Alienation in Custody Cases: Reunifying Families Through Reconciliation Therapy, Positive Interactive Parenting Therapy, and Self-enforcing Court Orders (Harrisburg)

  • Custody

The Dauphin County Bar Association is hosting a discussion on reunifying families in custody cases on December 10, 2019 from 12:00 PM-1:00 PM.

The program will discuss the need and differences between reunification therapy, family therapy, co-parenting, and positive interactive parenting in custody cases. It will also discuss which cases may necessitate these service (i.e. drug abuse and mental illness) and how families can afford these services when ordered through the court. These therapeutic services will also be compared to custody evaluations.

The program will also discuss drug and alcohol evaluations as well as psychological evaluations and the necessity of following any recommendations from these evaluations. The importance of implementing interim orders that include both parents as well as Court Orders that are self-enforcing (i.e. switch custody after a set number of missed school days or missed custodial periods) will also be discussed.

Dr. Steven Lindenberg, Lynn Brooks and Hilary Vesell will be presenters.

Materials will be emailed to registrants by Monday, December 9, 2019. You may also find them on the DCBA website under the on-line events calendar.
