NOV 2018 Divorce Salon

Connect Family Law is continuing its ongoing series of “Divorce Salons”, a resource for individuals dealing with separation or divorce. Combining the best of a speaker series and a meet-up group, these Salons offer participants both a learning opportunity and the chance to connect with others who are going through similar experiences.

Alyson Jones has been invited to the November 27th Salon where she will share the knowledge and experience she has gained after decades of working with families and children of divorced parents. Alyson will be joined by her colleague, Child and Family Therapist, Ida Harvey. Together, they will provide an overview of the Parent-Child Relationship Continuum and discuss reasons why a child might be resistant to contact with a parent (from alignment, to enmeshment to estrangement to alienation).

Salon attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions, and to contribute as much (or as little) as they feel comfortable. For more information, visit the Connect Family Law website.
