This chapter presents a rationale for the integration of experiential techniques into family-based treatment for families with parent-child contact problems. It reviews experiential therapies that are employed in intensive family-based interventions for parent-child contact problems, describes particular experiential techniques developed at Transitioning Families, and discusses the integration of experiential techniques into traditional office-based treatment. Play therapy, recreational and nature therapy, equine-assisted therapy, and cooking therapy are discussed. Numerous references.
