Parenting Education Program

Parenting education programs (PEP) are classes designed to educate adults about the many issues children face when their family situation changes. PEP trains participants about how to help children adjust in a healthy way to divorce or living apart from a parent. PEP includes information about children’s developmental stages, helping children adjust to parent separation, cooperative parenting, conflict management and dispute resolution techniques, guidelines for visitation and parent access, and stress reduction for children. Participation in a PEP class costs $150 per person. The program is offered in one six-hour class or two three-hour classes. For more information about registration please call Sheila Russo, 203.270.4335.
