Book Review - Overcoming the Co-Parenting Trap

Essential Parenting Skills When a Child Resists a Parent by John A. Moran Ph.D., Tyler Sullivan & Matthew Sullivan Ph.D.

Overcoming the Co-Parenting Trap helps parents understand the reasons why some children resist a parent during divorce—a reality that touches many families.

Combining years of experience in intensive work with families struggling with parent-child estrangement, Overcoming Barriers’ first publication offers practical insight on two central questions:

• Why does a child resist contact with a parent?

• How can I best support my child to have healthy relationships with both parents?

This guide details practical strategies for working through the significant challenges both parents may experience with a resisting child. Common scenarios and concrete solutions are presented both for preferred parents and resisted parents.
