“From Conflict to Cooperation: Supporting Parents in Child-Centered Family Restructuring and the Role of Co-Parent Coaching”

When:   April 14, 2017    9:00am-11:30am

Location: AFCC Oregon Annual Education and Meeting    McMenamins Kennedy School, Portland, OR

We know that children are best able to develop the core capacities of self-regulation, executive functioning, and flexible problem solving and become resilient and competent adults when they are protected from parental conflict. During and post-divorce, this is the essential challenge and responsibility of parents. It is also an important responsibility of the professionals helping parents navigate the divorce process. Parents and professionals need to be part of the solution not part of the problem.

What skills do parents need in order to protect their children from conflict and effectively transition from spouses to co-parents? The essential structures and skills as well as a specific framework for parents to manage conflict communication will be presented.

How can professionals help “moderately conflicted” parents transition to effective co-parents? What is co-parenting coaching or consultation? How does it differ from parent coordination, individual, and family therapy? What are the variety of services available to help parents make this transition and what service is best used for specific need?

We will discuss how professionals can advocate for their clients but not enable destructive behavior; keeping in mind the silent stakeholders in the process—the children.
