If you are in the process of getting a divorce, communication between you and your soon to be ex is likely strained at best. Over time, your communication may have become more and more difficult. In fact, communication problems may have even contributed to your divorce. However, if you share children, you will need to find a way to communicate effectively in order to make parenting decisions. We find that most parents have no problem putting their children first, but it can be difficult to successfully communicate about parenting after a marriage has just ended. The team at AMS Mediation understands how difficult a divorce can be for a family. Our mediation practice is focused on helping families navigate divorce from start to finish. This includes more than finalizing the legal paperwork and making sure that joint property is divided equally. We believe that our focus on communication strategies for parents can be one of the most important and valuable components of our work.
What Does a Communication Coach Focus On?
One of the services we provide our clients with is a communication coach. Our communication coach can work with you on a wide variety of issues, tailored to your family’s unique needs and challenges. A communications coach can help you develop strategies for communicating without emotion, which can be difficult and very different from previous communication. In addition, our communication coach can help you develop tools for protecting your children from the conflict between you and your ex, raising concerns and negotiating for solutions, listening to understand, avoiding co-parenting pitfalls and how to communicate in a way that is focused on the future rather than the past.
Communication coaching sessions can be held online or in person and can include one or both individuals. These coaching services are fully customized, so you can expect our coaches to work to get to know you and your ex and understand the reasons for your divorce and the interpersonal dynamics that are present. You can use our communication coach during the divorce process, or even afterward if/when conflict comes back up between you. It can be a long-term resource for your family and can help you avoid high stress and high conflict situations that can result in litigation.
