Reconciliation therapy is a therapeutic process designed to repair severed relationships between parents and children in an attempt to restore not only physical contact, but meaningful social, emotional, and interpersonal exchanges between parents and children.
Various life transitions and challenges can damage or disrupt the parent/chid relationship creating a need for reconciliation. These may include:
Military or occupation
Failure of parent to facilitate a bond or attachment to the child
Inappropriate or severe parenting strategies
The inability to negotiate cultural and value differences
High conflict or divorcing families
Interference by one or both parents

THERAPEUTIC SUPERVISED VISITATION
Therapeutic Supervised Visitation enables an ongoing relationship between the non-custodial parent and their child by facilitating and observing their contact in a safe and structured environment. Therapeutic Supervised Visitation gives parents the opportunity to learn and use appropriate parenting skills with the help of a mental health professional. Unlike Reconciliation Therapy, Therapeutic Supervised Visitation does not assist in the long term goal of achieving a healthy relationship between the non-custodial parent and the child, and are normally a short-term practice.
Often high-conflict families who have a history of violence or abuse and parents with a history of poor parenting skills require the use of Therapeutic Supervised Visitation programs. Rebound is proud to offer this service in order to establish healthy contact in families.

Supervised Visitation allows parents to maintain contact with their children in a community setting. The family members are accompanied by a designated supervisor who will hold a parent accountable for their behavior by ensuring that the parent follows the program policies and procedures, the court order, and the signed service agreement.
Visitation notes are written at the conclusion of each visit. Court reports are written only when requested in writing to RMH. The attorney’s written request must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the court date.

Ms. Short is experienced as a court appointed parent coordinator. Ms. Short specializes in parent coordinating services in infant and early childhood cases. A parent coordinator helps facilitate parent communication while educating the parents about the child’s developmental needs. The parent coordinator typically has the ability to interview all persons involved in the court matter in order to gain a more realistic perspective of the child/families needs. This perspective can aid the court in swift response to urgent situations.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can, in fact, heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes. -EMDR Institute, Inc
