High-conflict co-parents destroy their children. Torn between both parents and being forced to lie—or take sides—these children become depressed, anxious, stressed and get in trouble. They suffer from grief, fear of abandonment, anger, resentment and are afraid to love one parent while with the other parent. As clinicians, we are seeing more and more of these cases.
Join high-conflict family expert Monica Johns, LPC, NCC, and learn how to firmly, yet positively, push co-parents out of their enmeshed, negative relationship and move into a new, healthier type of structure. You will leave the day with specific tools to guide co-parents past their hostility, anger, revenge, manipulation, resentment, guilt, and grief, which will have a direct, positive and immediate impact on the children.
Attend with an open mind and a willingness to challenge old techniques in working with high-conflict families. Leave with a deeper insight into the psychology of high-conflict families and how they attempt to manipulate you and other professionals. Your new knowledge will open doors for your clients as well as new doors for other professionals seeking your expertise.

In her private practice, she works primarily with high conflict families, pre and post separation and divorce, where the co-parenting relationship is destructive and the children are suffering.

She continued her career providing intensive in-home services, drug and alcohol counseling, and mental health crisis counseling for at-risk children and their families.
