Provisioning for the Journey through Divorce - Kelowna

February 20, 2018 6:00 PM

Provisioning for the Journey

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 Divorce Salons offer participants both a learning opportunity and the chance to connect with others who are going through similar experiences.

For our February 20th Salon in Kelowna, we are pleased to welcome Therapist, Child Specialist and Divorce Coach Sharla Schofield, RCC, RCSW.

As with any challenging journey, the key to success lies in the preparation and provisioning.  To build a strong infrastructure for your post-divorce life, you need to identify your own goals and values and create a plan that moves you towards your vision.  During this workshop, Sharla will introduce four tasks designed to support participants along their journey and forge positive outcomes:

  1. Establish individual and community support resources and networks.
  2. Develop your communication and conflict management strategies.
  3. Enhance your emotional resiliency and capacity for managing stress and change.
  4. Develop a full range of parenting skills to use on your own and when co-parenting.

Light refreshments will be served.
