Conflict management skills are critical in family restructuring. But where can parents learn these skills?
Traditional family coaching or in-person counseling has been the standard approach to date. However, in-person sessions may not be the right choice for everyone. Everything from scheduling difficulties to safety concerns (especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic) can prevent in-person conflict coaching from being a viable option, let alone an effective one.
For parents seeking alternatives to traditional approaches, online coaching has emerged as an equally effective approach to developing conflict management skills. Read on to learn more about the benefits of online coaching today, as well as Pathways Family Coaching’s unique approach to managing conflict through separation and divorce.
The Importance of Accessibility Today
There’s no way around it: family restructuring is a time-consuming ordeal. As parents currently in the process know, a separation or divorce entails a seemingly never-ending string of appointments, from meeting with lawyers and mental health professionals to making court dates, all while continuing to raise your child. Especially in a contentious, high-conflict scenario, the process can quickly become physically and emotionally exhausting, ultimately hindering your ability to support your family.
COVID-19 adds another layer of difficulty to this already-challenging task. Today, parents working through separation or divorce are forced to consider the safety of themselves and their families when attending in-person appointments. Further, the stress of these uncertain times can exacerbate conflict, not to mention feelings of isolation, alienation, and contempt in your child. Rather than let these feelings fester through a global pandemic, it is critical to continue working towards resolution and healing for yourself and your child.
Online conflict coaching is an accessible, practical solution for developing conflict management skills. Not only will it empower you to continue moving forward with your family through your unique challenges, but it also minimizes the stress (and risk) of in-person appointments. With the current circumstances in the world today, online conflict coaching allows parents to protect their families from both health risks and the long-term traumatic effects of high-conflict separation and divorce.
