The Parenting Coordination Program

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Friday, June 06, 2014

For the sake of the children, divorcing parents must continue to communicate with their former spouses in matters of child rearing.  Yet, approximately 20-30% of divorcing parents exhibit high conflict behaviors, creating stress for both adult and child.  Research indicates that unrelenting parental conflict is the single most common cause of poor adjustment in children following a divorce.

Parent Coordination offers divorcing parents a unique service that may be used during the divorce process or years after.  Parents with serious concerns regarding their co-parent may request, through their attorney, the monitoring services of a Parenting Coordinator.  A Parenting Coordinator is a neutral individual working to ensure parental access and protect children from unnecessary stress.

Parenting Coordinators at Psychological Affiliates are licensed psychologists who are trained in child development, mediation, and high conflict.  All Coordinators are trained through the Cooperative Parenting Institute.

What to Expect in Relationship Therapy

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Thursday, November 07, 2013

These days, before many couples decide to call it quits, they undergo couple’s therapy or marriage counseling. In general, no one is excited about the prospect of sitting on a psychologist’s couch and detailing all the problems within a marriage, however, plenty of couples have found relief from their relationship woes by seeking the help of a professional. It is always useful, before jumping into any kind of therapy, to have some idea of what is going to happen.


Most psychologists will ask questions, listening to responses of both spouses, in order to get at the heart of the couple’s problems. For example, a couple may come in saying that they no longer feel the other loves them. Through some pointed questions, a psychologist may determine that they are actually having a problem with communication, not with love.


Even for couples that have already decided to get a divorce, relationship therapy may be advantageous. A therapist will be able to help them navigate their new dynamic, so that they can at least be on friendly terms, especially in cases where the couple shares a child.

In either case, the psychologist will ask questions about the relationship and will suggest topics for discussion and activities that can better the couple’s relationship, whether that couple is still married or is newly divorced.
