This chapter addresses the importance of collaborative teams in addressing the needs of court-involved families. Families may have a number of mental health and other service providers addressing complex family needs, who may unintentionally become caught up in the dynamics of family conflict if there is not adequate coordination among them. Creating and managing effective professional teams requires a highly qualified team leader, who may be a parenting coordinator or a judicial officer who has the time and expertise for detailed case management. This chapter describes issues to consider and a model for collaborating with attorneys, selecting and working with existing mental health providers, and resolving issues and conflicts that may arise among professionals and nonprofessionals engaged with the family system. It provides guidance to sensitively managing the sharing of information and to address compliance interventions to increase the effectiveness of services.
