For Children of Divorce
Even when undertaken with best intentions, co-parenting, an arrangement in a divorce or separation by which parents share in the care of a child or children, is not an easy process for parents. Many courts require co-parenting classes to help parent’s jumpstart positive changes post-litigation. Co-parenting groups will offer assistance and guidance in dealing with the emotional issues and practical adjustments commonly experienced with the end of a marriage or relationship. Groups will be facilitated by Kristin Trick, LPC
