The Psychologists at Carter Haave Vandersteen Bateman Vroon have developed a model of intervention for families who experience difficulty during the transition of separation and divorce.This model is an integral component within the full range of alternative dispute resolution interventions. The post separation/divorce intervention is a structured process of:
- Separating the marital issues from the ongoing co-parenting relationship to improve separation/divorce adjustment for all members of the family.
- Presenting the voice of children to their parents to assist in developing parenting agreements designed to meet the realistic needs of parents and children.
- Focusing on the reconstruction and healing of the new family relationships and systems.
Our highly specialized work in this area is gaining recognition among professionals in the legal, medical, alternative dispute resolution, and psychology communities. We can and do make a significant and positive difference in the lives of the children and adults we work with using this model.
Ideally, intervention is most effective when the whole family participates in the reconstructing process. We do recognize, however, that it is not always necessary or feasible for everyone in the family to enter into all aspects of the intervention. In some instances therapy focuses on a subset of the family system.
Psychologists within the firm of CHVBV provide extensive assistance to families during times of transition. We would be pleased to discuss the various aspects of the Post Separation/Divorce Intervention in detail.
