B 3: Positive Co-parenting—Sasha Silverman and Glen Henderson

Parenting while separated or divorced has challenges, as well as golden opportunities for compassion and growth. In this workshop, Glen and Sasha will share their process of learning to peacefully co-parent, and will highlight specific strategies that have helped them and their children regain a sense of stability and harmony within their new family system. Workshop will be open to questions and discussion regarding the participants' particular situations. Specific issues may involve dealing with resentments, thinking that you have un-cooperative spouse, tug-of-war with finances or time with the child, differences in values, handling new relationships, extended family issues, managing holidays, joint activities, and more.  Our goal is for you to leave the workshop feeling better equipped to create a more peaceful, kind, and courageous co-parenting dynamic.
