Making Divorce Less Painful

Cheers to the New York Times for this profile of National Association of Social Workers member Elana Katz, who helps clients work through the divorce process in a collaborative way.

Katz, MSW, ACSW,  is director of the Family and Divorce Mediation Program at the Ackerman Institute for the Family in Manhattan.

“People can become as traumatized by the process itself as knowing a marriage needed to end,” said Katz, who is also divorced. “We try to operate in a nonlitigious, nonadversarial process that engages people and brings them together in a problem-solving way that helps them come out emotionally healthy.”
