We have recently updated our session policies and Joint Custody Consent Form for minor children.
PPC has different protocols for children 14 or younger, and for teens 15+. For children 14 & under, the first session is with the parents/caregivers only. Parents of teens 15+ are encouraged to attend the first part of the first session together and determine with the therapist what is the best process to follow going forward.
By law, we must also be aware of the custody arrangement between the biological parents, and have signed documents on file before sessions with a child can take place.
Please see our Resources section for the updated policy and consent form HERE.
