I am a disciple of Bill Eddy, LCSW, JD., having read everything he’s written that applies to family lawyers and divorce practice. He is the author or co-author of 20 books. My favorite are:
- So, What’s Your Proposal: Shifting People From Blaming to Problem-Solving in 30 Seconds!
Splitting: Protecting Yourself While Divorcing Someone with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder Paperback – July 1, 2021 (link is to the 2011 edition)
Then there is his new book that I’ve pre-ordered: Calming Upset People with EAR – May 11, 2021. (Standing for Empathy, Attention and Respect).
And into this mix we have Bill Eddy’s newest book, “BIFF for CoParent Communication: Your Guide to Difficult Texts, Emails, and Social Media Posts” which is the Number One Best Seller in Amazon’s Divorce and Separation books.
BIFF stands for keeping communications:
My advice to family lawyers is to read Bill Eddy’s books starting with this book. My advice to clients would also be to read this book in any case where there is the potential for a parenting time or parental decision making dispute!
