Type of service
Parent Education and Information
Parenting After Separation for Families in High Conflict (PASHC) is a three hour seminar available to parents in Calgary and Edmonton who have already completed the Parenting After Separation course. Parents may choose to attend or they may be directed by the Court to attend. Parents attend separate sessions. A certificate of completion is issued to participants.
PASHC offers information about the process of separation, how to emotionally disengage from one another and how to identify and renegotiate boundaries. Parents will be encouraged to develop a parallel parenting plan, which can be an effective tool to reduce conflict and minimize the contact between parents.
Course topics include:
