Families in Transition provides services to families experiencing transition due to separation and divorce. Often, the special needs of these families can only be addressed by support for parents and the children. Families in Transition will support the family members in understanding the changes and adjusting to them in ways that can help provide parents and children with more positive post separation experiences. The service provides treatment for children of high conflict divorce and education to parents on the damage caused to children by high conflict divorce with the view to reduce conflict between parents.
