A Look at Separation and Divorce with Peggie Ward

Clinicians, attorneys, and judges are stymied trying to find effective solutions for intractable conflict in families, while children are caught in middle, and mental health and legal systems mired in polarization. Dr. Ward presents clinical and research data from a ten-year history of working with these families in the Overcoming Barriers Family Camp Program. She discusses current understanding of these complex families based on preliminary data collected from 10 years of family camp by Dr. Michael Saini.
