Classes for Parents

In addition to classes, we have workshops for parents. Find out more here.

  • Couple to Co-parents is an eight-week course designed to help separated or divorced parents learn effective communication and conflict resolution skills and to foster sensitivity to their child’s needs in relation to both parents.

    Cost: $350 per person (includes intake fee)
    Income-based financial aid is available.

  • This one-time, four-hour seminar designed for divorcing parents to help them avoid common pitfalls and ensure a healthy environment for their children. This course satisfies the court requirement for divorcing parents in the state of Tennessee.

  • Adult and teen parenting education classes, using an evidence-based curriculum designed to teach positive discipline and foster healthy relationships.

    Cost: $350 per person (includes intake); 10% discount if paid in full. $50 deposit required.
    Income-based financial aid is available.

  • Remember when the biggest parenting challenge was getting your toddler to eat vegetables? Many parents of middle schoolers look back on those days and wish for a time machine that could zoom them back there. The class is designed for parents and their middle school-aged children. Parents meet in one room, children in another. Some sessions will include activities for parents and children to do together.

    Cost: $300 (10% discount if paid in full; $50 deposit - applicable to course fee - required)
    Income-based financial assistance is available.

  • Pre-teen and teenage years can be stressful—for both children and their parents. Emotions run high, and sometimes conflicts can get out of hand. If these challenges go unresolved, they can lead to risky behavior at school or during free time. They also affect other family members, including younger children in the home.

    In this interactive class, rooted in the evidence- based program Strengthening Families and led by a family coach and therapist, you’ll learn the KEY strategies to manage anger and stress, improve relationships, communicate effectively, set clear limits, and help your children thrive. Plus, you’ll get survival tips, including how to stay calm, set boundaries, and identify issues that might be more serious.

    Cost: $300 (10% discount if paid in full; $50 deposit - applicable to course fee - required)
    Income-based financial assistance is available.

  • Sometimes it feels like teenagers are from another planet. Their music, friends, and emotions change daily. A recent study found that raising adolescents is actually the most stressful time of all for parents.

    Navigating two different cultures can make things harder. That’s why we created Programa AMOR: Ayudándonos a Mejorar con Orgullo y Respeto.

    Cost: $300 (10% discount if paid in full; $50 deposit - applicable to course fee - required)
    Income-based financial assistance is available.
