Podcast Episode 68: Positive Co-parenting After Separation and Divorce

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 68 of The New Family Podcast where we explore what it takes to achieve positive co-parenting after separation and divorce.

For this episode I’m joined by family lawyer-turned-mediator Rosanna Breitman, who was on the show to talk about why marriages end back on episode 26, which is our most popular episode so far. I really wanted to have Rosanna back on the show to share more of her insights, this time on how people can co-parent well together after a romantic relationship ends. And in fact, we’re going to be diving even further into this topic in our very first webinar coming up on Tuesday, May 17th, 2016, at 8 p.m. Eastern, 5 p.m. Pacific. If you or someone you know is co-parenting, whether you’re just recently separated or even if it’s years later, please find the link to the registration for that at thenewfamily.com/coparent.

Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Rosanna.
