Participation in co-parenting counseling can result in a number of benefits, including improving interpersonal relationships for the benefit of your child(ren) and resolution of the concerns. Working towards these benefits requires effort on your part and your active involvement, honesty, and openness in order to change. You will be asked for your feedback and views on progress and other aspects of co-parenting and you will be expected to respond openly and honestly. Sometimes more than one approach can be helpful in dealing with a situation. Remembering unpleasant events can be difficult. You may be challenged in some assumptions or perceptions or the counselor may propose different ways of looking at, thinking about, or managing situations that may feel upsetting. You may feel challenged or disappointed. Remember that sometimes a decision that is in the best interest of the child may be disappointing for one or both parents. Positive changes in co-parenting will sometimes happen quickly, but more often takes time and patience on your part.
An individual session with each parent typically occurs first (unless otherwise specified by the court, if court-ordered) and then sessions become joint sessions with both parents and the counselor.
There are ground rules set to ensure the healthiest counseling environment possible.
Focus remaining on the child(ren) and their best interests
Not engaging in accusatory statements towards the other parent
Showing respect to each other
Embracing compromise where possible
