Participation in reunification therapy with parent and child can result in a number of benefits, including improving interpersonal relationships with your child(ren) and resolution of the concerns. Working towards these benefits requires effort on your part and your active involvement, honesty, and openness in order to change. You and your child (if age-appropriate) will be asked for your feedback and views on progress and other aspects of reunification therapy. You will be asked to respond openly and honestly. This may be harder for your child to do. It is understood that it certainly may be difficult to you, as well, as the parent.
Sometimes more than one approach can be helpful in dealing with a situation. Some assumptions or perceptions may be challenged or different ways of looking at, thinking about, or managing situations proposed that may feel upsetting. You, as the parent, may feel challenged or disappointed. Remember that sometimes a decision that is in the best interest of the child may be disappointing for one or both parents. Positive changes in relationships will sometimes happen quickly, but more often takes time and patience on your part. The emotions of the child will be put first and the pace of the session and advice will be based on their needs.
