Many couples and parents are not speaking to one another when they come to a Détente free consultation. It takes two to untie the knot of marriage in divorce or separation. There are so many decisions that have to be made by you together.
The only way couples can successfully negotiate amicable settlements is if each can communicate to the other and to the mediators what he or she needs and what is important. To do that, we teach a new way for couples to talk to and hear each other like never before without doing therapy.
Using techniques adapted for divorce from Imago relationship dialogues, couples break through communication barriers at the time in their lives when it is most difficult (and most critical). Good communication in divorce make sit possible to avoid litigation and lays the foundation for cooperation long into the future.
