Co-parenting therapy is a niche practice area that focuses on providing parents with tools to diminish conflict and develop their co-parenting skills before, during, and after divorce. Co-parenting therapists work to fortify parental cooperation with the goal of diminishing the long-term negative effects of parental conflict on children’s mental health. Few clinicians are trained in this area. The author describes this niche area of practice and how she became interested in this challenging and impactful area. She covers the joys and challenges of a practice focused on co-parenting therapy, discusses the business aspects of this niche area, and offers professional advice about pursuing this specialty. Resources are listed to assist interested clinicians.
