Counseling Children of Parents in a High Conflict Divorce
A large number of children receive counseling while their parents are involved in high-conflict divorce and custody disputes. Counselors unfamiliar with the unique dynamics among family members of high conflict divorces run the risk of unintentionally being more harmful to their clients than helpful, as well as facing legal and ethical challenges.
This 6 hour training workshop gives mental health professionals the training and tools they need to work effectively with children and families involved in high-conflict divorce. Contact Tracy Masiello for details and information about available continuing education (CE) credits.
Rebuilding Families: The Art of Reunification Therapy
A growing number of family court judges are ordering families to therapy to rebuild estranged parent-child relationships that occur in the midst of high conflict divorces. Many therapists have acknowledged feeling undertrained or intimidated to work with parents and children embroiled in high-conflict divorces with a history of family court involvement, finding that they get in over their head because they are not properly trained to work with the unique features of these families.
In this hands-on, 2-day training, participants will learn effective therapeutic tools and strategies for addressing some of the most challenging family dynamics in order to improve parent-child and co-parent relationships, and achieve healthier family functioning overall. The program will assist participants in understanding the intricacies and complexities of reunification therapy and its families, developing an effective skill set for working with them, and avoiding common pitfalls and ethical issues.
