This chapter explains the Overcoming Barriers approach drew from existing treatment models used with separating and divorcing families and developed an innovative, immersion-type whole-family intervention that includes group therapy, psychoeducational groups for parents and children, and various iterations of family therapy. The chapter identifies the essential and unique features of the Overcoming Barriers (OCB) approach, discusses how these can be applied to whole-family interventions in the outpatient settings, and illustrates these applications with case examples.
