Children 1st Workshops
Children 1st is an educational program for separating parents. Legal and mental health professionals teach this six-hour class, which covers:
  • How divorce affects the children, and what children need at the time of separation to lower their stress and fears.
  • How to talk to children about the changes happening in their family.
  • How a parent’s anger and pain affects his/her parenting.
  • Redirecting energies away from other parent and towards one’s children.
  • Parenting options for divorced or separated parents, from co-parenting to parallel parenting.
  • New family shapes, healthy stepfamilies, relating to biological parents and new partners.
  • How the law and courts work in custody, visitation and support cases.
  • Alternatives to court proceedings.
  • Violations of court orders, domestic violence, and child abuse.
  • Places to get more help.

The program is certified by the New York State Parent Education and Awareness Program.

Who should take the class?
The class is for any parent going through a custody dispute or caregivers concerned about the children in such a situation. Children 1st is invaluable for parents who are not yet involved in legal proceedings. Many parents already involved in court proceedings are mandated to attend. Lawyers, therapists, teachers and family members refer parents to the class.
