Navigating Family Conflict under Pandemic Conditions
During this period of sheltering in place, the COVID19 pandemic, and our public response to it, is creating new challenges for families to navigate. Staying connected, navigating home spaces that are suddenly shared 24/7, managing financial and emotional stress, and planning for the coming weeks amid uncertainty can be hard. You may be experiencing more conflict or tension at home, with your children, with your spouse/former spouse or partner, or with other family members. If you'd like a facilitated conversation or to create a plan around any of the following topics, or others, please know that we are available to help as needed.
We’ve been offering online mediation via secure videoconferencing for years, and have moved all our services to an online format during this period to enable access to services while supporting physical distancing.
If you're not sure whether you need help having a conversation, but would like some individual support navigating these kinds of issues, conflict coaching may also be a good choice for you.
As always, we offer 15-minute free consultations by phone to hear about your situation and help you determine what services may be the best fit. Call (617) 621-7009 to explore how we can help. If your current financial situation has been impacted by current events, we can also discuss options to help ensure that our services are more accessible to people who need them.
Meanwhile, take good care; we’re all in this together!
Featured Service: Divorce Mediation
Agreement Resources provides co-mediators to help couples work through decisions related to divorce, whether in-person, or via secure videoconferencing. The number of sessions depends on how much of the process you are able to do on your own. At the end of the process, our mediators provide you with a written Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which documents the decisions you have made. This MOU serves as the blueprint for a Separation Agreement to be filed in court. We work with a number of mediation-friendly attorneys who can prepare the necessary final documents for you, as needed.
Conventional wisdom holds that mediating a divorce between two people separated by distance and time zones is far from ideal. But modern technology offers choices that weren’t available until recently and can make all the difference in creating an alternative process in which a rich and effective mediation can occur. Video conferencing and even asynchronous mediation can be used effectively in mediation when in-person mediation isn’t feasible.
For a detailed discussion of this long distance mediation option read "Online Divorce Mediation – making use of technology" by Agreement Resources co-founder Blair Trippe, in a recent issue of ACResolution, the magazine of The Association for Conflict Resolution.
