Based on the 1996 Family Law Act, this book looks at how the therapist can work with the different professions involved in a divorce, how children might be consulted, and ways in which vulnerable family members can be protected.

Reviews and Endorsements

'As editors we are pleased to have this book as part of our series not only because of the importance on the statute book of the Family Law Act of 1996 but because the implications of the Act for the legal and helping professions are complex and many-layered. Thus it seems to us that this subject can only benefit from discussion informed by the perspectives offered by systemic thinking and practice.

'Margaret Robinson has, for many years, been a distinguished practitioner in social work, family therapy and family mediation. In this book we benefit from the breadth of her unique experience in these professions as she shares her concerns that all the professionals involved in care-giving to individuals and families involved in family breakdown, be adequately informed about one another's practice.'
- David Campbell and Ros Draper, from their Editors' Foreword

'As preparations are made for the implementation of the Family Law Act, there are many questions to be addressed about how the different professions will work together, how children might be consulted, and ways in which vulnerable family members are to be protected. Margaret Robinson touches on these, and reports on the research which informs her thinking. She approaches the issues with a wealth of experience both personal and professional, and with no vested interest save that of wanting to do the best for divorcing families.'
- Janet Walker - from her Foreword
