Mediation Works North is an organization founded on the mission of helping families in conflict, mostly in the area of divorce whether there are children or no children, and also helping unmarried with custody and parenting time scheduling.
Impact Parent Education for Separating and Divorcing Parents
This is an online course available to you at any time once payment and registration is received and processed. Your name will be entered into our data base and you will receive a welcome email, downloadable and printable Parent Handbook and resources, and course links that are available to you even after the course is completed. The fee of $50 already reflects a reduced fee available to all parents equally to make the course affordable to all parents on an equal basis.
The course can be taken through reading and submitting of evaluation questions if a parent is uncomfortable with an online course or has slow internet connections or by viewing the recorded modules and completing the course fully online. Some parents do both the reading of materials and the recorded modules. This is to provide parents with options. Both methods provide parents with a complete program that also provides printable resources, practical information, suggestions on improving communication, resolving conflict in difficult co-parenting circumstances, improving parent-child communication to help children understand family changes, practical suggestions on how to manage parenting time scheduling and understanding the emotions of divorce and relationship breakup.
A parent education class is not about teaching parenting skills, but a court ordered parent education course is teaching parents how to lessen effects of divorce or separation on children, understanding legal terminologies and court processes, understanding the rights and duties of unmarried parents, and other court mandated topics.
"Mediation Works North provides families with a parent education experience that goes beyond the legal expectations and impacts the hearts of families in the midst of transition. The modules speaks to parents on a personal and professional level outside of the courtroom and seeks to impact the homes of children in a positive way."
