Is your client willing to try the Collaborative process but the other spouse is reluctant? Why? How can you overcome their reluctance? We have answers. We share four models that explain the Reluctant Spouse: the neuroscience of divorcing spouses, the impact of naïve realism, the challenge of the emotional journey and trust building techniques. You will learn about these four models and role play strategies to use with your willing client so as to engage the Reluctant Spouse in the Collaborative process.
