Reunification Therapy Primer

Event Description

The Family Law Section business meeting is prior to the CLE at 9:30 a.m. 

All Family Law Section members are welcome and encouraged to attend. The meeting agenda and materials will be sent closer to the meeting date.

Program Description:

Reunification therapy can be a useful tool in high-conflict custody and parenting time matters. But what exactly is reunification therapy? Join us for an informative session with seasoned reunification therapy professionals as we dive into a discussion about the following: 

  • What does reunification therapy really mean?
  • What is the purpose and how does it work?
  • In what cases would reunification therapy be called for/beneficial? 
  • How does the therapist adhere to the court’s order directing reunification therapy? (Do they report to the court?)
  • What makes a practitioner “qualified” to serve as a reunification therapist?
  • Is it common that “reunification therapy” is ordered by the Court, but reunification therapy isn’t possible or isn’t what would be best for the participants? If so, what do you do then?
  • Is a PC needed to make the most out of the reunification therapy?
  • How is the child’s voice reflected in the reunification process?
