Mediation

Separating or divorcing parents sometimes choose to work with a mediator to formulate a parenting plan.  The mediator's report is then usually reviewed by each parent's attorney.

With experience in child development, family systems, and mediation, Dr. Northman can assist an attorney by:

     * Identifying a situation in which mediation of a parenting plan may be appropriate.

     * Reviewing a proposed mediated parenting plan from the perspective of an independent psychologist with the child's best interest uppermost.
