The Future of Family Court is designed for judicial officers with an emphasis on applying lessons
learned from the field of mental health to the family court system, especially when working with parents
with personality disorders or traits.

Written from Bill Eddy’s perspective as a family lawyer and mental health professional, and as a trainer
of judges in managing high-conflict people in court, he provides tips on what individual judges can
do, rather than recommending sweeping changes in the court system or creating new players in the
decision-making process.

The court is in a good position to prevent child stress from the start or to reduce it by mandating efforts
for positive change by their parents – from ordering parenting programs and classes, to setting limits
on emotional attacks during the hearing process.

Judges who apply the principles described in this book should feel a much better sense of control
over their courtrooms and less stress, as the families are doing more of the work, practicing conflict
resolution skills that will help them raise their children out of court, or showing each other’s patterns
of behavior to more accurately see what needs attention and protective orders.
