Dr. Marlene Bizub works with people on how to handle separation and divorce in a more peaceful, productive manner than what we often do, as well as how to take care of our children through this process. Whether you are a divorcing parent or a teacher, counselor or other professional serving the needs of children and families, Dr. Marlene's practical steps will help everyone get through the process in a manner that preserves the dignity of the parents, saves thousands of dollars and, most importantly, ensures that the needs of the children are met. As a custody evaluator for the courts for twenty years, Dr. Marlene has seen first hand the effects on both parents and children of litigating the issue of custody or parenting time. She also has seen how the system often perpetuates the conflict, with parties pitted against each other in a contentious court battle. There is a better way!
Dr. Marlene speaks to groups about a better way to handle the issue of separation and divorce than expensive and emotionally exhausting court battles. She offers practical ideas for ways that people working with children and families can support the needs of the children as their parents go through this process. There is an art to effective co-parenting, and to supporting the constructs of effective co-parenting for those living and working around the children whose parents are engaged in co-parenting. The result is more peaceful lives with healthier relationships within the family, and happier, more productive parents and children as a result of those improved relationships. The effects can be seen at work, at school, and within the community. Everyone benefits!
