First Step: Foundations in Co-Parenting

Virtual via Zoom on Thursday Evening and Saturday Morning

This four-hour workshop introduces the foundational skills necessary for an effective co-parenting experience. The workshop explores several topics such as basic family and parenting law concepts, the role a child’s development plays in building resilience, how to self-care during a divorce/separation, and what skills are helpful for parenting together while living apart.

Workable co-parenting strategies will also be introduced to keep kids from being caught in the middle between two parents.

This is a webinar-style workshop and participants are not seen by the facilitators or other attendees. Parents should attend as early in the process as possible or at any time when struggling to work with their child’s other parent.

First Step classes are held on Zoom on Thursday evenings from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm or Saturday mornings from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, New York time (Eastern). If you live outside the New York (Eastern) time zone, please adjust your schedule to attend the class. Individuals who are fully registered will receive an email with the Zoom link prior to the class starting.
