The MCFM Family Mediation Journal is the newest publication of MCFM following in a tradition of sharing information about the practice of family mediation in Massachusetts formerly presented in the Family Mediation Quarterly (“FMQ”) and before that, MCFM News.
The MCFM Family Mediation Journal is a periodic publication of MCFM. In it, family mediators share common interests and information. The Journal provides a forum to share knowledge and educate its members and the general public. We have also launched a companion blog on this site: The Family Mediation Blog.
The Journal will be mailed to all MCFM members, all Probate & Family Court Judges, all local Dispute Resolution Coordinators, all Family Service Officers, and all law school libraries in Massachusetts. Jen Hawthorne, with the assistance of Les Wallerstein and Justin Kelsey, MCFM members and board members, will accept and review submissions and edit the Journal. They follow in the footsteps of Les Wallerstein and Kate Fanger, the previous editors.
