Get Ready to BIFF Your High Conflict Ex with Bill Eddy on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #160

In this very special episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with the leading high conflict divorce expert in the world, Attorney, Mediator and Therapist, Bill Eddy, who shares the fundamentals of his BIFF Method for managing communication with a high conflict ex!

Whether you are divorcing a narcissist or are embroiled in any difficult relationship, a hallmark of a high conflict case is the flood of hostile calls, emails and texts that are repeatedly sent by one or both of the parties.  This barrage often flows over into social media and into conversations with others.  The constant cycle of conflict is crazy-making and seemingly impossible to control but that was until Bill Eddy and his BIFF method arrived!  With the release of the third book in the BIFF series, "BIFF for Co-Parent Comunication," Bill Eddy helps you to regain a sense of control and peace that will benefit both your life and that of your children.  The BIFF method will help you to craft responses to the hostile communications from your ex that will defuse the conflict and remove you from the cycle.  Simply put, being Brief, Informative, Friendly and Firm (BIFF) is your key to freedom and there is simply no better guide out of the darkness of a high conflict relationship than Bill Eddy!

In this episode Bill shares:

  • The simple logic of being brief, informative, friendly and firm and why it works.
  • How YOU decide what kind of response you will receive from your ex.
  • Why you need to absolutely avoid the 3 A's.
  • A simple substitute for saying "I'm sorry . . ."
  • Why Bill says you should get Miranda Rights before you go on social media.

AND SO MUCH MORE!

This episode is absolute GOLD for anyone experiencing difficulty in communicating with a volatile ex so listen today and start taking your life back one BIFF at a time!
