The Healthy Divorce is a blueprint for a sane and civilized divorce providing couples with the tools to manage their volatile and painful interactions, negotiate rather than escalate their conflicts, and focus on the long term good of the post-divorce family. It helps parents focus on the needs of their children and bring closure to their marriage with dignity and respect for the good parts.
