Even amicable separations come with complications and emotional baggage. With children in the picture, all is magnified. No couple, no individual going through divorce, needs to navigate the stormy seas of separation alone. Today, more and more couples are finding creative solutions for living together in peace, apart—but it’s a long journey to “happily divorced. And finding an objective support network takes the pressure off those already dealing with new and uncomfortable situations.
To help make the search for that support network easier, The Modern Village presents: Separated, Divorced or Remarried, Now What?
In this class our teachers include a lawyer, a mediation specialist and a family therapist:
Rhonda J. Panken, Esq., is an experienced litigator and a family mediator who brings more than 18 years of family and matrimonial law expertise to her work.
Ian Grodman, is a principal of Vag and Grodman, LLP, has been an attorney for twenty years, and has focused on mediation in recent years as a more effective, economical and holistic manner for resolving disputes.
Daniela LaValva, LCSW, is a therapist and Forensic Social Worker. Ms. LaValva graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in 1995, with a minor in Law. Since graduating she has worked in various social work settings including preventive services, school, geriatric and criminal justice.
Rhonda, Ian and Daniela will discuss best practices for navigating the emotional and logistical realities of separation, divorce and remarriage, for you and your children. Together they bring a tremendous depth of experience and knowledge to the subject.
Our goal is to help everyone involved – parents, children, extended family – come through these life changes to the most emotionally healthy, then hopefully happy, life possible.
