Our Family Workshop is a co-parenting program for parents and children to attend together. Separated, divorced and never married families are invited to attend this program.
In our Family Workshops, we bring the whole family together to learn new coping and communication skills at the same time with each parent participating in a different group and children participating in groups with children of similar ages. We help children discover their voice to communicate their thoughts and feelings about their family situation, they realize that they are not alone because there are lots of other children living in two homes and they learn that their parents’ separation or divorce is not their fault. Parents gain insight into their words and behaviors and learn new skills and strategies to improve family relationships in positive ways.
We offer one Family Workshop a month and Workshops are offered throughout San Diego County on either Saturday mornings or a weekday evening. Each Workshop is nine hours long, split into 4 sessions. The program works best when both parents and children attend at the same time, although this is not a requirement. Attendance at all four sessions is required for parents to graduate and make up sessions are not allowed. It is best for children to attend all four sessions, but this is not a requirement for them to graduate.
Please note that any court order to “Complete Kids’ Turn” or “Complete a Co-Parenting Class at Kids’ Turn San Diego,” refers to attending a Family Workshop for Separated and Divorced Families.
Family Workshops are for voluntary (not court ordered) and court ordered families
