Co-Parenting

Court approved Group & Individual programs for co-parenting. Parents will learn improved communication and conflict resolution strategies to raise their children even though they are divorced, separated or no longer living together.

A Co-Parenting Class is highly recommended when couples separate or divorce as strong emotions can run high and everyone wants to ensure their children are not negatively affected. Courts can also recommend, or even direct parents to attend co-parenting classes in some situations and they look favorably on parents who are serious about learning how to protect their children from parental conflict. Our cooperative parenting group prepares you for this change and provides you with necessary tools to support your children effectively and deal with your ex-spouse or partner.

Objectives of Co-Parenting Group

  • Guide parents in shifting their roles from partners to co-parents.
  • Educate parents regarding the impact of parental conflict on their child’s development.
  • Help parents identify their role and contribution in conflict while increasing impulse control.
  • Teach parents anger management, communication and conflict-resolution skills.
