Calvary Counseling Center offers H.O.P.E. (Healthy & Objective Parenting Education), a state approved parent education class. The class is led by co-instructors who have undergone the training required by the Commonwealth of Virginia and have studied and researched the latest information about the importance of parent involvement after separation or divorce. The classes are child-focused and include lecture, discussion and video. Topics covered include the impact of separation on children, parallel parenting and co-parenting strategies, and the needs and rights of your children. This class meets the parent education guidelines established by the Supreme Court of Virginia.
