Parenting coordination is a sophisticated, collaborative effort among psychologists, counselors, social workers, mediators, and legal professionals that helps divorcing parents avoid further litigation while working together in the best interests of their child.

This one-stop text contains all the information legal and mental health providers need to manage and resolve high-conflict custody disputes outside of the courts. Initial chapters describe the history of the field and the basic competencies needed to undertake parenting coordination work as well as the practical necessities for running a parenting coordination practice.

The authors guide readers through the often difficult push-pull of parenting coordination sessions and describe empirically validated behavioral change techniques that bring results with even the most high-conflict parents. Suggestions for dealing with domestic violence are also provided.

Additional resources include practice guidelines from APA and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
