Now that parent education is court mandated, which program will suit me best?
'Divorce That Works for Children.'  This program not only gives you information about the effects of divorce on children but also teaches you strategies to help your children deal successfully with divorce.  Its small group, interactive format allows the instructors to tailor each session to the interests of the participants.
Why should I select this program?
The groups are kept small to allow the workshop to address the specific questions of the participants.  In the interactive sessions, you learn practical techniques to help your children cope successfully with the inevitable changes that divorce brings.
When and where is the program held?
The 5-hour program is held on two weekday (Thursday and Friday) mornings, once a month.  New sessions are scheduled monthly; often you may begin right away.  We are conveniently located near downtown Westborough, close to I-495, the Mass Pike, & Route 9.
What can I expect to learn?
Different techniques to help you do what's best for your child, such as:
  ¨ Parenting strategies that improve your child's adjustment to divorce
  ¨ Skills in conflict resolution to handle disputes with your child's other parent
  ¨ Guidelines for custody and visitation that benefit you and your children
What else is covered?
Information on the effects of divorce on children including:
  ¨ Explanations of your child's age-related reactions to divorce
  ¨ How your behavior affects your children
  ¨ How the stress of divorce affects your parenting
  ¨ Details about other community resources that specialize in divorce
