Divorce is a very stressful experience for both parents and children. Children Cope with Divorce is a four-hour educational program for divorcing parents that focuses on the needs of children. This seminar will help you:

  • learn about emotional reactions of divorce 
  • learn how families experience divorce 
  • learn typical reactions of children 
  • learn the developmental needs of children 
  • pitfalls to avoid 

Classes are offered in Indianapolis, Noblesville, Bloomington*, Nashville, Batesville and Shelbyville. (* the Bloomington Justice Building is at the northwest corner of 7th and College Ave.)

This class is for adults going through a divorce or separating. This class is for parents ONLY. Do not bring children to the class as child care will NOT be provided. This class is required by the court in which your divorce petition has been filed. After attending the seminar, participants receive a certificate and their attendance will be confirmed in court. Each parent should schedule the class within 30 days of filing for divorce. Persons with restraining orders against the other spouse will not be able to attend the same class together. They will need to register for separate classes.

Parents not mandated by a court may also attend these sessions.
