Questions to Ask if you are Separating

March 4, 2018

In order to work out a separation agreement, healthy communication is vital. However, communication challenges are very typical with separating couples. Here are some questions to reflect on as you approach your former partner  

What’s is getting in the way of our healthy communication?

What am I feeling threatened by?

How am I behaving when I experience these threats?

What do I think my partner is feeling threatened by?

How does s/he defend from these threats?

What do I hope will be better if I can improve communication with my former partner?



We offer our clients guidance, advocacy and respect. We believe that people are shaped and strengthened by the challenges they face, like a stone in rough water.
