Divorce and Mediation in Sweden

© 2011 By Bill Eddy, LCSW, Esq.

I just gave an all-day seminar to approximately 300 family law social workers in Sweden who do divorce mediations and evaluations. Sweden does not have weapons screening at court (because they can’t have weapons in the cities) and only about 7% of cases even go to court (closer to 15-20% in U.S.). But they also have domestic violence, abused and alienated children. So they were very interested in learning about methods for handling high-conflict families. Beautiful people! Beautiful country!
