Co-Parenting Coaching Workshop

Co-parent coaching is a valuable training and education workshop for couples and who are either divorced or separated and are struggling in their co-parenting relationship. Co-parenting transitional therapeutic coaching is essentially focused on finding solutions to continuing conflict that might remain from an unhappy marriage or relationship. The emphasis of our workshop is ‘what is in the best interest of the child(ren)’. Parents learn to move forward from adversaries to each other to advocates for their children.

The Co-parenting workshop focuses on developing strong co-parenting skills. Parents will develop skills to help them navigate through the hostility and conflict that occur around communication with the other co-parent, scheduling, school activities, holidays, decision making, and new partners, as well as other topics. All participants will be given a workbook to complete throughout the workshop:

SEVEN KEYS TO SOUND CO-PARENTING *

I will respect the other parent’s autonomy with the children.

I will use the “on-duty/off-duty” parent concept.

I will follow the model of a business relationship when dealing with each other.

I acknowledge and respect the importance of the other parent’s relationship with the children.

I will not assume anything; give the benefit of the doubt.

I will Communicate about the children using effective communication tools.

I will make containing the conflict a top priority.
