We have been offering reunification therapy for many years, as an alternative to stressful and expensive court proceedings for families involved in divorce/conflict. Typically, one or more children from a family will refuse contact with a parent, usually the one that has left the matrimonial home.
Early intervention and support is strongly recommended if children have difficulty adjusting to parental separation/divorce.
Young Adolescent People (YAP's) Program
Adolescents and young adults are in a unique transitional stage where support is often needed to help them deal with the complexities associated with the increasing responsibilities of emerging adulthood. Behavioural difficulties, emotional concerns often have specialized issues that can prevent them from interacting with their peers or achieving success academically.
The program provides young people with the opportunity to consecutively grow their social and coping skills through an evidence-based interactive group. The approach is designed to be interactive and stimulating, allowing young people to participate in group discussions and engage with their peers.
A Clinical Consultation is a time and cost effective way of getting experienced clinical opinion on a range of ordinary, and sometimes not so ordinary, life situations. Such as the examples listed below
Dr. DeCunha provides clinical consultation for complex situations that require the consideration of psychological diagnosis, psychological impact or outcome and treatment recommendations. These consultations are typically requested by Counsel representing their clients in Family or Civil court.
Families Living In Separate Homes
We assist parents separate from each other, but not their children. This is for families that are amicable in their separation. This is a coaching process where parents are guided about what to say to their children, when and how. Each family is unique and each child is unique. We assist parents in optimizing their children’s adjustment to what is potentially an extremely adverse childhood event. It really doesn’t have to be. We truly believe that this is a good investment in the long term stability and adjustment of families transitioning through separation and divorce.
Breakthrough Therapy is an experimental program that requires the involvement and support of your physician.
Early results (Stage II Clinical Trials) of world-wide experimental data appear to be exceptionally promising, such that the American Food and Drug Agency (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have designated this still experimental procedure, “Breakthrough Therapy”. This means that this intervention shows more promising outcomes then therapies currently available for a number of serious psychological disorders such as PTSD, (Treatment Resistant) Depression or Anxiety.
Please note that Health Canada has not made the same declaration, though Stage 2 Clinical Trials are being initiated. Please contact Dr. DeCunha directly for more information.
