After receiving her master’s degree in Alternative Dispute Resolution, Lois Tarter worked as a Mediator for the City Attorney’s office in Los Angeles. She noticed how anger and hostility were major stumbling blocks in the completion of divorce settlements. Lois was married for many years and ended up going through a divorce. She successfully navigated the divorce process, including therapy, came out the other side and is now happily remarried. During her divorce, she learned many life lessons. Lois feels that while the divorce process is certainly a difficult time in someone’s life, it can be a re-birth and an opportunity to find oneself again. She offers her unique insight on her daily blog Yourdivorceday.com. Lois' upcoming book "The Divorce Ritual" will be released in Fall 2011.
