Upcoming Workshops + Events
Kids’ Turn workshops help children understand and express the difficult emotions associated with parental separation and divorce.  We teach them practical skills they can use to cope with the changes happening in their lives.  The workshops provide children with a safe and supportive environment in which they can talk to other children who are going through similar experiences.  While kids are in groups with other children their own age, parents meet in separate groups to learn co-parenting and emotional intelligence skills that can be used to reduce family conflict and help support children. No class on May 23. This is not a free workshop. In order to complete you need to register on the Kids' Turn website.  A fee schedule is also found on their website.  You will be redirected there after submitting your information via this page or by clicking here.

Research shows that 67% of couples report a significant decrease in marital satisfaction in the first few years following the birth of their first child. Despite the many joys children bring, the stresses of becoming new parents are particularly challenging. During this workshop, learn tools to avoid the pitfalls that many other new and expectant parents couples fall into and ways to build your connection as a couple while providing a nurturing environment for your new baby.  We'll be discussing the three Cs:Communication: effectively communicating and connecting; Coordination: being able to work as a team to get everything done and have a life; Cuddling: connecting physically to keep the romance alive.  With W.
