The voices of children are essential in collaborative practice and mediation.  Unique issues are raised when divorcing families include adult children, for whom there are no parenting plans or access schedules.  Tuning in to the input of the adult children empowers the process and healing of the family system. This experiential presentation helps bring the voices of these children to life.
