COMPREHENSIVE, IN-DEPTH PARENTAL ALIENATION ASSESSMENT: For parents who fear their children are being turned against them ~ or ~ who are being accused of alienating the children from the other parent. Our comprehensive assessments provide an unbiased, objective analysis of the origins and progression of parent/child contact problems. Not all contact problems are due to alienation. There are times when parents own behaviors create the estrangement with their children. Using research-based, defensible diagnostic tools, we are able to systematically root out and diagnose estrangement (due to abuse/neglect/domestic violence and/or substance abuse), parental alienation, or the rare hybrid (where both alienation and estrangement are present). We provide a full and detailed report of our findings at the conclusion of the assessment. Most parental alienation assessments require a court, or agreed, order.
REUNIFICATION SERVICES FOR MILD TO MODERATE PARENT-CHILD CONTACT PROBLEMS or MILD-MODERATE PARENTAL ALIENATION: Services for the whole family. What is the difference between parent/child contact problems and parental alienation? Parent/child contact problems is estrangement for a variety of reasons (lack of contact over time between parent and child, abuse/neglect, substance abuse, etc.). Parent Alienation is the child's rejection or denigration of the target parent for no valid reason. The rejection does not equal the child's experience of that parent. Our reunification program includes a mini assessment to evaluate for estrangement vs. parental alienation. Depending on the nature of the estrangement, individual counseling services may be recommended. Reunification includes carefully coordinated, specialized, weekly family therapy with the child(ren) and the alienated parent. Reunification also includes support/education services, and possible referrals for individual therapy, for the favored parent. Our Reunification program is attended by agreement of the parents or by court order.
INTENSIVE 4-DAY TREATMENT FOR SEVERE PARENTAL ALIENATION: Our 4-Day Intensive treatment program is for families where severe parental alienation has been determined. Our program is in association with Linda Gottlieb's Turning Points for Families Program. Meaning, we are specially trained by Ms. Gottlieb, follow her evidence-based protocols, and participate in on-going consultation with her. Turning Points for Families has successfully reunified over 60 severely alienated children with their target parents. Outcome data is available upon request. Our 4-Day Intensive Program requires the alienated parent and the children to stay together at a hotel or vacation spot, participate exclusively in the treatment (no school or work), and requires a no-contact period with the alienating parent. Our Intensive Program is attended by court order only.
