Program Narrative: 
High conflict between parents leads to devastating consequences for children, whether or not the parents eventually divorce.  Shielding children from the impact of parental conflict, understanding the dynamics of the conflict, as well as teaching both married and divorced parents to manage their disagreements, needs to be the focus of treatment.  In this presentation, current research, treatment options, and parenting techniques will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize and assess high conflict co-parenting dynamics
  • Describe negative impacts on children and how to better buffer them
  • Summarize treatment options
  • Engage in paradigm shift in therapeutic approach to high conflict parents.

Target Audience: psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students.
