Jon Peters has mediated divorces and counseled separated parents for over fifteen years. Here, he offers clear explanation of mediation as well as helpful advice for choosing what to mediate, arriving prepared, and navigating the process with the least stress and greatest success! Readers will learn about: the difference between a mediated agreement and a co-parenting plan, when to seek compromise and when that's a bad idea, how brain science can help keep stress from sabotaging the process, and how to keep the mediator (and your own attorney!) from working against you. Many additional print and web resources are offered.
