Dispute Resolution Survey Results

Dispute Resolution Survey Results

    I put some key questions to a group of international Dispute Resolution practitioners a few months ago – with the majority of respondents being from the UK – and here are the interim results. The size of the survey is not ‘statistically relevant’ (ie. not yet 100 participants) but it does give some thought provoking data and comments (all confidential regarding who has made them!) The participants were nearly 80% Mediators, 68% Collaboratively trained, just over 16%...

Even Swans Get Divorced

Even Swans Get Divorced

Petra isn’t known for her philandering. A number of male swans attempted to make her acquaintance in the two years preceding December 2007 – but Petra rejected them all, for she was in love with a plastic swan-shaped pedal boat. The romantic escapades of the black swan hit headlines around the world when she began following a white pedal boat around on the lake where she lived. When winter arrived, she refused to be separated from the boat when workers removed it from the lake for the winter....

Infidelity: Julia Keys wants us to spy on each other

Infidelity: Julia Keys wants us to spy on each other

  The wife of former Sky Sports presenter Richards Keys has claimed she spotted ‘telltale’ signs that he may be seducing another woman – as she wrote a book on infidelity.  A trained counsellor, she has now written a book called The Manscript, which helps readers to identify when their partner is cheating on them. I hope that as a trained counsellor, Julia Keys will offer more in her book than how to increase the level of paranoia and fear in every couple who reads the book, where...

Divorce Day and Cohabitation: Is marriage an insurance policy?

Divorce Day and Cohabitation: Is marriage an insurance policy?

On ‘Divorce Day’ in January it was refreshing to see an article in the Guardian by Zoe Williams which bucked the trend, and instead of encouraging us all to believe that vast numbers of people post-New Year were filing for divorce, Zoe pointed out some salient facts that many of us may not have thought about before: The first is that many of the couples who will be thinking of splitting up this year are not married, and about half of them don’t realise that they don’t...

Horrific facebook images of Gaza divorcing us from our own reality?

Horrific facebook images of Gaza divorcing us from our own reality?

A campaigner I admire was questioning the value of us seeing the horrific images of children dying in Gaza bombarding our facebook streams. And I wondered – if I was to collate and post images of children self-harming due to the agony of the war raging between their divorcing parents, would people be so quick to share and like and comment? It is not the images of the horrors in Gaza that are the problem for me though – it is the context. Everyone shouts “Do something”...

Educated women less threatening to their husbands – apparently

Educated women less threatening to their husbands – apparently

The Divorce News I read today in the Telegraph online is that Men are happier with a smarter wife – according to a study showing a dramatic shift in divorce patterns.  It appears that younger husbands are the first generation of men not to find more highly educated women ‘threatening’. Hoorah! Or is there another way of seeing this? With more than 2.2 million UK women now the main breadwinners in 41% of homes, this study led by Prof Christine Schwartz – a sociologist at the...
