Parenting Together After Divorce Presented by Nichole Hart

Parenting together after divorce or separation presents challenges, even in the best of circumstances.  These challenges can be heightened through a court system that leans toward highlighting differences and promoting adversarial approaches.  In this presentation, we will become familiar with how our language as clinicians can make a positive difference in co-parenting situations, and how we can avoid becoming a negative advocate. 

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the importance of using strengths-based language with co-parents in our sessions
  • Become familiar with resources available to co-parents in navigating the court system, especially as related to high-conflict divorce
  • Highlight helpful literature resources dealing with co-parenting

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will explore an extended grief and loss model directly related to chronic illness
  • Participants will take away tools and strategies to assist clients in understanding the trauma, chronic illness connection, ways to support the body as it heals both physically and emotionally, and how the clinician can support the process and hold the space.
