Couples Support Chanhassen MN

Why Divorce Mediation WorksPeople who go through divorce have unique experiences, and it’s possible that no two divorces are alike. But for all the uniqueness and individuality of experiences associated with divorce, what is also likely true is that everyone who goes through a divorce experiences great stress. Divorce, in fact, is one of the most stressful experiences any individual will ever experience. It is comparable to the stress experienced when one loses a job, a loved-one dies, or when one is diagnosed with a significant illness.

But as our society begins to understand the complexities of relationships better, it’s possible to shift our thinking about divorce too, and such shifts can signal positive changes for the partners in marriage who have decided to end their marriage to one another. Johnson Mediation of Chanhassen, Minnesota, is equipped to understand and anticipate these changes, providing divorcing couples with strategies that reduce the stress of the experience.

Look Ahead and Try to Focus On Solutions

By focusing on solutions instead of problems, the mediators of Johnson Mediation offer divorcing couples the tools and strategies to reduce and minimize, if not completely eliminate, the more toxic emotions that can be associated with divorce. When couples are dealt with honestly, and presenting issues are acknowledged but not considered the sole focus, each member of the divorcing couple will be better situated to emerge from the divorce with a healthier perspective.

Johnson Mediation encourages the divorcing couple to address problems in mindful ways: assuming best intentions but confronting inconsistencies and problems; acknowledging disagreements but working toward the creation of solutions that both people can live with and support; and doing all that can be done to help each individual get on a path of health and well-being.

Johnson Mediation Can Help You Navigate the Difficult Divorce Process

A large and important aspect of the divorce process is navigating the complexities of the legal system. Mediation provides expertise for the divorcing couple, who now must separate finances and other property. Divorce can have a negative impact on other aspects of the individuals’ lives, including jobs and relationships with mutual friends. The mediation process can offer perspectives that reduce stress, which can allow each person to focus more attention on a healthy response to their changing relationship. When divorcing couples reduce their stress over and anger toward each other, more energy can be put toward friendships and focusing on one’s job.

Divorce will likely always be a part of modern life, but effective mediation can reduce the stress and difficulty that has long been associated with it. Call Johnson Mediation at 1-952-401-7599 to get started.
