A Recap of The NADP's Split film screening event held at Savor Cinema in Fort Lauderdale, FL, on September 22, 2016.

 


 

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the near future divorce experiences for families can be drastically different thanks to a movement among some trail-blazers who believe families going through divorce should have a softer, gentler landing.

The National Association of Divorce Professionals is pioneering a change in the divorce experience.

The National Association of Divorce Professionals is leading this movement. NADP's in-person and online platform brings together all divorce industry professionals who believe in educating and networking with each other in order to better serve their clients.

Whether its conscious uncoupling, mediation or litigation, NADP chapter founders and members believe that a smoother transition is possible for those divorcing.

"It takes a village to get a couple divorced," says NADP Co-Founder Vicky Townsend. "We bring that village together.”

The NADP creates a unique collaborative environment. At monthly meetings, chapter members share their expertise with each other through presentations called “NADP EDTalks.” For example, an attorney learns from an accountant how recent tax changes may affect their client. Or, a real estate professional learns from a psychologist the affects that staging a home may have on a couple’s young children.

In fact, psychotherapist and NADP Boca chapter member, Alexia McLeod, recently applied knowledge she gained during an “NADP EDTalk” to assist a client through a difficult situation.

“My patient was having a difficult time coping with the stress of her finances. I was able guide her to ask the right questions in regards to her divorce settlement and capital gains taxes. She took my referral and had the property analyzed. This advice kept her from ending up with a tax liability.”

“If we, as an industry, can help couples get through divorce with as little damage to their relationship as possible, we can save the next generation," says NADP Aventura Chapter Director and Family Mediator, Denise Tamir.

“Children are always the collateral effect of everything in divorce. That’s why we must work together to change the experience of divorce for all involved," says NADP Co-founder and Communication Skills Coach, Liz Becker. "Already, both NADP members and the families they serve are benefiting from this synergy."

Fort Lauderdale, (September 10, 2015) – There is a new trend in the divorce industry. The professionals who hold the familieshands going through the divorce process are CONSCIOUSLY focusing on making the impact of the split less traumatic for the children involved.


The National Association of Divorce Professionals and its members are at the forefront of the trend leading the movement to change the way families experience divorce. NADP founders, Liz Becker and Vicky Townsend say whether its conscious uncoupling, mediation or litigation, they believe that a smoother transition is possible for those divorcing and that families going through the process should have a softer, gentler landing.


“This is the boomerang generation,” says Denise Tamir, Family Mediator and Director of The National Association of Divorce Professionals in Aventura, FL. She says the peak of the divorce rate was in the 1970’s. “Most of the kids who are now adults are scared because their parent’s divorce was horrible. Now, as parents they don’t want to do to their children what they feel their parents did to them. So, they do what they can to save the marriage but when they can’t, they’re looking for alternatives and divorce professionals who are able to understand how to minimize the damage.”


NADP Co-founder and Communication Skills Coach, Liz Becker says, “Children are always the collateral effect of everything in divorce. That’s why we must work together to change the experience of divorce for all involved."


Becker and Townsend say the NADP and the movement they’ve started in Florida and working to expand nationwide, was partially inspired by a documentary called “Split”; a film that captured the experience of divorce and provided an authentic view of divorce through children’s eyes.


The NADP and its members believe that they can create change in the industry by changing the way they approach and manage each individual client.


"It takes a village to get a couple divorced," says NADP Co-Founder Vicky Townsend. "We bring that village together.”


The NADP is hosting a screening of the film “SPLIT” on Thursday, September 22nd, 6-9 PM at Cinema Paradiso, 503 SE 6th Street, Fort Lauderdale FL 33301.
(See invite attached)


 

Following the screening there will be an expert panel discussing the impact of the divorce process on children and how professionals can make it less traumatic and painful for a child.


(The press is invited to the screening. Photo, video and interview opportunities are available upon request. Please be sure to email your request and RSVP to Media@TheNADP.com)


Becker and Townsend say divorce professionals must be more conscious of affects that divorce has on their clients and their children long after they’ve gone through the process.


The NADP's in-person and online platform brings together all divorce industry professionals who want to learn from, and network with, each other in order to better serve their clients.

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS:


Vicky Townsend:


Vicky is the co-founder and CEO of the National Association of Divorce Professionals, TheCafeD.com, a website dedicated to supporting men and women going through the divorce process, as well as founder and CEO of Inspiration University, a company that is dedicated to helping women grow their business through education, coaching, and networking opportunities. Through Inspiration University, Vicky was able to help thousands of women across South Florida grow their business and increase their bottom line profitability. Vicky’s events have inspired, motivated and informed women entrepreneurs to be their best and create the life they want. She has had a strong career in sales and marketing with several successful businesses. Vicky’s experience in producing high-level and highly-attended events, as well as creating specialized networking groups, has been instrumental in development and success of the National Association of Divorce Professionals.


Vicky volunteers in several charities and their boards, including SHUZZ, a charity designed to give a simple pair of shoes to needy children around the world, Women of Tomorrow, a charity designed to reach and mentor at-risk teenage girls.


Liz Becker:


For the past 22 years, unbeknownst to her, Liz Becker has actually been rehearsing in various plays in order to finally find the script that fits her the best. Whether she was corporately executing events along the East Coast for MAC Cosmetics, or independently running her own production company, she realized early that effective communication was a key aspect of success both in her personal and professional life. When her son was three years old, she successfully navigated through a divorce and realized shortly thereafter where her true calling was.


By combining her diverse life experience and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Training, she established a private practice as a communication skills coach and trainer specializing in divorce and parenting. As a result, she now finds great reward in educating people on how to best cope with their own situations and provide them with unique tools and techniques to achieve positive change in their lives. Having a strong personal commitment to teaching parents and children to have better communication skills and higher emotional intelligence, she created the ‘Parenting with Results’ program.


Liz has had the pleasure of speaking at various conferences such as the Women’s Success Summit, the Divorce Expo, The annual Dispute Resolution Center Conference, Children First Expo, and has also been a repeat expert panelist on Huffington Post Live.

 

After working in the Divorce Industry for the past eight years, Liz realized the absence of an association that unites and supports all of the professionals who serve the divorce clientele. She and her partner, Vicky, have successfully figured out how to fill that gaping hole and are thrilled to have launched the National Association of Divorce Professionals.
