HIGH CONFLICT DIVORCES
Separation and divorce are some of the most common life stressors that families experience, impacting a family for many years. While experiences can vary, high conflict divorce occurs when families experience ongoing conflict in which one or both parents demonstrate(s)
Intense post-separation hostility such as verbal and/or physical aggression;
Strong emotions, including feelings of anger, fear, sadness, frustration, and hopelessness; and/or,
An inability or refusal to communicate or act in a collaborative manner that prioritizes the children’s well-being.
However, it does not have to be that. You can choose to lessen the impact that the separation or divorce has on your family.

Is it Time to Make a Change?
Unfortunately, families with children can never fully divorce from each other as they need to maintain a relationship as parents, placing their children’s needs at the forefront of their divorce or separation. Through the process of family reunification therapy, parents can resolve their hostile parental conflict, allowing them to reunite the entire family in a positive, secure, respectful, and trustful way.
