ONLINE CLASSES AVAILABLE
NOW OFFERING ONLINE CLASSES
In order to meet the needs of separating and divorcing parents,
Yardley Associates, LLP received an amended contract from the
State of Connecticut Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division
to offer ONLINE PEP classes. In-person groups have been suspended indefinitely by the Judicial Branch as we all take precautions to
curtail the spread of COVID-19 virus.
At Yardley Associates, LLP, we understand the many challenges that parents face during a
time of family restructuring. By offering the Parent Education Program, we provide a service
that delivers relevant information about helping children through major family change, while minimizing any additional stress on parents. Our hope is that our classes and our website
offer parents a broad range of practical resources to help their children and their families
on their chosen path forward.
We are both graduate level social workers with over 50 years of combined experience working closely with children and their families in a variety of settings, including local community services, school systems, residential/group home facilities, child/adolescent inpatient mental health services, and outpatient counseling. Having personally facilitated the Parent Education Program together for over twenty-five years, we provide exceptional educational services using a dynamic, multimedia approach.
Our curriculum is continually evolving to include current information and up-to-date, evidence-based research in the field. Most importantly, our curriculum is vastly enriched by the many experiences and stories shared by parents in our classes over the last twenty-five years.
Participants are encouraged to use Yardley Associates, LLP as a resource whenever needed. Parents can call with questions, inquire about clarifications, and/or request information about referral services. Parents are also welcome to attend (at no charge) another class cycle at any time for a “refresher.”
Working for so many years in the Greater Hartford area, we are aware of a strong network of resources.
We offer contact information for numerous supportive services, including counseling and Alternative Dispute Resolution services, as well as links to online resources.
This public website is intended to provide general information about issues related to parental separation and divorce. None of the information contained in this website can replace well-informed knowedge of your own children and family, nor can it replace the professional opinion of an informed mental health professional, mediator and/or lawyer. In addition, our resource links are provided for general information without implying endorsement or recommendation.
