Co-Parent Communication Coaching
Co-Parents may elect to have their communication monitored in effort to help them improve how they communication with each other when having to work together to carry out their parenting plan or court ordered responsibilities. Parents who want to participate in communication coaching are required to utilize a co-parenting communication app that allows for third party professionals to have access to their communications.

Monitoring of Scheduled Virtual Parenting Time with Pre and Post Session Parent Coaching
This service is a combination of parent coaching, parent education and monitored parenting time for co-parents who have scheduled virtual parenting time with their children. We utilize the Nurturing Parenting curriculum promoted by the Supervised Visitation Network. Based on the assessed needs of the family, parents and the parenting coach will work together and select competency based lessons from the curriculum to form an intervention that is customized to meet the specific needs of the particular family.
The parenting coach will meet with a parent before that parent's scheduled parenting time for 30 minutes of parent coaching and parent education. The parenting coach will then observe the parenting time session and look for opportunities to apply parenting skills, self-regulation, co-regulation and interpersonal connection while promoting safety, security and stability. After the parenting time session, the coach will debrief with the parent for about 20 minutes. The parent will receive up to an hour of parent coaching and parent education and up to one hour of monitored parenting time each session.
