Published by: High Conflict Institute Press
In divorce and coparenting, not only do parents need to deal with their own emotions, they may be faced with a daily barrages of hostile calls, texts, social media blasts, and/or emails. How can you regain a sense of control and peace for your own sake and for the kids?
For more than a decade, the BIFF method of responding to hostile and misinforming emails, texts and conversations has grown in use by thousands of people dealing with a difficult co-parent and with those who may have a high conflict personality. This third book in the iBIFF Conflict Communication Series is especially devoted to parents dealing with issues in and after separation and divorce as they coparent their children, complete with instructions in the four-step BIFF Response® method and numerous examples for dealing with coparent situations.
When parents use this approach, not only do they feel good about their end of the written or verbal conversation, but it tends to influence the other parent to communicate more productively as well. While it's simple and practical, it's not natural for most of us because we are hooked by the emotional intensity. This book can help you reduce the conflict and regain your sanity by learning what to write and what not to write. Brief, Informative, Friendly and Firm. BIFF is a communication game changer—it works!
