Friday Night 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
One the first night of your certification workshop, you are invited to talk about the affects of divorce on you and your children; how unresolved feelings of grief, anger and trauma are often at the root of conflicting co-parenting. You will learn why co-parenting can be so difficult, and take home new tools to start a more peaceful relationship with your child's other parent. Parents also learn about the physiological affects of divorce on kids and what you can do to minimize the negative impact of a a high-conflict divorce for them. Imagine...if your child had a time machine and could go back to future to tell you how she or he saw and felt his parent's divorce, this evening is as close as it gets to that experience! You will find a curriculum filled with insight from a child's point of view, sharing with his Mom and Dad what she wants and needs most from their parents through their separation.

On the second day, you learn new ways of expressing feelings in a healthy, productive manner, and essentially, begin to model a new way of communication to your child by improving your communication methods with your child's other parent.
