Barriers to Divorce Resolution:  Learning to think like a negotiator

Barriers to Divorce Resolution is a three-scene DVD enactment of a couple negotiating aspects of their divorce. The scenes place the viewer in the position of a negotiator asked to help the couple, Robert and Helen, resolve their divorce related issues. The scenes are short (three to nine minutes) but present sufficiently complex issues for extended follow up discussion. The accompanying instructor notes suggest various discussion topics and significant issues. The material can be used to introduce negotiation theory and skills to parents, supplement negotiation training of legal, mental health, and financial professionals, and as a “warm up” exercise for negotiators immediately prior to collaborative law joint sessions or mediation.
