Our co-parenting groups are especially designed to help co-parents experiencing a high level of conflict. Groups last for 8 weeks, are attended by both co-parents, and facilitated by two leaders. Groups usually include 4 co-parent pairs, allowing participants to learn from the experiences of others having similar challenges in their co-parenting. Each group member is prepared for participation in group by attending an individual intake with one of the group leaders and a joint intake with their co-parent and the two facilitators for their group. At these intake sessions, you will have the opportunity to share your perceptions and concerns, complete several assessments regarding your current co-parenting strengths and weakesses, and learn what to expect from the group.
Throughout the process, facilitators prepare, challenge and support each co-parent in making significant changes in their communication with their child's other parent. A new more business-like communication approach and system is learned that has helped many increase their ability to co-parent their children more effectively. Participants who successfully complete the group are provided with documentation for the court. Any co-parent pairs who continue to struggle after the class are given the opportunity to work with a group leader to gain the skills necessary to more effectively communicate with their co-parent and obtain their certificate of successful completion.
Groups are structured to provide a safe, productive environment for all participants to learn new information about co-parenting and co-parent communication. Below you will find a list of topics that are covered in group as well as the communication tools that are learned and practiced weekly.
