The Resource Center for Separating & Divorcing Families

Therapeutic Services

Co-Parenting consultation

Many parents going through separation or divorce find it helpful to meet with the RCSDF to discuss their plan moving forward as a co-parenting team.  Co-parent coaches can provide assistance and support for parents as they face the multiple challenges associated with a divorce or separation.

Parents may also elect to work with our team to develop a concrete co-parenting plan.  Parties will work with graduate students and staff to identify the specific components of the plan, (such as; rules and strategies for discipline, agreements about the child's participation in extracurricular activities, plans for communication about medical concerns, etc.), and methods for resolving future disputes.  These plans will be specifically tailored to the physical, cognitive, emotional, and psychological development of the children.

This service provides family members with a limited number of sessions to help parents work through any co-parenting issues.
