  • Are you going through a divorce or separation and have children?
  • Are you experiencing conflict with your former spouse, partner, or other relatives about your children?

If you are dealing with either of these issues, this workshop is for you!

This one time four hour seminar teaches divorcing, separating, and never-married parents ways to minimize the negative impact of divorce or separation on children.  The program also promotes self reflection and an increased understanding of feelings of grief and loss that so often accompany the divorce process. Techniques for navigating the legal implications such as mediation, child support, and visitation arrangements are also addressed. This nationally recognized program is conducted by Master's level mental health professionals.
