Dissolution to Evolution: Navigating Your Divorce Through the Consilium® Process by Heidi-Rachel Webb and Julie Kunce Field is a guide for individuals and families facing possible divorce who are looking for an alternative method to the traditional proceedings. Addressing both the legal and psychological aspects of divorce, The Consilium® Process offers a seven-step program that facilitates a healthy transition for long term success post-divorce. Using case studies, Webb and Field make a compelling case on the merits of the system and offer differing, practical examples of application in multiple circumstances in which many might find themselves.

I wish Dissolution to Evolution had come out 13 years ago, as it would have saved me a great deal of headache and assisted me on the path I struggled to find for myself. Heidi-Rachel Webb and Julie Kunce Field are something of revolutionaries in the field of family law. With the release of this book, they are sharing the wealth of possibilities that are open to all, even when a divorce takes a contentious turn. The case study that struck me most was with John and Molly. "Molly’s fear of John became apparent. His verbal abuse was constant, and when I asked her if she feared for her physical safety, she burst into tears. She told me that a few years ago John had grabbed her by the neck and threatened to kill her." Within the book there are cases that appear less volatile, and some that appear more so. This is important as it shows the scope of what can be achieved with the implementation of The Consilium® Process. I can't imagine a person contemplating divorce, a lawyer, a counselor, or anyone else in the field not wanting to consider the application of this innovative and progressive method.
