About the Parents Forever program

Parents Forever is an educational program for families experiencing:

  • Divorce

  • Separation

  • Change in custody

What is Parents Forever?

Parents Forever encompasses a range of educational offerings, including  a  curriculum and online courses.

After completing a Parents Forever course, parents will be able to:

  • Describe the family transition journey and how each family member will be affected.

  • Recognize the role of self-care, parent-child relationships, and coparenting in child well-being.

  • Identify internal and external resources and strategize how to leverage these resources to promote resilience for all involved.

For Parents

Parents will receive a certificate of completion after completing the Parents Forever course. This certificate is what is needed to show a judge, court personnel, or attorney if the course was court-ordered.


For family professionals

Sign up for a  Parents Forever facilitator training. This means you will have permission and support to teach the program in your community.
