Reunification Therapy

Reunification therapy is a process in which a qualified therapist works with the whole family reuniting estranged or alienated parents with their child or children, usually due to an extended separation, divorce, or custody dispute.

Sometimes this may be the result of parental alienation. It could be due to a pathological attachment to an abusive parent or enmeshment with an emotionally needy parent who likely struggles with their own attachment issues. In other cases, it may be a rejection of the estranged parent because of past abuse, absence, neglect, or simply the failure to facilitate a bond or attachment to the child.

 

In all cases, the goal of reunification therapy is to help both parent and child develop a closer, healthy, and secure attachment. Most often, reunification is a court-ordered intervention to protect the child from developing any lifelong difficulties. If parental alienation can be determined, then the therapist will work to end parental alienation tactics by the alienating parent in the reunification process. The goal is to have all parties involved as children do much better with both parents being involved with the process.

Church Candles

Are you having difficulty finding a therapist that fits or respects your world views? Are you wanting to integrate your faith and spirituality into your therapy sessions? While I do not replace the need of a good pastor. I can help you integrate positive virtues and values with spiritual direction. The way I deal with people of opposing views is that I find common ground in the natural virtues that they wish to increase and live out and integrate the client's beliefs and faith to accomplish these goals.
