It is with deep sadness that we write to share the passing this week of our beloved friend and colleague, Connie Ahrons.
Connie was an icon of our family law community. Her seminal books, The Good Divorce and We’re Still Family are used in practice and the training room. She was our teacher of family systems practice, therapist for our clients, and a shoulder to lean on. We will miss her deeply.
For over 30 years, the late Connie Ahrons was a friend and colleague with our Co-Founder, Woody Mosten. They lived near each other first in Los Angeles and then in La Jolla. Connie and Woody were co-mediators, co-presenters, were colleagues in the same Collaborative Practice Group and most recently in 2019, they put on a 2-day workshop on Effective Interdisciplinary Teamwork in which they presented a Lawyer-Therapist model of mediation that they had co-created (link to materials)
The Mosten Guthrie Family mourns the passing of Connie Ahrons and will remember her and our faculty teach from her seminal writings for years to come.
