This work addresses the issues of co-parenting in the presence of conflictual separation/divorce and of «equal times» of attendance for the minor’s mother and father. In line with the most recent relational developmental systems theories, the authors argue the need, before starting a mediation process, to carry out a correct analysis of both the family context and the level of «mediability» of the conflict. Relating to the equal-time placement, the authors discuss that it might represent only one of the possible solutions in favour of minors and should be evaluated in the context of an adequate adaptive balance between the minor’s resources and the actual potential of the parenting system.
