R.E.A.C.H.   RE-unification And Co-parenting in High conflict

The REACH program is primarily focussed on addressing situations where a child(ren) is/are disassociated from a parent due to influences of the other parent or the behaviour of the rejected parent.

REACH can also address separating and divorcing families that have disrupted relationships between parents and children and/or conflicted relationships between parents.

REACH works efficiently with all family members to reduce conflict and provide the best possible family environment for everyone, especially the children.

REACH is available both to families working outside the court system in Mediation and Collaborative Law as well as those who are involved in court processes.

REACH can provide cost-effective, in-depth therapeutic support for separation transitions, independently from or together with liaison to the court or relevant others.

REACH includes:
- Senior child, adult and family therapists;
- Specialists in separation / divorce issues;
- Award-winning, PhD level therapists;
- Parenting Coordinators; and,
- Legal & therapeutic team representatives

How Does REACH Work?

REACH provides therapists for each parent and child(ren), who then work as a team to understand the whole family. REACH provides interventions that can resolve problems related to the separation / divorce, creating the best possible solutions for all family members, especially the children and helping the family to become independent problem-solvers.
The REACH team can include a Parenting Coordinator or Court Designate to provide feedback to the court. REACH therapists do not testify for either parent. Any information that is provided to the court is provided by the Parenting Coordinator / Court Designate who has been briefed by the entire team so as to have a complete and balanced understanding of the whole family.
