"This title was first published in 2001. When marriages break down, most parents experience difficulty in agreeing on contact or residence arrangements for their children. Family Courts Services provide mediation as a way of resolving differences and many parents accept this offer of assistance. Featuring extensive empirical research, this book examines the effectiveness of family mediation services and challenges the view that court-based interventions are unlikely to be successful."--Provided by publisher.
