Item description for Family Mediation: Theory and Practice With Chinese Families by Howard H. Irving...
It is important to understand that when a marriage is over, it is not the time for retribution and revenge, but rather the opportunity to strike out for a new life while providing for and protecting the children. This book--the first comprehensive treatment of family mediation for Chinese families--provides the knowledge and skills to achieve that objective.
Throughout the book the author discusses practical techniques for resolving family conflicts and creating parenting plans. The model described enables mediators -- who may be social work, psychology or legal professionals -- to negotiate the issues in dispute so as to arrive at a settlement that is mutually acceptable, and is fair and equitable to the families. Divorcing couples should also read the book because it will help them with ideas and principles leading towards amicable solutions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Family Mediation: Theory and Practice With Chinese Families?
Useful book that acknowledges cultural backgrounds Aug 22, 2003
I find this book to be very useful. Family mediation is of more and more importance in Hong Kong. However, most of the overseas books on the subject caters for people who has a western background. In fact, people in Hong Kong may think in a different way than their western counterparts. Therefore, this book, which takes into account the mentality of people in HK, is doubly useful, both in terms of theory and as a practical guide. I will give it five stars.
