Focus on Children is a four-hour seminar offered by Pressley Ridge to help educate parents about the needs of children who are experiencing transition as the result of a custody action. Many participants are referred by the Court System; however, any interested parent may attend.
Focus on Children is led by two instructors with Masters degrees who are certified to teach the Transparenting materials used in the seminar.
Focus on Children is not a substitute for counseling or legal services. Advice or counsel for individual situations will not be given.
Case specific questions cannot be answered by Pressley Ridge staff. Certificates of participation will be provided at the end of the seminar.
