Toms River, NJ— The Barnabas Health Institute for Prevention, an affiliate of Barnabas Health Behavioral Health Network, is offering a two-day training program for parents going through a separation or divorce called Children in the Middle on Mondays, March 15 and March 22 from 6 to 8 pm at Community Medical Center in Auditorium A, located at 99 Route 37 West in Toms River. The two-day session costs $35 per person.
Children in the Middle is the only designated divorce education program and has been nationally endorsed by judges, lawyers, mediators, psychologists and teachers. Developed in 1992 by a clinical child psychologist/family therapist and a professor of psychology, the program was designed to benefit parents with children 3 to 15 years of age who are going through a divorce or separation.
The program is designed for parents who are currently going through a divorce or separation and would like to learn effective strategies for parenting their children during this difficult time. Through this program, parents will learn to think about the situations where conflict usually occurs and better navigate their options; use more effective methods to reduce their emotional reactions to situations and maintain control; and increase their effectiveness with and sensitivity to their children’s needs.
