The family coach’s role and intervention framework
The family coach’s work at Petit Pont consists of observing the difficulties that a child, a parent or a responsible adult close to the child present in a context of separation, and proposing concrete ways of helping them, with several follow-up sessions, if necessary. For example, he/she can provide support to families who having difficulty with the announcement of separation, post-separation changes, or co-parenting.
Limitations of intervention: The family coach does not do psychotherapy
Respecting conditions set out above, the approach may involve different aspects:
- Collecting information from child and parent
- Observing the child at home
- Interventions in the home and recommendations to the parent
- Follow-up at home or at the office
