Attorneys and Psychologists
We have continuously found that our
clients do better in resolving their legal difficulties because they are empowered to make
better choices in their cases. Our clients overwhelmingly report that their relationship
with their children has greatly improved as well as their understanding of the other
parents position. We have found that a significant number of cases are settled
without having to go through painful and risky court proceedings. You often say when
people know better, they do better. You are so right!
Custody litigants are lost in a sea of lawyers, laws, evaluators and
strong emotions. Many lawyers do not have time and/or are not qualified to teach parenting
skills and the behavior of our clients and the problems of their children make this gap in
their education apparent during litigation.
I have spoken at Dr. Majors class several times and have had the
opportunity to sit in on her lectures. Not only does Dr. Major teach a great deal of
valuable information to custody litigants, she communicates in a way that is interesting,
enjoyable and easy to retain the information. Here visual aids and accompanying materials
are clear, thorough and readable.
I first learned of Breakthrough Parenting from a client of mine who was embroiled
in a nasty custody battle with his estranged wife. My client attended Dr. Majors
class on a weekly basis. He had limited visitation with the young minor child based on
domestic violence allegations made against him by mother, who was a drug abuser. The long,
drawn out battle finally concluded with my client awarded primary physical custody of his
daughter and mother awarded limited, supervised visitation.
Your work in preparing our clients who are going through psychiatric
evaluations has been extremely valuable. They have learned how the evaluation process
works, what the evaluator is looking for and how to prepare. This has been reassuring to
them, and as a result, they have presented themselves in a better light than they would
Thank you for all the hard work you do with our clients, especially our
clients who refuse to take responsibility for their situation. Your course helps me in my
practice of law because it offers my clients a chance to learn that they cannot play the
role of "Victim", and that they must take responsibility for making positive
changes in their lives and the lives of their children.
Although some clients often start out in litigation, after attending
your program they are better able to resolve their issues without further litigation.
Whether or not my clients issues are due to their inability to relate to their
children, or to problems they encounter with the court and the litigation process, you
class helps them focus on what is most important the children.
City Attorney and Former Mayor of Los Angeles
Permit me to take this opportunity to extend the appreciation of
the Los Angeles City Attorneys Office for all the invaluable assistance and guidance
you have provided us in the development and implementation of the Los Angeles City
Attorney Parenting Program (CAPP). Not only have you provided us with a vast amount of
expertise and advice in the development of the Program but have made yourself available to
our staff on an almost 24-hour basis to respond to the many difficult and unanticipated
issues that seem to arise in this most complex area of social improvement
Clearly, you have become a national leader in the field of parental
responsibility and training and for this we commend you. But more importantly, you
continue to lend your guidance and expertise to both the private public sector, thus
implanting the concepts of parental responsibility and training as a permanent part of our
modern American value system. It is because of your selfless dedication to parenting and
the many benefits it provides to our society that we in the City Attorneys Office
wish to extend our appreciation to you and hope that you will call upon us in the event
that we may assist you in your most valuable work.
