 Cooperative Parenting

As part of the divorce process, the State of Tennessee requires divorcing parents to attend parent education seminars. In partnership with the Hamilton County Court System, we at The Transformation Center offer Cooperative Parenting and Divorce classes on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings. The aim of these classes is to help broken families learn to communicate more effectively and to encourage divorcing couples to work together to decrease the negative impact of divorce on their children. For more details about the program and information on fees and scheduling, please refer to the “Cooperative Parenting” tab.

Abuse Intervention with Life Skills (AILS)

AILS is certified by the State of Tennessee and is classified as a non-profit, tax exempt organization serving Hamilton County and the surrounding counties for individuals charged with domestic violence or domestic assault. Some men or women also attend the program as a result of an order of protection issued by family court. AILS is the most extensive, informed and interactive resource to date examining the complex realities of abuse. Participants identify and explore the beliefs that support actions, justifications, and rationales for abusive behavior. They also learn non-violent behaviors to replace aggressive ones through class discussion and the use of the Power and Control Log. Although AILS is not part of the court system, a report is made to the court or probation officer about an individual’s class participation. In order to avoid dismissal from the program, participants must attend each session, participate, and complete the program. For more details about the program and information on fees and scheduling, please refer to the “AILS” tab.
