Co-Parenting Classes

When you and your partner have decided to go your separate ways, the best thing to do is reach out for help.

At the time of separation, you are most likely working from an emotional place, and it can be challenging to be kind and respectful to someone you are hurt by and angry with.

During this difficult time, you want to keep focused on making sure your children (child) are okay and not hurt during this time of emotional turmoil.

Co-Parenting Classes

We understand that as a single parent, most days, you have a full schedule with all of your responsibilities and your child’s (children) needs. Individualized co-parenting classes offer a valuable and effective option for individuals seeking comprehensive services. With individual classes, you can schedule with your therapist a time that works for you.

Co-parenting classes are offered online, making it even easier to attend. The goal is to ensure participants can engage in treatment without sacrificing their professional or personal obligations.

Successful co-parenting means your emotions must take a back seat to your children’s needs. Setting aside your intense feelings of anger, resentment, and hurt is the most challenging part of working cooperatively with your ex-partner. Not only is it the most challenging part, but it is also the most important.

We at Counseling ABQ can help you do that. We offer one-on-one classes at an affordable price to help you successfully co-parent, reduce your stress, and be there for your children when they need you most.
