Our classes are appropriate for both divorcing parents and parents who were never married.
We offer a co-parenting class, Children in Between, and a special class for high conflict parents, After the Storm.
Please note: The Court does not allow parents to attend the same class together. Each parent must attend a separate class.
The classes use a mix of discussion, videos, group work and workbook activities, designed to maintain the interest and attention span of adults. Click here for schedule or to register.
Children in Between focuses on several key areas:
1-Children in the Middle: Parents learn to recognize how they may put their children in the middle of parental conflicts, how to minimize doing this and how to coach their children to let them know when they feel caught in the middle.
2- Communication Skills: Using “I” messages to minimize defensive arguments, staying on one topic at a time, and learning how to actively listen to the other parent.
3- Conflict Resolutions Techniques: Focusing on needs vs. positions, using good communication skills, avoiding deadly topics, etc.
After the Storm is for high conflict cases. It includes all of the information from the Children in Between, and also adds guidelines for conflict management and parallel parenting as well as skill development and detailed practice exercise to help parents implement skills to reduce their conflict.
