After his father and I separated, he decided to use the children to try to hurt me. He started accusing me of drinking and taking drugs.
My children turned against me and he used them to spy on me and give him information. They reported that I was taking drugs when I was taking anti-anxiety medication because of the divorce. We were in and out of the endless therapy with no solution in sight. Things seemed to be getting worse and worse. My ex always told me I was crazy and so the kids started doing the same thing. They never had to be responsible in his house and so they wanted and loved the freedom to come and go, and finally they all went to see their father one by one. I was heartbroken and fell further into depression, anxiety and stress. I had almost given up. I was afraid to take the medication I had to take because my ex kept taking me to court and saying I was a drug addict. He had my youngest, who was only 12 at the time, testify in court that he had seen me “slap pills.” That was the terrain for me.
I was placed in a supervised visit with my children for which I had to pay and yet I had done nothing wrong. I went to a Facebook group where I felt sorry for myself and posted a desperate request for help. I asked for someone who could help me, I had been a mother who stayed at home, my ex was a very rich businessman, and he had taken everything and now even my children. All I wanted was to be able to see my children again. Someone in the group sent me free videos that the Conscious Co-Parenting Institute had published about the resolution of custody. I watched the videos and contacted them immediately. I find it hard to believe in my luck. Dorcy personally coached me through the darkest days of my life. It brought a new perspective to the situation. She understood what was going on and she explained how my children experienced divorce and even more so alienation. She helped me understand that my children didn`t hate me.
It was difficult at first because they told me they hated me all the time. She told me to believe it wasn`t true. She knew that she herself was once separated and she had said the same thing to her father several times. The moment I changed the way I approached divorce was the moment when everything changed. Dorcy taught me how to prove that the charges against me were lies. The last time I went to court, I was very different. I went to court from a place where I was empowered, as opposed to a place where I felt defeated. Everything has changed. As I was accused of taking drugs, Dorcy advised me to do random drug tests and bring them to justice instead of waiting for the other party to throw the lies in court and I avoided the conflict, Led with the truth and showed the judge that I was not using drugs and not even alcohol. I explained that in the past, in the first days of my divorce, etc., I had taken anti-anxiety medications.
What I mean is that Dorcy was masterful at understanding what was going on, my ex patterns of behavior that he used to destabilize and restrain me. Once I could see it, I was able to go through the process and get the protective separation needed to find my children. They were 13, 15 and 17 years old. We are all together and my eldest is now in college and my middle child is soon on his way to college. They now have a relationship with both of us. Nothing has really changed with his father except that he has remarried and doesn`t seem so interested that he thinks he lost. He rejected the children and they are able to balance the relationships with both of us. The skills we learned on the High Road helped us in all our relationships. If you have the chance to work with Dorcy and follow the High Road program, I would. I never thought that reuniting with my children would never have been possible, but it works. It makes so much sense to me to know why my reunification efforts failed, at least I understand that now. This article is priceless for those who go through the reunification process.
Thank you Karen! Bobi Reunification Therapy is designed to repair a parent-child relationship that has been disrupted during or after a conflicting divorce. Typically, a non-custodial parent applies to a court for reunification therapy after one or more children have stopped following a court-agreed or ordered parenting plan. The custodial parent can claim that the children simply do not want to see the non-custodial parent, and the non-custodial parent can charge the custodial parent with the “parental alienation.” This week we begin our reunification training in Belgium, where we will deliver to a small training group in Ghent at the end of April/May. .
