Collaborative Divorce: The Child Specialist’s Role

collaborative-divorceA divorce can be one of the most worrisome and emotionally taxing times a couple can experience. While the process and aftermath can be stressful for the spouses involved, it can additionally be incredibly difficult for children.

At Rice Psychology Group, we are devoted to helping the divorce process move in a collaborative and productive way. Our child specialist can act as an advocate for the children involved to help their voice be heard through the process.

A child’s voice can often go unheard in the divorce process. It’s time to listen to their needs.

A Child’s Advocate

As a child specialist, Dr. Rice can act as a neutral advocate who expresses the child’s feelings, worries, interests and developmental needs during the collaborative divorce procedure. This is especially important in helping parents reach a proper understanding of their child’s needs, which can then be used to find the right solution. With our collaborative divorce services, we can assist a child by:

  • Creating a safe environment where the child can comfortably express his/her feelings with each parent.
  • Providing services designed to support the child with the process of adjusting to the aftermath of a divorce.
  • Helping everyone in the collaborative divorce process formulate an adaptable and balanced parenting plan that encompasses every factor of the child’s development.
  • Enabling the progress of co-parenting skills to allow each parent to work together for the benefit of the child’s emotional and developmental necessities.
