Parents and Children in Divorce

What is Parents and Children in Divorce?

Divorce is as difficult and challenging a transition for children as it is for parents. This five-hour seminar will help you parent your children through this transition and adjust to the effects of divorce. Through discussion, video, role playing, and workbooks, licensed professionals help parents explore the needs of children in divorce and develop practical coping strategies.
