple is a clear understanding of concerns and hopes for both parties. CSD Coaches are trained to evoke these identified priorities in the pursuit of improving conflict resolution both present and future. CSD Coaches also assist the separating/divorcing couples to improve their focus and abilities regarding moving toward positive resolution and effective co-parenting.
