S.T.E.P. Positive Parenting classes begin the week of April 18, 2011, and are held one night a week for 7 weeks from 7:15 to 9:15pm. The price is $125 for one parent or $175 for a couple (includes class materials). Get more information about AVCS’s S.T.E.P. Positive Parenting program.

The Cooperative Parenting and Divorce program is for parents who are either divorced or in the process of divorcing. Learn how to parent as a team when you are no longer a couple. The class focuses on shifting roles from former spouses to co-parents, managing anger and resolving conflict, and understanding the factors and issues that influence a child’s post-divorce adjustment.

Cooperative Parenting and Divorce classes begin the week of April 18, 2011, and are held on Thursdays for 8 weeks from 7:15 to 9:15pm. The price is $165 per person (includes class materials). Get more information about AVCS’s Cooperative Parenting and Divorce program.
