What is C.O.P.E.? C.O.P.E. is a certification program that has been specifically designed to assist high conflict divorcing and separating parents to improve their coping skills and to expand their understanding of how to communicate more effectively with their co-parent in order to minimize the negative impact of divorce on their child(ren).
What is C.O.P.E. for Kids? An optional class for the child(ren) ages 6 to 17 of parents attending the certification program will be available to provide a safe place for children to express their feelings and to help them with the challenges of coping with their parents separation and divorce.
Who is an appropriate referral? Divorcing or separating parents who are court ordered or voluntary. The class is designed for both parents to attend together who are experiencing difficulty communicating effectively with their co-parent, resulting in high conflict and a lack of stability necessary to effectively manage their lives and the lives of their children. In specialized cases we will allow one parent to attend with out their co-parent.
