There is hope for children of divorce. Licensed mental health professionals and ministry leaders need to expand their tools for working with divorced co-parents and their children by learning about the five categories of co-parenting, the six risks for kids of divorce, and how to handle the hand-offs between families in emotionally and developmentally appropriate ways for children. The presenters will also help licensed mental health professionals and ministry leaders discover what children of divorce wish they could tell their parents. In this workshop, eight client handouts will be shared, including the “Indicators of Healthy Co-parenting,” created by the presenters, along with a discussion of relevant research on this topic.
