Making Divorce Work: A Clinical Approach to the Binuclear Family

by Constance Ahrons
In this compelling video, renowned therapist Constance Ahrons demonstrates her groundbreaking approach to working with divorced families, with an emphasis on helping ex-spouses and new spouses effectively manage their shared parenting obligations. 


Making Divorce Work: A Clinical Approach to the Binuclear Family
In a time when fifty percent of American marriages end in divorce, therapists frequently encounter families struggling with the aftermath. This video depicts a series of productive and poignant therapy sessions with an entire binuclear family: the divorced mother and father, their two sons, and the new wife of the children's father. Dr. Ahrons aptly demonstrates how, over time, she brings these reluctant family members together to begin forging a more agreeable, cooperative approach to parenting.
