Sometimes parents go through a divorce or separation, experience a season of difficulty with financial resources, drug addiction, aggression, conflict, or even abusive behavior. When these lead to legal consequences, parents or children are often mandated by the court to attend some form of psychotherapy.
Court ordered therapy is a legal decision made by the judge to address the individual and familial issues that contributed to the difficult situation. Some families interpret court ordered therapy as a punishment; however, this is an opportunity for positive change. Families can feel caught in ruts for a variety of reasons.
Here at Family Connections Therapy, we offer treatment for individuals and families looking to get out of those ruts. Specifically, we provide therapy for clients who are ordered through Dependency and Family Law Court. Check out these articles offered by Hunter Law Group here in California to learn more about how these court systems work.
