Reunification therapy is sometimes mandated by court systems in order to repair the parent-child relationship during divorce or custody battles, typically in situations where some type of parental alienation is present. Typically, reunification begins with a needs assessment, where court documents are reviewed and a treatment plan is made, followed by an initial therapy appointment with each parent and child separately. Then, the therapist spends time with the alienated parent and child in order to try to address and repair the broken relationship. Therapy aims to break down any inaccurate negative images the child has of the alienated parent and lessen feelings of anger and disappointment for both parent and child.CTA MFP png
