Enjoy this special bonus episode featuring Attorney Terri Breer honoring the work and legacy of the late Dr. Constance Ahrons, author of The Good Divorce and We're Still Family.  Dr. Ahrons groundbreaking work including her longitudinal studies of children and families in divorce and her innovative new construct of a "good divorce" helped to start and found the postive divorce movement.  Dr. Ahrons will be honored with the SCMA Forrest "Woody" Mosten Star Award for Innovation and Excellence in Family Mediation at the upcoming Southern California Mediation Association's Family Mediation Institute which will be held in Palm Desert, CA on May 20-22, 2022.  Terri is the creator and Chair of this wonderful event and she will be presenting a tribute program to Dr. Ahrons, with our friend and colleague Dr. Debra Dupree, at the Institute.

These books changed the popular thinking of the destructive divorce and paved the way forward for a better understand of what does, and does not, make for a good divorce.  These books, and all the work of Dr. Ahrons, are as relevant and needed today as they were when she first started.  Be sure to listen and come join us in the desert!

More About Terri Breer:

Attorney and Mediator, Terri Breer,

Attorney and Mediator, Terri Breer, has been a licensed attorney since 1985 and has experience as a civil litigator, mediator and collaborative attorney handling divorce, family law, real estate, and business matters. Although she has conducted civil trials involving business, real estate and family law disputes, her practice has been devoted to mediation of family law disputes and other forms of alternative dispute resolution including collaborative divorce methods.  She has written several articles on alternative dispute resolution and the need for change in the current family law adversarial system.  She was Chair of OCBA – Alternative Dispute Resolution Section in 2014.  She has served as Board Member of the Southern California Mediation Association (SCMA) for two terms from 2015 to 2021.   She has led SCMA’s Orange County Professional Development Group and has chaired the SCMA Family Mediation Institute (FMI) in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.

Ms. Breer currently owns and manages Breer Law Offices, a solo law and mediation practice in Irvine and Palm Desert, California.  Her private practice was established first in 1988 as a civil litigation firm focusing on family law, real estate, and business matters.  In 1994 the firm expanded to include family law mediation and in 2004, Collaborative Divorce.  She has mediated hundreds of family law disputes, including divorce, custody, property division, pre-marital agreements, domestic partnerships, and surrogacy arrangements.  Ms. Breer provides legal services as a collaborative attorney in Collaborative Divorce cases and will often use a cooperative team approach when she mediates divorce disputes collaborating with financial planners, child specialists and divorce coaches through the mediation process.  

Ms. Breer is an MCLE provider for the State Bar of California and provides family mediation training for California attorneys, therapists, financial professionals, and mediators through her business, New Day Divorce.  Her training program curriculum focuses on instructing family mediators on the legal issues in divorce, relevant California Statutes, characterization and division of marital property, determining child and spousal support, preparing parenting plans, and document preparation required to process uncontested divorce throughout family law courts in California jurisdictions.

Ms. Breer is active in hosting various networking and educational opportunities for divorce professionals, including South Coast Collaborative Professionals Luncheons and Mixers from 2006 to 2016, and The Attorney Therapist Breakfast Club that was founded in 2017 and meets monthly in Orange County.  Both professional groups bring together professionals who share her commitment to helping families resolve divorce and family disputes cooperatively and outside of the adversarial court system.
