At Yardley Associates, we understand that parents face unique challenges during times of major family change. By teaching the Parent Education Program, we strive to offer relevant information about helping children through their parents' separation or divorce, while minimizing additional stress. With the primary goal of supporting the children, our PEP classes and website provide a broad range of practical resources to guide parents 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. We also offer in-person and virtual trainings for parents and professionals on a multitude of topics including Grief and Loss, The Economy of Engagement, Teens and Technology, Child and Adolescent Development, Relational Aggression, and Positive Psychology.
We offer individual and family counseling for children and parents to help them manage a wide range of feelings concerning major changes in the family. By using a foundation of cognitive-behavioral therapy, play therapy, and systems theory, we support all members of the family through the separation and divorce process.

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-six years.
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 knowledge of your own child 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.
