Episode 15 | Mediation and Adoption with Joy Rosenthal
Hosted by Meredith Shirey & Isaiah Vallejo-Juste
Produced by Rich Hackman
In this episode we chat with mediator Joy Rosenthal about her role as an objective third party helping couples through contentious situations. She surmises that her role is to keep the parties together as much as possible especially in a court judicial system that is not set up for people to voice their fears, and work through conflict. She discusses how the adversarial system built for business isn't what's best for the whole family.
