Parallel Parenting Facilitation

In cases of high conflict, family violence or other circumstances that prevent parents from effectively and safely communicating directly related to parenting values and decisions, CTS’ skilled clinicians are available to provide Parallel Parenting Facilitation.This model utilizes the clinician as the conduit of information and allows the parents in conflict to disengage from each other and minimize their direct communication around difficult topics. When emotions are high, real time and in person communication may not always effectively resolve the issue in question. In addition to in person sessions with parents individually, CTS utilizes tools such as Our Family Wizard to help parents establish protocols and parameters around their communication, allowing parents to individually focus on their children free from the distractions and stress associated with high conflict separation.
