Testimonials

“Three things in my life saved me from going down a path of misery and depression:  my mother, God, and the staff (at Headway)…With each struggle I face now, I am filled with the courage and skills to take a healthy approach to fixing whatever it is that is I am having trouble with.”

Co-Parenting

Co-Parenting is a 4 1/2 hour one-time educational seminar for parents around ongoing cooperative parenting issues. The objective of this seminar is to assist parents in creating a functional divorce, where each family member is moving toward healing from this family change and rebuilding their lives. This seminar will encourage parents to assist their children during this family transition, emphasize the importance of workable communication between co-parents, and provide tools to meet the ever-changing needs of their children. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the seminar. This program satisfies the court requirement for Co-Parenting.

**Parents in a contested divorce are required by Minnesota state law to attend eight hours of parent education, which is satisfied by taking both Co-Parenting and Legal and Economic Aspects of Divorce (LEAD). Parents can attend together or alone.**

Held in Richfield, Golden Valley, and Inver Grove Heights.

Please see calendar for times and dates.

Co-parenting Topics Include:

  • Meeting children’s developmental needs
  • Business-like communication
  • Conflict resolution strategies
  • Children’s rights and parents’ responsibilities
  • Helping children move between homes
  • Things children need to hear during transitions
  • Self-care and emotional stability
  • Managing typical divorce traps
  • Dating and step-parenting

Recent parent feedback

  • A lot better than the online course I took previously. The presenter did a good job and made it exciting to follow along with the material. Also, getting together with other people with kids the same age group and hearing their stories was very nice.
  • Although online can be convenient, I think having in person classes is important because you can hear from other parents and get ideas and suggestions.
  • Great presenter! So connected and personal - it was nice to have someone present that understands the process and understands children.
  • Simply sitting in a room with other parents going through the same thing is critically comforting.
  • I think a person may tune out more in an online class. Hearing from the group adds interest and personal stories that help put things in perspective.
  • Better in person because you can always learn from other peoples' experiences and idea. Online would have been very impersonal.

In our follow up survey of participants one year after attending our seminars, 92% found the classes helpful or extremely helpful in co-parenting with their partner. 96% would recommend the Headway seminars to other parents in a similar situation.

Individuals who do not speak English are welcome to bring an adult to interpret for them during the class. The Co-Parenting curriculum is also available in Spanish.
