Cooperative parenting classes
An 8 week Co-parenting class for families with mild to moderate conflict
Cooperative parenting and divorce is a 8 week psycho educational class, with 16 contact hours. Over the duration of this course, the focus is helping families adjust to the change through divorce, and how to best shield the children form the conflict. The purpose is centered around improving the quality of the parental relationships in families of divorce.
The focus is to:
- transition form spouses to co parents
- help parties to understand the impact of conflict on their children’s development
- identify the conflict and assist in finding resolution and support
- work on anger management, conflict resolution and communication
- supporting the family and helping parents to develop a relationship focused on the best interests of the family, after separation.
This program is recognized by the courts nationwide.
Using the cooperative parenting and nurturing parenting programs, this service helps families to gain therapeutic insight, build skills, and offers support and information as they develop their identity and work through the transition of day to day life as a divorced family.
Therapy designed to help reintroduce an parent into a child’s life after a prolonged period of absence or after incidents of parental alienation. This therapy often includes individual sessions with both parents and children, as well as family sessions.
