Children in Divorced / Separation Workshop (CIDS)
Four-hour mandatory co-parenting workshop for divorcing or separating parents. All workshop dates are listed in our calendar
CIDS is designed to help parents help their children while living separately, who are currently in the process of divorce/separation, are considering it, are already divorced or never married. This training will help assist your children in minimizing or eliminating trauma and adjusting to changes that occur during and after divorce or separation.
6-Week Nurturing Parenting ClassNurturing Parenting™ offers evidenced-based programs that have proven effectiveness in preventing and treating the recurrence of child abuse and neglect. The classes are skill-focused and competency-based designed to correspond to the developmental age level of children- prenatal; birth to 5 years; school-age 5-12 years; and adolescence, 13-19 years and their adult or teen parents. Nurturing Parenting™ classes are endorsed by the Department of Children Services (DCS) Community-Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) and certificates are accepted by the Hamilton County Courts. Facilitators are trained and certified to conduct the Nurturing Parenting™ classes.
Mediators are a neutral party who help parties clear up misunderstanding, determine their concerns, and resolve conflict. At Center for Family Connections (CFC), all mediators are Rule 31 Listed in Family Mediation. We can assist in resolving issues surrounding divorce, custody and parenting plans.
When parents have conflict in their relationship, there should be safety measures in place to protect their children. The CFC staff help protect children from being in the middle of conflict between parents by facilitating their safe transition from one parent to the other parent during designated visitation times. The child is safely transitioned between the parents without the parents coming in contact with one another at times determined by court orders, parenting plans or self-referrals.
When there is conflict in a family, including divorce or separation, issues of substance abuse, or other domestic violence, time for parents or other relatives with their child(ren) can become problematic. CFC provides a warm and safe environment for children to visit non-custodial parents or other relatives. Visits can be 1-2 hours and our staff can accommodate a maximum of two visits per week, per family. A trained visitation monitor is present during each visit. Supervised visitation may be court ordered or self-referred.
