Holidays are often stressful times for separated and divorced parents and their children. That of course means it is also a stressful time for the professionals who work with these families. Conflicts often revolve around time, traditions, and travel. Underlying these conflicts is the sense of loss parents often feel when the holidays approach. This webinar will offer tips for managing conflict that professionals can provide to families during these stressful times.
