FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the near future divorce experiences for families can be drastically different thanks to a movement among some trail-blazers who believe families going through divorce should have a softer, gentler landing.
The National Association of Divorce Professionals is leading this movement. NADP's in-person and online platform brings together all divorce industry professionals who believe in educating and networking with each other in order to better serve their clients.
Whether its conscious uncoupling, mediation or litigation, NADP chapter founders and members believe that a smoother transition is possible for those divorcing.
"It takes a village to get a couple divorced," says NADP Co-Founder Vicky Townsend. "We bring that village together.”
The NADP creates a unique collaborative environment. At monthly meetings, chapter members share their expertise with each other through presentations called “NADP EDTalks.” For example, an attorney learns from an accountant how recent tax changes may affect their client. Or, a real estate professional learns from a psychologist the affects that staging a home may have on a couple’s young children.
In fact, psychotherapist and NADP Boca chapter member, Alexia McLeod, recently applied knowledge she gained during an “NADP EDTalk” to assist a client through a difficult situation.
“My patient was having a difficult time coping with the stress of her finances. I was able guide her to ask the right questions in regards to her divorce settlement and capital gains taxes. She took my referral and had the property analyzed. This advice kept her from ending up with a tax liability.”
“If we, as an industry, can help couples get through divorce with as little damage to their relationship as possible, we can save the next generation," says NADP Aventura Chapter Director and Family Mediator, Denis Tamir.
“Children are always the collateral effect of everything in divorce. That’s why we must work together to change the experience of divorce for all involved," says NADP Co-founder and Communication Skills Coach, Liz Becker. "Already, both NADP members and the families they serve are benefiting from this synergy."
NADP has chapters in Fort Lauderdale, Aventura, Coral Gables, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach and will soon be expanding nationwide. It has monthly meetings and an online platform. To learn more visit www.theNADP.com
