Is This What Happens to Family Mediators Who Burn Out?!?

According to this movie review in the Guardian Unlimited, “Wedding Crashers” is being released today. It’s about two lawyers who practice matrimonial mediation and who, after witnessing the horrors of relationships which have “gone bad”, become phobic about commitments. These 2 Casanovas crash weddings and . . . . Couldn’t Hollywood have chosen a profession other than mediation? Is this the way to educate the publice about mediation? Anyway, prepare yourselves for comments from those who see this movie. It’s tough enough when pro se parties get their legal education from the “Common Law of Television” – what are they going to think [please, at least think!] about mediation?

Have a pleasant weekend!
