Format: Hardcover
Janet Johnston is one of the most careful and thoughtful researchers in the field of family law. "In the Name of the Child" is a compilation of all of her collected wisdom dealing with high conflict and other families who find themselves in the courts. The best kernel for me, however, was her description of the "ideal family court", a model closely tracking with the one we have developed for the state of Oregon.

Format: Hardcover
Fundamental, and essential reading for parents, professionals working with separating & divorcing parents. A must read for Family Law professionals too. More than a supplement to your library.
