Transparenting seminar

For Parenting After Divorce or Separation

meets Supreme Court of Virginia requirements

The TransParenting seminar provides strategies to help divorcing parents shift attention to their children’s needs. Its ultimate goal is to help children cope with their parents’ separation.

TransParenting emphasizes each parent’s responsibility to provide a nurturing, non-threatening environment. Parents learn ways to reduce the negative impact of divorce on their children by focusing on separation as seen through their child’s eyes. TransParenting also provides strategies to help children adjust to the changes in their lives.
