About the Course:
Lynn Louise Wonders shares the benefit of her years of experience as a child play-therapist, particularly as it pertains to child clients whose parents are going through a high conflict divorce. The book describes characteristics of high conflict divorce that distinguish it from more typical divorce cases, the challenges it presents for therapists and the children they serve, and how the therapist can recognize that a family’s situation is likely to be high conflict. Wonders outlines strategies and protocols that allow the therapist to preserve the integrity of the therapeutic relationship with the child client, that prepare and protect the therapist if summoned to appear in court, and that help therapists care for their own mental health.
This course is based on the book, When Parents Are at War; A Child Therapist’s Guide To Navigating High Conflict Divorce & Custody Cases created by Lynn Louise Wonders in 2019.
