How Does New Ways for Families Work?
A structured parenting skills method designed to reduce the impact of conflict on children in potentially high-conflict cases. Available in Book and DVD, New Ways for Families® can be used whenever a parent or the court believes one parent needs restricted parenting (supervised, no contact, limited time), at the start of a case or any time a parent requests restricted parenting including after the divorce or separation. This method emphasizes strengthening skills for positive future behavior (new ways), rather than focusing on past negative behavior while still acknowledging it. Contact us for more information about completing the training and receiving a Certificate of Completion.
