How can separated parents negotiate sharing parenting amicably for the benefit of their children?
On Thursday 11 February at 10am join Director of Serenity Family Law Michael Hughes to find out about some of the negotiation skills he uses with clients that aim to put the child at the centre of decision making.
Family breakdown is often emotionally charged and can be extremely distressing for both parents, and children caught up in the battle.
A recent survey by John Barry and Louise Liddon, published in a special issue of the Psychreg Journal of Psychology, captured the experience of 29 men who had separated from their partners over 12 months. These men experienced 358 stressful experiences related to child contact issues and 229 stressful experiences related to family court issues. The researchers concluded that “Child contact problems and family court issues are related to chronic mental health problems for men following family breakdown”. The findings add to the case for providing far more support to separating families to assist them in issue resolution and co-operative parenting outside of the court.
Award winning solicitor, Michael Hughes, will be presenting a guide on negotiation best practice. The guidance, derived from Harvard Business School, aims to inform attendees about how negotiations should be conducted, give insight into that process and understand in particular, how child contact and residence cases should be conducted under “Game Theory”. The presentation will cover Framing, Process, Empathy and “How to play the infinite game”.
