More than 15 states now offer marriage or its equivalent to same-sex couples, and many lesbian and couples in other states are cohabiting in long-term relationships.  Many of these partnerships will end, and mediation is an ideal method for resolving the inevitable conflicts, especially given the legal uncertainties surrounding these disputes.  This workshop will explore the challenges of becoming legally and culturally competent to handle these conflicts, and demonstrate the practical and psychological approaches that are most effective.   The workshop will explore scenarios involving financial as well as parentage disputes, and will be of value to therapist, lawyer and community mediators.
