The Complicated World of Family Cutoffs: Causes, Interventions and a Deeper Understanding

Powered by ICP
Family estrangement is extremely widespread, affecting millions of people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or class. As therapists, whether we are working with individuals, couples, or families, the pain and impact is something we regularly encounter in our clinical work. Often there is internal conflict, particular meaning attached to the loss of the relationship(s), and inter-generational damage, that seeps into current relationships. With a deeper understanding of the causes, impact, and paths to repair, we as therapists can intervene to create lasting change and support individuals and families in finding a path forward.

Tracy Ross and Judy Aronowitz take a deep dive into this phenomenon and look at the genogram of a family in order to deepen our understanding of the clinical material and examine the personal, relational, inter-generational, and multi-cultural aspects of this phenomena.

Family Law & Discernment Counseling

Tracy presented Discernment Counseling to a NYC law firm that specializes in family law. This relatively new service is designed for couples on the brink - those who aren't sure if they want to stay together or separate.  It is of particular interest to divorce attorneys as they frequently encounter clients who aren’t certain if the best path forward is divorce or a final attempt at reconciliation. Tracy shared her extensive experience, helping attorneys gain valuable insight into this method and an understanding of which of their clients might benefit from the process; the ultimate goal being a clear and confident decision about the future of their marriage.  In the event that their clients do decide to proceed with divorce the discernment counseling contributes to making that process less litigious and more collaborative.
