Family Reintegration Assessments and Therapy
Reintegration or Reunification Therapy is a therapeutic intervention for separated families when children find difficulty visiting and spending time with a parent. Through assessment of the family system, a mental health professional with advanced training on parental alienation and reunification, interviews all members of the family system, and reflects the dynamics that contribute to a "favored parent" and "rejected parent" dynamic. The severity of influencing factors and contributions to the level of risk of alienation or rejection of a parent, often determines the intervention and use of a treatment team to work with the family system. Reintegration/Reunification therapy is not "client-centered" and is mandated through a court order that stipulates the cooperation of both parents, as well as the court's expectation of treatment goals and interventions. In many cases, reintegration therapy is not insurance reimbursable.
