Jane C. Murphy and Jana B. Singer. Divorced from reality: rethinking family dispute resolution. New York University Press, 2015.

KF505.5.M868 2015

 

The authors examine recent developments in family dispute resolution, which has gradually moved away from an adversarial model in favor of a “problem solving” approach. While this may be an improvement, they argue, the system must continue to evolve in order to reflect the realities of modern families.
