Overcoming Barriers

Palo Alto
Current Grant Project: 
Interdisciplinary Education & Training Campaign for the Family Law Community focused on Children's Resistance of a Parent in High Conflict Divorce Families

Overcoming Barriers utilizes a whole family approach that builds effective co-parenting structures which are in the child’s best interests by: offering an alternative to ongoing litigation; psycho-education and a team of clinicians providing interventions in a safe supported environment outside the comfort zone of “home;” creating recreational activities that foster positive connections between family members, from parallel activities to direct engagement activities; and providing for legal and therapeutic follow-up and aftercare as necessary components to success.
