Parenting Coordination: A New Frontier for Professional Counselors

High conflict families make up a relatively small percentage of the 1.2 million divorces that occur each year in the United States. Yet, these families also seem to utilize the lion's share of resources available through the courts for conflict management. Parenting coordination is an out-of-court intervention designed to facilitate communication between feuding parents, manage conflict, and keep children out of the middle. Due to their unique training and holistic approach, professional counselors are well situated to serve as parenting coordinators with high conflict parents during and after divorce. However, parenting coordination remains a relatively untapped market for counselors. This workshop will focus on unique character traits associated with high conflict families, offer an overview of the parenting coordination role, and highlight why professional counselors are well suited for the role.
