The decision to divorce is one of the most stressful experiences you will go through in your life. This support workshop is for couples that have made the decision to divorce and have retained a Mediator or a Family Lawyer to represent you through the process.
Once you have made this difficult decision it’s time to take a step back and plan for how this will affect your children emotionally and the best way to make it a child centered divorce.
Taking the time to plan and focus on emotional needs of both yourself and your children will make the divorce process go much smoother when making difficult decisions that will affect your children such as custody and child support issues especially before your divorce is finalized.
Each 60-minute workshop is designed for each partner to attend 5 individual sessions that focus on stress reducing techniques, effective communication with partner and children as well as tips on how to talk with your children based on their age group to make your divorce child centered.
Session 1: Stress Reduction Techniques and dealing with emotions
