OCB Approach

The Overcoming Barriers Approach:

  • Is a whole family approach that builds effective co-parenting structures which are in the child’s best interests
  • Offers an alternative to ongoing litigation
  • Includes psycho-education and a team of clinicians providing interventions in a safe supported environment outside the comfort zone of “home”
  • Creates recreational activities that foster positive connections between family members, from parallel activities to direct engagement activities
  • Provides for legal and therapeutic follow-up and aftercare as necessary components to success


  • Children become more free to feel and show connection with both parents
  • Children see parents working together in a safe way
  • Family members understand the roles that each play
  • Participants learn problem-solving skills to apply to difficult situations
