Creating a Healthy Co-Parenting Relationship

November 19, 2019 5:45 PM

Connect Family Law invites you to be a part of its ongoing Divorce Salons, a resource for individuals dealing with separation or divorce. Combining the best of a speaker series and a meet-up group, our Salons offer participants both a learning opportunity and the chance to connect with others who are going through similar experiences.

For our November 19, 2019 Salon, we are excited to welcome Kelly-Anne Breen of Breen Counselling, and Abby Petterson, of AJ Petterson & Associates. Both Kelly-Anne and Abby are registered clinical counsellors and divorce coaches with a combined 30  years of experience working with children to ensure that parenting decisions consider the needs and interests of the children.  They will describe divorce/co-parenting coaching and how it can be used to create a healthy co-parenting relationship. They will also provide communication tips for parents.

Salon attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions, and to contribute as much (or as little) as they feel comfortable.

Light refreshments will be served!

To register, please visit our Eventbrite page here.

As Divorce Salon discussions are designed to be confidential, we will ask participants to sign a brief confidentiality document before the event. We will also complete a conflict check at the time of registration to rule out any possible conflicts of interest.

Salon events are limited to 25 participants.
