Workshops

Parenting After Separation - High Conflict

Alberta Justice

Location: The Family Centre 9912 106 Street, Edmonton


Course Length

Saturday 9 am - 12 pm

PASHC is a no-cost 3 hour seminar available to all parents who have already completed the 6 hour Parenting After Separation workshop. PASHC is presently available in Edmonton and Calgary areas only.


The more intense, long-lasting and open the conflict between the parents during their separation, the more difficulties the child may experience. Children often respond to parental conflict with aggressive behavior, depression and other behavior problems. In some instances, a high level of conflict may continue for several years after separation. Families experiencing high conflict may routinely find themselves in court to solve issues that should be relatively simple.

CAN I ATTEND PAS WITH MY PARTNER?

NO.

Separating and/or divorcing parents are not permitted to attend the same session and there are no exceptions. Ex-partners must register in different sessions (you will be asked for your partner’s name when registering). This is to ensure the safety and comfort of all participants.


The objectives of PASHC are:

  • To provide parents with information:
  • The process of emotional disengagement.
  • What boundaries are and how to renegotiate them.
  • How to manage conflict.
  • To help parents learn about child development and the needs of children:
  • The parent-child continuum.
  • Helping children cope.
  • To encourage development of a parenting plan:
  • Maintains separation/disengagement for the parents through parallel parenting.
  • Affords some degree of safety
  • Focuses on high degree of structure to reduce opportunity for conflict.
