Trans-parenting-Coming Soon

Seminar Information

About:

TransParenting® is a program developed by Families First, Inc.; Georgia’s largest non-profit family service agency, focusing solely on strengthening and empowering families through significant advocacy, education and intervention services and programs.  


Designed by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, TransParenting® was initially piloted in 1988 under the name Children Cope with Divorce (CCWD). Immediately successful the program was featured on 20/20, The Today Show, CNN, ABC, CBS News, The New York Times, Parade magazine and many other national and local media. Since the program was able to significantly reduce litigation in addition to helping reduce conflict and the negative effects on children, other court systems across the country wanted the program available in their communities so it became replicated on a national level. Families First then devoted resources to update and expand the program. Extensive focus groups of judges, parents, and licensed clinical social workers helped create the program now called TransParenting®. This program has now served over one and a half million parents across 40 states


Whatever stage of separation or divorce you may be in, the TransParenting® seminar will offer you tools and information to help you move your family through this period of significant change. Our program offers solutions to divorce related problems and reinforces the good parenting already happening in your home. We see divorce as an opportunity for change which can, when done thoughtfully, help all family members find peace in their future.You have probably been court ordered to take an education program for divorcing parents. Many parents, in fact over one million in the last decade have faced the same requirement and successfully completed the program. No one likes to be told that they have to take a class, especially during a period of family change, but if you come with an open mind you will find that there is a great deal to be gained for the sake of your children’s well-being.
