This book is an absolute must-read for anyone who works as a parenting coordinator or who is thinking of including parenting coordination as a part of their practice, and is something I would have love to have had when I first started working as a parenting coordinator six years ago. The book includes the work of many leaders in the development and practice of parenting coordination, including Joan Kelly, Robin Deutsch and Matthew Sullivan, and covers the basics of parenting coordination and more advanced practice issues in depth. Topics covered include:
- parenting coordinators' training and core competencies,
- establishing and maintaining a parenting coordination practice,
- balancing parenting coordinators' caseloads,
- ethical issues unique to parenting coordination,
- managing risk,
- including children in the parenting coordination process, and
- parenting coordination in the context of family violence.
This book offers and excellent soup-to-nuts overview of parenting coordination and offers practical, pragmatic advice that both new and experienced parenting coordinators will find useful.
