 Overcoming Barriers has worked tirelessly over the last decade to Rethink Parent Child Contact problems.  We’ve worked to take the “im” out of impossible and make it possible to impact these difficult, challenging and complex family dynamics.  We’ve addressed this from a multi-pronged vision of:

  • Effective and accessible family centered programs
  • Professional development, consultation and training
  • Education to advance the field of knowledge
  • Awareness of innovative approaches for these families

Overcoming Barriers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that developed and utilizes the Overcoming Barriers Approach, an alternative to on-going, expensive and frustrating litigation.  The Overcoming Barriers Approach is a productive means for families, and the professionals working with them, to address the issues that arise in high-conflict divorces in which a child is resisting or refusing to see a parent.

As Overcoming Barriers has grown from an original program prototype to a national organization working to expand  program options for families throughout the US and Canada, we have recognized the critical importance of training professionals to attaining success in addressing our mission and vision.

Overcoming Barriers’ unique training and resources for professionals enable us to ensure that our strained families have better access geographically and financially to support but from trained and knowledgeable mental health and legal professionals.
