A unique, evidence-based treatment manual for repairing parent–child relationships

Childhood problems are often related to and worsened by the disintegration of the family structure, whether through parental separation and divorce, military service, or incarceration. Reunification therapy is a therapeutic process incorporating different empirically based methods (CBT, humanistic, and systemic) to help repair relationships between parents and children and restore not only physical contact but also meaningful social, emotional, and interpersonal exchanges between parents and children.

This unique manual, bringing together the vast experience of the author, outlines the many situations numerous families currently face and why the need for reunification therapy exists. The therapist works firstly with the individual family members and then with all the family in conjoint sessions.

The manual expertly guides clinicians through pretreatment decisions and processes to enable them to decide where, when, and in what form reunification therapy is appropriate, taking into account ethical, legal and special family issues. Detailed chapters outline the structure and issues for the individual and conjoint sessions, as well as a step-by-step treatment plan template. Additional tools in the Appendix enable clinicians to monitor and effectuate change.

Praise for the book

"Although written primarily for the mental health professional, this is an excellent primer for family law attorneys seeking to gain a real command of the subtleties and nuances of this highly sensitive subject matter. Written in plain, easily digestible language, Dr. Faust provides a thorough and thoughtful road map to first understanding the nature of the breakdown in the parent–child relationship, the spectrum of its root causes, and methodologies for the most accurate assessment before arming the reader with detailed, step-by-step approaches to remedying this painful and heart-wrenching schism in the nuclear family. As an attorney practicing exclusively in the area of marital and family law for nearly 30 years, I am thrilled to finally have an authoritative resource that I can rely on when counseling clients and educating the courts on issues involving fragmented families."
Peter L. Gladstone, Esq, President of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Florida Chapter; Former Chair of the Family Law Section of the Florida Bar

"This book is an extremely helpful addition to the small body of literature that addresses a very difficult family therapy issue – repairing ruptures in parent–child relationships. Dr. Faust offers a road map for reunification therapy in multiple contexts, applying developmental psychology and evidence-based practices to this vexing issue, and sharing practical tools to help clinicians apply treatment protocols. This is a must-read for any clinician providing reunification therapy."
Robin M. Deutsch, PhD, ABPP, Director of the Center of Excellence for Children, Families and the Law, William James College, Newton, MA

"A powerful resource for those professionals assisting in the process of reunifying parents with their children. Dr. Faust writes with clarity and common sense."
Alfred J. Horowitz, Circuit Court Judge in the Family Division, Fort Lauderdale, FL
