Author Charlotte Friedman is a former family law barrister who decided to move from the courtroom to the therapist's chair in order to try and change the way we handle divorce. In her view, the system sets both parties up for a fight, forced as they are to face lawyers, professio...nals, forms and life-defining court negotiations, when they are also brimming over with grief and anger.In Breaking Upwards she shares the lessons she has learned from every stage of the process to try and stop divorce causing more damage than it needs to. In clear, reassuring language, she offers practical information and advice, answering questions such as:How long before I get over this divorce?How do I tell the children?Will I ever be able to cope with the new partner in my ex's life?There are also case studies showing how other people have managed their experiences.Whichever way you look at it, divorce is an end - but it is also a new beginning. This book is designed to guide you through, from separation to renewal, and give you the know-how and confidence to create a genuinely positive new story.
