Book Description

Dec 10 2012
Befriending Your Ex After Divorce presents communication strategies, anger management tips, and other advice for building and maintaining friendship and a positive coparenting relationship with an ex after divorce.

If you are divorced, or are contemplating divorce, you've probably heard the diatribe: Divorce is messy. Divorce is a tragedy. Divorce will scar your children for life.

'Befriending Your Ex' challenges many of these destructive myths about divorce, and sets out to change the way we think about the process of divorce and its ultimate outcome. While divorce certainly can have negative effects upon children, when they occur, these effects are likely to result from a hostile and combative relationship between ex-spouses. This uplifting book '' reminds the reader that all divorces need not follow this unhappy script, and that ex-spouses can collaboratively co-parent and be a source of support, not only to their children, but to one another as well.

Author Judy Rabinor's ability to write as both a divorcee and a psychologist gives her a unique perspective on the subject, and in the book she artfully and thoughtfully combines research, clinical practice, and the everyday reality faced by a divorced parent. As a guide for parents, this book is filled with practical exercises, suggestions and strategies for coping with anger, grief, and loss, as well as the myriad of day to day issues involved in co-parenting after divorce.

Story after story-including Judy's own story-reminds the reader that once the emotional tsunami of divorce settles back down, exes can be connected and supportive to one another as they share a major joy: loving and raising children and grandchildren, enjoying the family they have created, and creating a new family unit to evolve in the wake of divorce.

Rabinor's insight, experience, humor, and spunk make her one of my favorite experts to interview for my films." --Leta Lenik, documentary film producer whose films include "Hungry to be Heard" and "Women Unchained"

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and engrossing March 10 2013
By boston jd - Published on Amazon.com

In my practice of law I don't think there's one divorced or divorcing couple that would not have benefited from this book. In my personal life I have also known people who should have read this book before they and their (soon -to- be) former spouse developed an unhealthy relationship that ended up harming their children. In addition, I found the author's comments about relationships and loss to apply to many situations other than just that of marriage. This was a very thoughtfully written, interesting and helpful book in every respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book by a Wonderful Clinican April 1 2013
By Dr. Marion A. Bilich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I am a friend of Judy Rabinor's, one might think I should disqualify myself from reviewing this book, but it is because I know Judy that I am uniquely qualified to write this review. I knew Judy throughout the process of her divorce and followed the changes in her relationship with her ex with interest. She is not just an expert writing about how to accomplish what many didn't believe possible, she has lived it. She is living proof it can be done. Her book is a culmination of her many years of personal and professional experience. As she does in her therapy sessions, she weaves into the narrative short imageries, practical exercises and journal writing designed to take the reader deeper into the material. I especially like that she included a chapter on possible pitfalls. Overall, this is a practical, heart-warming and thought-provoking book, and if you have ever wondered how you can best protect your children from any negative consequences of divorce, this book is for you.

Great insight into identifying breakdowns and barriers to effective interpersonal communication. Not just from a theoretical standpoint but from REAL life and with REAL tools and methods.Too many lawyers divide and conquer and reap the spoils leaving broken families trying to sort through the ruble. This books changes the outcomes, if you apply it!
Thank you Judith!
