Abstract

Divorce has been a prevalent problem in America for at least the past decade. Divorce can be separated into three different conflict categories: high, medium, and low conflict. High conflict divorce is the most severe in damaging the family unit and crippling communication between parents. This research found that mothers who reside in women shelters are the most affected by this type of divorce. Throughout the period of a high conflict separation that involves children, the mother exhibits cycles of grief and their related communication patterns. A presentation was created for women to provide them with communication tools and tactics that provided them with life skills to reduce these cycles and patterns.
