High Conflict Team & Mediation Kelowna

The High Conflict Team specializes in working with separated/divorced families who may or may not have been court involved. The stress and emotional drain of going through separation/divorce is substantial and when a family is also court involved, the additional stress and pressure can feel enormous and unmanageable. As mediation Kelowna professionals who specialize in working with the courts, working with this population requires additional training and specialized knowledge that our team at Crossroads Collective has. Everybody here is dedicated to supporting families through this difficult time.

    Working with Our Mediation Kelowna Team

    If you are looking into working with our mediation Kelowna Team, know this is not the same as “regular” counselling. We understand the high level of stress you and your family are experiencing, especially if you are dealing with the court system, and the polarizing nature of litigation makes this area very specialized. Our additional training and continuing education is specific to the challenges faced by court-involved families.

     

    Resistance & Refusal Dynamics

    Parental alienation is the well known term used to describe unfortunate instances wherein there are contact issues or resistance/refusal on the part of a child toward a parent. Regardless of what term is used, these challenges often present significant emotional upset and families are at a loss as to how to repair the relationships.

    If a family is unable to overcome the resistance/refusal of the child(ren), therapeutic intervention is needed. Repairing the parent-child relationships and helping the family to experience healthy relationships is our goal. Each family is unique and our team uses a family systems approach that includes several family members.

    When our mediation Kelowna team works with resistance & refusal dynamics, the parents are required to sign a Services Agreement. After the initial inquiry, the next phases include the intake process, establishing treatment goals, and then providing therapeutic interventions that are specific to the goals and the challenges your family is facing.

    Please direct your inquiries to hctcrossroads@gmail.com and specify that you are inquiring about work with the mediation Kelowna Team.
