One of the most frustrating constants we see in Divorce Mediation is that a surprising percentage of the children involved will have adjustment issues that will need to be addressed by a an outside specialist. It’s a difficult decision point to face as I can bear witness to in my own life.
Now matter how amiable the atmosphere may be, somekids are going to have a tough time with the divorce and its personal consequences. These conflicts will continue so the tone that is set will be important in the years, and with the adjustments, to come as situations change.
The therapists I work with emphasize the importance of not hesitating to make a call, explore situational options, and talk to someone. It’s only through a dialogue that you will find the right person for your child and for you. Your insurance will dictate your institutional choices but there may be private avenues to explore that are accessible through personal connections.
