SMART Telehealth Reunification Service
Restoring Divorce Poisons
Restoring Parental Alienation is the main focus of Reunification Therapy. SMART methods helps to heal traumatic triggers and improve family communication and systems. Parental alienation (PA) profoundly affects both children and alienated parents. Children of PA are at increased risk for future trust and relationship issues, depression, and substance abuse. For a rejected parent, the pain is excruciating.
Trauma from Alienation
The impact of child traumatic stress can last well beyond childhood. In fact, research has shown that child trauma survivors may experience:
Learning problems, including lower grades and more suspensions and expulsions
Increased use of health and mental health services
Increase involvement with the child welfare and juvenile justice systems
Long-term health problems (e.g., diabetes and heart disease)
Trauma is a risk factor for nearly all behavioral health and substance use disorders.
There is hope. Children can and do recover from traumatic events, and you can play an important role in their recovery.
A critical part of children's recovery is having a supportive caregiving system, access to effective treatments, and service systems that are trauma informed.

Many of us have experienced traumatic events, such as assault, neglect, and other forms of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse in our life.
The Role of the Therapist
The relationship between the Reunification Therapist and the family participating in therapy is
considered a professional one where the therapist is considered the “provider” and the family
is considered the “client.”
The provider should not be confused with Custody Evaluators, Parenting Time Expeditors, or
Parent Consultants or other 3rd party mental health providers. Therefore, providers do not
evaluate or make recommendations for parenting time, custody arrangements, or other similar
legal matters, as this would be outside of their scope of practice. Providers are only qualified to
make therapeutic recommendations pertaining to the Reunification Therapy process.
