OCB Plans for the Future

Overcoming Barriers Plans for the Future

Looking forward we plan on:

Training professionals globally which will give families access to support locally and earlier in the conflict. 

  • We are developing a second mental health online training in collaboration with William James College. Work has already begun on the content and we expect it to be available by the end of 2020.  Stay tuned for updates!
  • Until then, our 28 hour online training entitled High Conflict Coparenting: Interventions for Children’s Alignment and Resistance continues to attract clinicians worldwide.  We’ve expanded enrollment and participation. Next session begins September 1.
  • We’ve spent much of 2018 and 2019 working on a curriculum for Judges and Lawyers. We are developing a multi module online course for 2020 that will serve as a parallel to the popular course for mental health professionals.

Providing Resources for Families and Professionals 

  • A new publication entitled, Overcoming the Alienation Crisis: 33 Coparenting Solutions, to be published in August, 2020, will provide parents with pragmatic tips about how to work as an effective post divorce family keeping the best interests of the children in mind.  This new book is a companion to our very popular coparenting guide, Overcoming the Coparenting Trap: Essential Parenting Skills When a Child Resists a Parent.
  • Additionally a Spanish version of Overcoming the Coparenting Trap: Essential Parenting Skills When a Child Resists a Parent that should be out by end of 2020.

Offering direct services in a different fashion in order to help professionals provide solutions locally.

Ensuring independent program evaluation and oversight of our innovative efforts.

  • Unlike many organizations we subject ourself to independent evaluation of our programs and professional trainings. 
  • As a nonprofit we have a Board of Directors that oversees our work and a program committee that is constantly reviewing and revising Camp procedures and processes as we gain more information/knowledge. In effect, OCB programs and trainings are a result of a group effort.  
  • This distinguishes OCB from others in that our work is a result of a substantial on-going professional assessment based on cutting edge information.
Continuing to create a superb OCB Board and Advisory Council.

OCB is the only organization working in this field that is a nonprofit.  Most others work with just one parent and are also are for profit organizations.  Our Board is hands on and committed to this work for the best interests of the children.   Read about our Team here.   

Solidfying our OCB Vision Statement to reflect our focus on education.
