Divorce Education


Putting Chil­dren First

Date: Sat­ur­days @ The Men­tal Health Asso­ci­a­tion of SW Florida

Putting Chil­dren First is a four hour, court man­dated, edu­ca­tional sup­port group for par­ents who are about to embark on divorce. The pro­gram rec­og­nizes that lov­ing, car­ing par­ents may lose sight of how deeply their chil­dren may be affected by their deci­sion to obtain a divorce. The thought is that if par­ents are more informed about the pit­falls of fam­i­lies in divorce, they may be more respon­sive to their children’s needs dur­ing this time.

Some of the top­ics that are cov­ered dur­ing the ses­sion include, co-parenting, deal­ing with children’s anger, deal­ing with an unhappy spouse, etc.. The idea is to facil­i­tate a dis­cus­sion within the group that will put all par­ents on a more pos­i­tive level with their chil­dren and the spouses they are divorc­ing. The goal is to empower the par­ents and to stress how impor­tant it is to share with their chil­dren that the divorce is not their fault.

The hope is that these par­ents will walk away from the class with bet­ter knowl­edge and, there­fore; cre­ate a bet­ter atmos­phere for them­selves and their chil­dren dur­ing a dif­fi­cult time.

This class is facil­i­tated by an indi­vid­ual who is of a Master’s level in social work, a licensed Mar­riage & Fam­ily Ther­a­pist or Men­tal Health Coun­selor. A cer­tifi­cate of com­ple­tion is pre­sented to all par­tic­i­pants for use through the courts.

This does not con­sti­tute med­ical or ther­a­peu­tic advice or an endorse­ment of any orga­ni­za­tion or vendor.
