"The end of a relationship is always a difficult time that inevitably brings suffering to former partners and children. If we add, as often happens, resentment, desire for revenge and anger, the mixture can become explosive; not by chance, the cases related to divorce proceedings are full of stories of personal, family and financial destruction. Fortunately, for some years now collaborative practice has been affirming, a non-contentious method for resolving disputes centered on the parts and guided by them. Flanked by an interdisciplinary team of professionals, the two former partners rediscover the ability to effectively communicate and identify the most advantageous solutions, rather than delegating to a judge every decision on the future of their family. The agreement thus reached exactly reflects their will: who, in fact, is more competent in resolving the differences of a separation, if not the spouses themselves? The book, a guide to collaborative practice, is aimed not only at couples about to separate, but also at all professionals who are confronted with the crisis of the family, such as legal practitioners, psychologists and social workers."
Preface by Barbara Hummel
La Collaborative Practice as a new method of conflict resolution it was born in the United States at the beginning of 1990.

This volume, full of direct testimonials from those who used the Collaborative Practice, is the best way to understand this method that has positively solved millions of cases worldwide.
It is a valuable tool for professionals, legal practitioners, but also for the general public.
In the Collaborative Practice the interaction between the parts is fundamental and, at times, other lawyers are involved, besides lawyers: psychologists and couple therapists.
At the center of the question is the well-being of the children, the commitment of the parents to collaborate with each other, to never denigrate the former partner and to request, if necessary, the help of a child specialist or a family relations facilitator .
Each topic is explained through the narration of real cases and situations that actually happened.
