Children in the Middle
October 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
The 8-week Children in the Middle (CIM) class series provides valuable skills for parents who are in high-conflict situations due to divorce, separation, or ongoing child custody issues and is designed to help parents communicate with each other and establish a functional family environment for their children. Each session is 1.5 hours, once a week.
CIM is offered free of charge and is required for families in our mediation, supervised visit and/or exchange services. This class may be court ordered, DHS recommended, child support enforcement referral or taken voluntarily. Pre-registration is required and all opposing parties must take separate classes. If your class is full or the other party has previously enrolled, you will be contacted to reschedule.
