This program utilizes a safe and directive teaching approach to guide parents through positive, engaging experiences. Parents are given the necessary tools to begin changing the current co-parental relationship, and improved parenting in two-home families.

Class instructors bring years of experience in co-parenting instruction and coaching, family therapy, marriage counseling, child and adolescent therapy, and parent-child reunification.

Parents are not required to attend the same date.
