To understand this practical therapeutic intervention, one needs to understand what therapy means through the lens of reunification. From this perspective, therapy is referred to as the process of nurturing change and developing positive filial relationships. This process commences with an identified topic or problem, more accurately referred to as; the reason for estrangement. The primary caregiver (also referred to as the preferred parent), the child, and the estranged parent’s full and uncompromised cooperation is critical to effect positive change in the family system. In our practice, we work with the family members to accomplish positive outcomes.
Any glimmer of hope is a window of opportunity - however small it might seem - and is seized to reunite the estranged parent and child. Through teamwork and mutual trust - which are the fundamental building blocks of a high-quality parent-child relationship - we cultivate strong parent-child relationships.
