6. Discuss the concept of pseudo-reconciliation and its relevance to separating and divorcing couples.
7. The point at which a couple reaches a decision to divorce is considered to be one of the most critical and potentially damaging times for children in the family. What dynamics occur with the couple that impact children negatively?
8. Divorce mediation has been used successfully to help couples settle the difficult issues associated with divorce. What are the benefits of a mediated divorce and in what situations may mediation be less effective?
