Cooperative Coparenting groups, couples, and individuals…
Divorce often results in many unrecognized feelings and issues that continue marital conflicts well past the finalization of divorce. When children are involved, it is particularly important that these conflicts do not impact the child’s ability to enjoy a healthy relationship with both parents. Cooperative coparenting helps take the weight of past issues off the child by helping both parents understand the true source of conflict.
Groups form continuously. Individual and couples work by appointment.
Please call the office for details, or use the contact form below to reserve space in the next group by typing “coparenting” in the message box.
Marriage and Relationship Enhancement groups, couples…
Relationships can become confounded with old business from past relationships, “buttons” that people can press to get reactions from you, or perhaps one of “those arguments” that you can’t seem to resolve, and may not even make sense, yet it comes back with regular frequency. Enhancing your relationship begins with an ability to speak heart to heart. You and your spouse or partner can learn to let the heart do the talking by first understanding what it is that is interfering. Our special relationship enhancement programs are designed to coach and teach simple skills that can open the door to deeper communication and understanding, while reducing conflict and pain. Join a small group, come as a couple, or come by yourself and learn how to deepen your relationship.
Use the form below and write “relationship” in the message box. We will contact you to answer questions by email or phone.
Strategic Parenting: Advanced Skills for Parents and Step Parents…
Perhaps the most difficult job you will ever have is parenting your children and step children. Parenting is not something that comes natural. It is a set of skills learned by observing our own parents, trial and error, or other less than effective methods. But parenting can be learned. Surprisingly, parenting can be simple and easy to learn when approached from a strategic mindset. Learn about the goals of misbehavior, how to manage them, and how communication and conflict styles can make or break your own effectiveness as a parent. This program has been used to train foster parents, group home employees, step parents, even juvenile justice workers with remarkable success. If you are having trouble keeping the chaos out of your home, if your teen has stopped listening to you or your spouse, or you simply want to set the best possible foundation for your younger child for future success, join our Strategic Parenting Group. New groups every three months.
