The Doppler effect is the change in frequency or wavelength of a wave for an observer who is moving relative to the wave source. A common example of Doppler effect is the change of pitch heard when a vehicle sounding a siren or horn approaches, passes, and recedes from an observer. Compared to the emitted frequency, the received frequency is higher during the approach, identical at the instant of passing by, and lower during the recession. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doppler_effect. The Doppler effect usually is applied to sound or light waves but why not apply it to the emotions of divorce and mediation. Usually couples have a higher emotional frequency when they approach each other and a lower emotional frequency when they recede from each other. In mediation we try to help couples understand this and that things will get better once the case is resolved and both parties start to recede from each other.
