Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce - Co-Parenting Seminar

Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce is a video-based seminar designed to minimize the emotional damage that parents cause to their children during and after a divorce. The seminar provides parents with the skills necessary to make child-focused decisions. Parents learn that their behaviors and choices determine how their child will ultimately adjust to the divorce. This seminar is designed to educate parents about children’s issues in divorce as well as the need to value their co-parent and understand the importance of communication between homes. It explores these issues by incorporating skill development and application along with small-group discussion. The seminar is suited for parents and guardians who co-parent regarding their child. These could be individuals who are filing for divorce, have already divorced or have never married. The Crossroads of Parenting & Divorce seminar is facilitated by Shanna Moke, MA, CFLE and Melanie Vanderpol-Bailey, LICSW-PIP. The seminar is six hours in length.
