Parenting Through Divorce Seminar
The “Parenting Through Divorce” seminar is for parents of minor children involved in the divorce process. Participants are required to register and pay online in order to confirm attendance.
At Calm Waters, children and families find a safe and supportive place to share their feelings and experiences with a support group of peers who have all experienced similar loss. Through a variety of art and play activities, as well as discussions, a child’s healing can begin. Parents also find help and support as they meet with other adults, share their concerns and learn how to help themselves and their children through turbulent times.
Calm Waters offers free grief and divorce support groups for children (3 – 18 years of age) and their families. Since feelings of loss vary with age, children meet in groups with other peers in the same age range. Guided by trained group facilitators, these children support one another, share experiences and feelings and begin to heal. While the children meet, their parents/guardians also meet to gain an understanding of what their children are experiencing and to learn how to help them through these times of change.
Parenting Through Divorce is a four-hour, court approved seminar for divorcing parents.
