We’re happy to report that another Collaborative Law Institute of Texas member is contributing to the Huffington Post, on its often-intriguing Divorce Channel. Linda Solomon, who is a Dallas-based, collaboratively-trained Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a former board member of our organization, co-wrote a recent article on the site addressing divorce and kids.

One of the most important pieces of advice here is not to shy away from using the word divorce.
