Course Description

     Kids First is a four-hour educational program designed for families to help their children cope with the difficulties of parental breakups and family conflict.  Participants are presented with information and experiences to help them learn how parental relationships have a direct effect on children, how children might respond by age and gender, how to reduce separation distress in children, how to deal with parent-child alliances, how parents might free themselves from entrenched conflict, and how to develop a functional co-parenting relationship.
