Undoubtedly, the Collaborative divorce process may seem complicated, but for those who choose it, there are many long-lasting and meaningful benefits. Coaches are generally very beneficial to divorcing couples during their divorce. They help calm the waters and keep the divorce on track by containing heated emotions.
Going forward into their post divorce lives, the skills that have been learned in coaching are invaluable. These couples often sustain better communication, problem-solving skills and compassion between them. For families in transition, the children reap the benefits of having parents who can apply the communication and problem solving skills learned in coaching to their ongoing parenting relationship. And, as one little boy said to his parents after their divorce, “I’m so glad you guys are friends again.” Children need the war to stop. Coaches can help.
