Your Guide to Court-Involved Parent-Child Relationship Repair Therapy

At Unified Family Therapy, we are dedicated to providing parent-child relationship repair therapy and family systems therapy to families in accordance with the guidelines outlined in Kayden’s Law. We understand the importance of creating a safe and supportive environment for families seeking our services. To help you understand our qualification process, we have outlined the steps below:

Step 1: Initial Consultation

To begin the qualification process, we invite you to schedule an initial consultation. During this consultation, we will gather important information about your family and the specific concerns you would like to address through therapy. This meeting will also provide an opportunity for you to ask questions and learn more about our approach.

Step 2: Legal Considerations

To ensure compliance with Kayden’s Law, we will review the legal requirements that must be met for participation in therapy. Our team will guide you through the necessary steps and help you understand the specific provisions of the law that pertain to the therapy process.

Step 3: Suitability Assessment

After the initial consultation, we will assess the suitability of your family for parent-child relationship repair therapy or family systems therapy. This assessment involves evaluating factors such as the level of conflict, communication difficulties, and other challenges present within the family system. Our goal is to determine if our therapy services are beneficial and appropriate for your specific concerns and goals.

Step 4: Safety Assessment

At Unified Family Therapy, the safety and well-being of all family members are of utmost importance. Before engaging in therapy, we will conduct a comprehensive safety assessment. This assessment is designed to identify any immediate safety concerns and ensure a secure therapeutic environment for everyone involved. If necessary, we will collaborate with relevant authorities or agencies to address any safety issues.

Step 5: Therapy Goals

Once the qualification process is complete, we will work collaboratively with you to define the goals and objectives of therapy. Repairing and improving the parent-child relationship will be a central focus, along with addressing other relevant concerns you may have. Our experienced therapists will guide you in setting realistic and achievable goals based on your family’s unique needs and desires.

Step 6: Therapist Assignment

At Unified Family Therapy, we have a team of highly qualified therapists who specialize in parent-child relationship repair therapy and family systems therapy. Based on the information gathered during the qualification process, we will assign a therapist who possesses the necessary qualifications and expertise to meet your family’s specific needs.

Step 7: Informed Consent and Confidentiality

Before therapy begins, we will explain the limits of confidentiality to all family members involved. It’s essential that everyone understands the circumstances under which confidentiality may be breached. We will obtain informed consent from all participants, ensuring that everyone is aware of their rights and responsibilities within the therapeutic process.

Step 8: Therapy Process

Throughout the therapy process, our therapists will employ a collaborative approach, encouraging open communication and active participation among family members. We will regularly evaluate progress and effectiveness, making adjustments to therapeutic interventions as needed to address emerging issues and challenges.

Step 9: Termination and Follow-up

When therapy goals have been achieved, we will discuss the criteria and process for terminating therapy. Our aim is to conclude therapy in a responsible and respectful manner. Additionally, we will provide appropriate resources, referrals, or recommendations for ongoing support to help sustain the progress made during the treatment.

We hope this information helps you understand the qualification process at Unified Family Therapy.
